Accelerate Your Success with Daily Reviews
Discover the importance of reflection.

Inventor and philosopher Buckminster Fuller suggested the importance of living your life in "day-tight" compartments. By completing each day saying, "This I want to keep, and this I release," you unburden your brain, freeing it for creativity and the clear pursuit of your goals.

Do your days just seem to run together in one unending blur?

Or, do you look back and review your day to gain clarity about where you're at and where you're heading?

At the end of each day, I like to do what I call a check-in— a quick review of the last 24 hours. It gives me a chance to review the decisions I've made, honor my successes, and consider other options that will serve me better.

It's an important strategy we use with great success in our New History Generator Paraliminal CD. It can multiply the benefit of all you learn today and accelerate your personal and professional development.

In his famous autobiography, Benjamin Franklin reported that a mental review of his day was the single most powerful self-development tool he ever used. His technique involved developing one of 13 personal "virtues" each day for two weeks. For 14 days, he would focus in the morning on developing one virtue and then at the end of his day, mentally review how he did.

Discover how this daily process can immediately contribute to your success. Try it right now:

  • Sit back and relax.

  • Recall yourself in the different situations from your day—don't judge yourself!

  • Notice how you responded to events. Recognize and acknowledge the thoughts, words, actions, or feelings that helped you progress in a positive direction.

    • Did you do things to move in the direction of your goals?

    • Did you miss any opportunities to progress?

    • Did you make choices that led you astray?

    • What might you do differently if faced with a similar situation?

Taking stock of your choices automatically helps you act more decisively. And acknowledging your successes increases your self-confidence and level of trust within yourself. Your brain will automatically work to create more success in your life.

Your successful day today is a series of successful thoughts in any single moment in time. These moments of success combine to form your day, your week, your months, and your year. Each successful year combines to create the life you've imagined and the success you desire.

To help you stay on track towards your goals, I recommend that you listen to an audio program I created called, New History Generator. It includes a guided mental review to help you gain essential feedback about your day that you can apply toward your success tomorrow.

This program includes two sessions of the unique Paraliminal technology of personal achievement. Simply push play, close your eyes, relax, and listen. You will be led through a closed-eye process that activates your “whole mind” with a precise blend of music and words to help you acquire new behaviors.

    I’m just learning how to use SuccessNet – a BNI member for less than a year. As an author and creative writing teacher, I wasn’t sure if the podcasts and articles here would be too ‘business-y’ for me, but sure enough, again, BNI comes through and shows that being successful in your business, whatever it is, means staying true to yourself, listening to yourself, being self-reflective, and of course, giving to others. I found this article by Dr. Scheele useful and inspiring, and I plan on exploring the Paraliminal Programs.

    Good stuff! I tend to do a weekly recap. An evaluation of all that happened (the good, bad, and ugly) and where I stand with my goals, relationships, honey-do list.
