The Perfect Day Formula
Craig Ballantyne is one of the ultimate mentors in the world of fitness. I’ve always been an underling of many of his mentees more than Craig himself, but his impact on the fitness world has resonated strongly within me.
The Perfect Day Formula is Craig’s take on how to accomplish more and make the most out of every single day on this planet, because you never know when your time might be up. Memento mori.
This short book is well worth the price of admission. It breaks down the perfect day into three steps:
Control. Conquer. Concentrate.
Control your mornings - plan the night before, have a routine, and avoid distractions like phone calls and emails.
Conquer your afternoon - Maintain discipline with deadlines and making sure that meetings are limited to what is essential.
Concentrate in the evening on what is important to you - family time, walking your dog, hobbies, and productive winding down for the night (not glued to the tv).
