Hey, this is Prakhar, here to help you design your epic life. In the last episode, we covered your 1 to 10-year strategy so that you reach closer to your vision. Now in this episode, I’m going to cover, how to change your life in just 1 to 3 months by doing sprints. These sprints are going to improve your life and take you to the next level of your journey.
The reason why you don’t grow is because you’re being too soft on yourself. If the change doesn’t scare you, it’s not a sprint. It’s just going through life and hoping things will get better. So kiss goodbye to the comfort land and do the thing you are scared to do. And you know what that is. I don’t need to tell you that. The scary change that you’ve been avoiding for so long and now it’s time to do it.
So I want a commitment from you. Go ahead and comment below. Make it public so that I and other people can hold you accountable. Tell it to your friends and make an announcement of the scary change that you’re going to go through. Because once you do that, the only option you will have is to adapt to it. You’ll either adapt or you’ll stay average. The choice is yours
You know what, you can execute these sprints even if you have 30 minutes a day. I wrote a post on how to change your life in 30 minutes a day and you can read it by heading over to DesignEpicLife.com/changelife.
Now here comes the big thing. Forget work-life balance for yours sprints. Sprints are not about balancing your life. No, I am not telling you to sacrifice everything but what I am saying is that you can maintain other things while you perform your sprint in 1 or maximum 3 areas of your life. Because if you try to balance everything all at once, those sprints will not be effective enough.
So yes, you do need your sleep, you do need to eat well, you do need to move so that you can function well but you got to make a sacrifice at something. And I am not asking you to be this way forever. This is for just these 1 to 3 months sprints. So choose your priorities for these sprints and go for it. Maybe you will give up reading the news, maybe you will give up leisure, maybe you will give up hanging out with friends. Whatever it might be, choose the thing you are willing to give up to get what you want.
What sacrifice will you make? Once you’re clear on that, it’s time to craft the plan of action. For that you can use the framework of SMART goals where you’ll set a very specific goal and you’re going to make it measurable which is attainable and relevant to what you want to accomplish. And finally, it has to have a timeline which would be anywhere between 1 to 3 months
After each sprint, you’re going to measure the outcome. What final results did you get? And based on that, you’re going to extract the lessons you learned so you can apply them in your next sprint whenever that is. You can take a break in between or you can do continuous sprints while making sure you’re sane and taking care of yourself.
Whatever you do, make sure these sprints are not easy because at the end of the sprints, you’ll be proud of yourself. Even if you don’t reach the outcome that you wanted, you’ll be proud to take the steps and you’ll learn at least something that you can use for your next sprint
Remember, you can have anything, but you can’t have everything all at once. Now go run my friend
Until next time, keep designing your epic life
