Life Scripting: Using the Right Building Blocks to Be Playful, Have Fun, and Win

Your life has been like a book. All kinds of drama, challenges, overwhelm.

Now it’s time to turn the book into a movie.  You have a chance to produce, direct and star in… well… the rest of your life.

Why not?

You’re here and it IS an option.

I literally walk around the shopping mall on this day two weeks ago as a kid. I want to feel what it is like to be very young. I want to be responsible and respectful while having fun as 7 or 17 year old would. And I do the same things that  little kids do and wonder what impact it will have on my psyche, my feelings, my mind, my appearance. This was one of the days I ran this experiment here in Poland.

Building Blocks for Success

When Power Begins: The First Part of Your Day – The First Part of Their Day

Writing your LIFE SCRIPT requires getting off to a good start. That doesn’t mean breakfast, it means QUALITY and strength of YOU-NESS.

The ability to use your thoughts and behaviors to make your desired outcomes and intentions manifest. (Manifest is not my favorite word, but it does fit here.)

It’s all simple: What you do the first four hours after you wake up is WHO and WHAT you WILL BE for the next few years.

Because you know that power is almost always at peak levels earlier in the day you have a huge advantage over the rest of the world.

I am not a fan of mornings BUT, when a company brings me in to present to their employees or management, I invariably present first on that day. That means 8 AM or 9 AM.


I all but strongly suggest that time not simply to be THE Keynote Speaker for the event but I will be the MOST EFFECTIVE speaker at the event.

Consider this:

Your presentation of information, or ANYTHING will be best when you are most aware of your behaviors and how the audience is responding to you. That is going to happen early in the day.

Additionally as any day goes on, the probability of something bad happening that day rises with each passing minute. Would you prefer to present to an audience filled with people having a good day at 9 AM or having a lousy day at 4 PM?

Legend Point: Mood Is Contagious

That is critical. Mood is contagious. If your friend gets news that upsets them at lunch and then suppress the desire to lash out, that uses up those precious self regulation units. That means When the presenter speaks three hours later that audience member is going to have much more difficulty attending to the presentation. That audience member is more likely to text or perform other similar obsessive and counter productive behaviors.

The same is true for the presenter in this case.

Thus, the earlier in the day I can present means that not only will I be at my highest level of power, but so will most everyone else in the audience. Thus I want to speak FIRST anywhere I go.

You can generalize this to sales calls or management meetings. Either of those kind of experiences happening later in the day are much more likely to be ineffective than the same people doing the same things early in the day.

Power Source from The Late Night

Working Late Has Advantages Kevin Hogan

There are exceptions. Quite often, I find that working at 2 am has huge advantages over working at 11 AM. For example, if I am writing a book or working on writing Coffee with Kevin Hogan, you can bet that the phone rings a lot more at 11 AM than it does at 2 AM.

That means that more people will be demanding my attention, USING UP my mental and emotional resources, when I could have scheduled the important work for the middle of the night instead.

I like to write emails at 2 AM because only 10% of the people I email are up at 2 AM. I have at least 8 hours before I will see responses that might require self discipline and emotional regulation (controlling my emotions). Every time I have to do something that takes me away from the project that must get done, I know I have scheduled my day incorrectly.

You need uninterrupted time to accomplish meaningful projects.
