As you may know, I’m a big fan of Darren Hardy. I first picked up his book “The Compound Effect” several years ago and was blown away by the content he delivered in his book. Within a few years of applying the compound effect, I was able to completely turn around my life from being broke, overweight and credit card debt to earning over 6 figures, big bank account, no credit card debt and abs.
I know it sounds hyperbole but applying the Darren Hardy’s compound effect has greatly improved my life for the better.
Just recently Darren Hardy released a short course titled “The Sunday Planning System”. The story behind this is that Darren attended a boat show where he met a multi billionaire who shared his system to attaining all his wealth.
This multi billionaire taught Darren the Sunday Planning System.
The concept behind the Sunday Planning System is that every Sunday, you sit down and write out your goals which keeps you focused. It sounds incredibly simple, and it really is, but it’s also easy to disregard it.
As with all success principles, they are simple but it’s easy to get faked out by looking for complex systems. For example, in order to lose weight, one must simply not consume too many calories beyond the average calorie intake. If you consume more, you gain weight, if you consume less, you lose weight, it’s that simple. However most people would look for a complex weight loss system which entails all sorts of crazy methods.
Same goes for the Sunday Planning System. The system is incredibly simple and easy to apply. But don’t be faked out on it’s simplicity for this system is the reason why this Multi Billionaire got to where he is today.
So what does it look like?
It looks like this.
You have 3 goals and you have the devils vortex.
The 3 goals are your primary goals that you must focus on. It’s imperative that all the actions you do fall into those 3 goals. The rest falls into the devil’s vortex where we usually waste time in.
This Multi Billionaire said that every Sunday, he would sit down and work on this system. It would only take a few minutes but it’s incredibly powerful for it keeps you focused on the task at hand.
The great thing about this system is that we tend to know when we are distracted and off track. If we list all our primary 3 goals and we find that we are working off things in our Devil’s Vortex, then we know we are procrastinating and we should focus on our top 3 goals.
I’ve been applying the Sunday Planning System over the past few weeks and noticed that it’s given me incredible clarity on what I should work on.
I’ll report back to you how I go over the next few months. The Sunday Planning System is a powerful system which anyone can use and change their life.
