Set yourself up for success

Good afternoon!

Well today I did something that I haven't done in along time! I went over to Chalene's Johnson like page on facebook to see what was going.  I haven't been visiting for awhile. For some reason Chalene just doesn't pop up in my normal news feed as it used to.  Chalene is a pusher, you can tell by her posts, she wants to make sure you are doing what you need to do to achieve your own personal goals.  So its not like she is pushing to do things that are not aligning with yourself...which I like, her motivational push is to make sure you set up yourself to achieve the success that you are looking for.  So with that said, she posted this question:

"Set yourself up for a successful tomorrow! What can you do this evening to MAKE SURE you set it off tomorrow?"

It got me thinking in several things. 

1.  I should set up my alarm to be a Turbo Drill...you know the sirens, and the music starts...well, this is not my idea, but I saw it in a funny video on youtube about being a Turbo addict, and it made me laugh, and said to myself, HEY! that can actually help push myself to get up at 5am as I always say I will, but very rarely do!   I thought that cute, and in all seriousness the siren before the turbo always gets me excited! so I am thinking it will be hard to ignore

2.   When I got to bed each night, I bring the ipad, and always read, but I am always reading historical romance novels or sci-fi book...bet you didn't know that about me huh?  yeah, I know...its just a time to unwind and not really think about any issues that might rest heavily in my mind...and its good, but I have some major goals I want to accomplish, which if I do can give so many other things, as well as free time to read my historical and sci-fi books, SOOO a new habit I want to set up for myself, is instead of reading fun but really non-sense books I should focus on  personal development books.  I mean I already read them about 10 pages in the morning...but it will not hurt if I read in the evening.  And yes, we all need time to unwind, and not be so structured, BUT I KNOW! I KNOW for a fact that in order to achieve what you want you need to do more...so reading extra personal development at night is going to help me so that I am in the right frame of mind in the morning :)

3.  I should also prepare lunches...but I probably won't do this.  Tomorrow I am planning on Turkey Sandwich, and I don't want my bread to get soggy from the hummus....so...even though I could prepare the lunches, I won't :) but that is a conscious choice on my part, and since I will be waking up at 5am tomorrow it won't matter time wise!

So what about you?  What you can do this evening to start tomorrow on the right foot?
