Inspired Lifestyle Management System

"If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." --Peter Drucker
I'm to repeat these words over and over again throughout the contents of this journey. Not saying only because I believe in it. I am spending enormous amount of time and energy developing trackable lifestyle management system.

So that a progress can be always reviewed, and improved where necessary.

As a complementary tool to a Life Book (unique to individual needs), a purpose of 'The Ideal Day Blueprint' is to help develop strong, enlightening habits for the inspired life. In a fastest way possible, without fail.

The Blueprint was designed around The 7 Timeless Virtues of Enlightened Living, as guided in a book 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari', by Robin Sharma.

Crafted for an extraordinary day, full packed with ingredients to lead into fulfilling lifestyle.

Enlightened Living by The 7 Virtues

"Develop Joyful Thoughts, Follow Your Life's Mission and Calling, Cultivate Self-Discipline and Act Courageously, Value Time as Your Most Important Commodity, Nourish Your Relationships, and Live Fully, One Day at a Time." --The Monk
July 2014 marks a date when I've read this book, for a first time. It got into my hands in ashram's library, during a visit to India. Maybe because it reached me in such spiritual environment, and perhaps at a perfect time, the experience with The Monk, it touched me. Deeply.

While taking many notes between my reading, and writing them down on a paper, I noticed something interesting started to form. Inside.

It felt strongly - I want to experience the 7 virtues of enlightened living, with every single day of my life.

Once back in UK, developing of the idea continued. Basic guiding checklist for inspired lifestyle management system was created, and followed through for couple of months. Then it stopped. Guessing, the reason WHY was not big enough, to keep me going.

Events in 2016 forced me back into what had begun 2 years ago - searching for a life of deeper purpose, wealth & peace. Through the enlightening ways.

Having learned from mistakes of a past, a new, more advanced Blueprint is born. And now, followed.

Below are project stats, total results, as it stands end of July 2017.

Activities Tracked

Developing the Inspired Lifestyle for a first time in 2014, I over-complicated it. Too many unrealistic points & targets were added into daily checklist. Too many important details I overlooked. And even though it helped me, tremendously, to grow along a road of self-mastery, it also made my life feel overwhelmingly intense.

Sure enough, a day came when it all became too much to handle. At that time I had no sense of urgency, or pain strong enough to push through a given challenge. It stopped. Hence, once again, I failed.

This time around, my reason WHY is strong. And new, re-created tools are way more user friendly. Not too hard, not to easy to follow through. Even for my busier than ever life.

How has it been going?

The stats above are displaying the exact same results as in my Ideal Day Blueprint. So far, not even once I was able to hit 100% on any given day. Not yet.

However, as I came to learn by now - the lifestyle of your Ideal Day can be experienced 80%+ of a time.

Not easily, but it certainly is a possible reality.

And more than just a dream.

Congruent Character

What would be a meaning of any blueprint, or lifestyle management system, if your daily activities does not bring you inner-joy & self-fulfillment?

Could not agree more with the following words by R. Sharma: "Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as to think."

So often we choose a direction based on opinions of others. Be it parents, spouse, friends or society. But what do we actually value, as individuals? In our hearts?

To get me to this point, I had to really think. Dig deep. To undertake life changing Self-Discovery steps. To finally understand my own personality, true passions, values, needs, vision, purpose. And find a direction for meaningful path, to where should I be heading next.

Then put it all down into what I now call 'Life Book'.

Today, I am making sure that everything I do, fills me in. And brings me joy. Emotionally, spiritually, as well as physically. As well as to build my character.

A time when enough is enough, it already came.

No more days to waste, living someone else's lie.

"Ritual of a Congruent Character - this ritual requires you to take daily, incremental action that are congruent with your true character. The actions you take come together to form your habits and your habits lead you to your destiny. When all your actions are congruent and aligned with principles, such as: industry, compassion, humility, patience, honesty and courage, you will feel a deep sense of inner harmony and peace. Act with integrity. Be guided by your heart. The rest will take care of itself. You are never alone. Your character is build when you act in a way that corresponds with these principles." --The Monk

The idea of a Blueprint is to have a trackable, simple to follow, yet super-powerful tool to guide into the experience of the Ideal Day Lifestyle. And to help develop strong, enlightening habits for the inspired days, to live through every given day.

Then systemize the process as much as possible, making it difficult (if not impossible) to fail.

I call it 'freedom automation'.

"I dream of a lifestyle where abundance is taken care for me, naturally. From a time I start my day, until the end of it. Through inspiring daily habits, and in the most enlightening way.

On autopilot."

Freedom Automation

Freedom automation to me is a simple lifestyle management system to free me from unnecessary thinking. I'm referring to thinking about those important activities we know we should be performing daily, if we want to succeed in every area of life. Activities that are nothing but natural habits to those, who are already successful.

The great-great Masters did not lie, when they said that abundant life is available to everyone. It all comes down to one word - 'habits'. Right habits for effective thinking, speaking, and action taking. It didn't take high school diploma to understand that much. 

Agree, I am still miles away from where I know I can (and I will) be. Yet, I know it already what exactly the inspiring lifestyle feels like. I am experiencing glimpses of it, every day.
This experience comes through a 'Conscious Living'. A living which contains a formula for success, and is created around meaningful, effective daily rituals.

Where all that is required from me, is to just DO-THE-DO.


A Journey, as Shared Through Blueprint

These days I get up in a morning, and for my enlightening dailies I follow the Blueprint. My personal assistant (oh Technology Almighty!) is helping to remember everything that needs to be done. I then review my day in the evening. 

A Blueprint generates visual report, to show if I'm not overlooking any important areas, such as:
Health & Body
Relationships
Financial Freedom
Time & Productivity
Fun & Celebration
Self-Mastery & Purpose
Peace & Spirituality
Contributions to the World

It also shares a story, as how this Life Journey progress. It tells whether this life is being celebrated and helps to visually see the actual reality.

It also follows, closely, emotional states throughout coming months, to give a clear feedback on how the days are effected, and where or how the improvements could be made to keep one on a healthy, positive track. 

The other important factor it takes into consideration is personal wealth tracker, and how this category reflects on other areas of life. 




Most importantly, a Blueprint generates Master Number. A number which is generated from various most important totals of a month.

If a number is increasing monthly = growth. If not, then it's a stage of 'stuck'. Or even worse, going down the hill... It's as simple as that. No more 'lying' to one-self, or walking through life in a blind!

MASTER NUMBER
Today, that's the only way for me to know, whether I am on or off right track. I simply would not move a step without being able to clearly review the progress of my daily journey.

Especially when there is so much to do, in so little time.

I can no longer imagine how would it ever be possible to aim for experience of an ideal day, every day, if not to have the effective lifestyle management system to rely on.

Without such tools, I'm pretty sure, I would fail as miserably as with every attempt I had made in a past. Something I can no longer afford.

Nor that another failure is necessary.

For no one.
