What’s your daily highlight?

Ie. What’s the one thing that you want to get done today, and then for tomorrow, and the day after? 

What’s the one thing, that if you checked it off your to-do list, you’d be fulfilled regardless if you haven’t finished the others? 

I heard about daily highlights through Ali Abdaal’s video called ’15 lessons that improved my life’ – inspired by ‘Make Time’ by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky. 

First: Pick one task (daily highlight) that you’ll be focusing on that day. To figure out what task to pick, choose something:

  • urgent (that you’ve been procrastinating on)
  • something fulfilling (based on your own values)
  • something you’ve got a bit of resistance doing but you know if you did it, you’d be proud of yourself for. 

If you’re stuck, unfortunately I don’t know what these tasks are for you, but TOP TIP:

List out all your to-do’s, then from your to do’s pick your non negotiables, then from those, pick the one you’d be most satisfied to complete. 

e.g Yesterday I had a a few things under ‘MUST DO’s’ 

but I came up with something completely different for my daily highlight. Something that fulfilled my values for connection and playfulness/fun.  

Even though I ended up doing half of the lesson, reading 1 paragraph of chapter 5 and doing my singing practice, I STILL FELT FULFILLED! 

So especially if you need more clarity and meaningfulness in your day, give this a try and let me know what you think!
