Author & Entrepreneur Clay Clark talks about how important it is to schedule a time to think and plan. Schedule “meta-time” each day. Take a timeout to get out of where you are and think above and beyond your current circumstances.

1 Simple Thing Action

Physically block off time in your calendar (place and time) to create your master To-Do list where you keep any thoughts you want to turn into something. Write down any big ideas on that list, and go over them every morning while listening to some music, creating a meditative environment.

Mentioned In Episode

Clay’s 3-Step System: Brainstorm and write down all your goals, what you want your life to be in spirit, mind, body, relationships, and finances. Then run each goal through these three questions:

1. Step 1: What do you want?

2. Step 2: What does that cost?

3. Step 3: What value are you going to exchange for it?
