“The key is not the will to win… everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.” — Bobby Knight
What are your 3 Wins for Today?
The simplest way to use Agile Results to slay your day is to start with that question.
3 Wins for Today is a good way to avoid overload and overwhelm.
It’s a good way to bubble up all and simplify all that you plan to achieve today into a simple story of your 3 Wins for Today.
You might have an endless sea of reminders and a laundry list of To Dos.
But this is your chance to step back and tell a story of today about the 3 most meaningful, the 3 most significant victories or highlights in your day.
These are your 3 Wins for Today.
This is a great way to practice mindfulness and to help your mental health by creating clarity and practicing purpose.
The simple act of identifying your 3 Wins for Today forces you to prioritize.
It also forces you to work back from the end in mind, instead of simply hacking you way forward through your day, hoping you achieve meaningful outcomes.
You start there.
You imagine if this were the end of your day, and you were looking back on your day, what are those 3 Wins that you intend to achieve?
A little intention goes a long way, especially when your day can be full of distractions and competing priorities for your time, energy, and attention.
Your 3 Wins for Today is a simple mind tool to remind you what’s important for today.
You will be able to better balance all the urgent things that pop up throughout your day, if you have a North Star vision for your day.
Your 3 Wins for Today are your North Star vision.
If you don’t know where to start, you can simply think in terms of 3 scenes in your day: morning, noon, and night.
Turn those scenes in your day into victory scenes.
They could be showing up for your morning workout, a meeting that goes your way, and some sort of cap in your day where you feel invigorated and alive for a day well done.
You will improve with practice and through practice you will build a habit.
And this simple habit will be your force multiplier over time to help you achieve things above and beyond what you can imagine.
Because carving out 3 Wins for Today brings together proven practices for bringing out your best and applying your time, energy, and attention to meaningful results.
You know you are doing it right when your 3 Wins for Today inspires you and pulls you forward through your day.
Turn your chores into chances, and win your day, the Agile Way.
Every day is a fresh start and a chance for you to inspire yourself to new levels.
Remember, simply ask yourself and reminds yourself: “What are my 3 Wins for Today?”
