Can You Really Have A Perfect Day? (Not Just In Your Head)

Have you heard about the perfect day exercise?

It’s a simple little thing that allows you to visualise what the ultimate, most delightful, most perfect day would be. And it can bring you one important step closer to being able to actually live that perfect day. More than once, perhaps! I think that the perfect day exercise is one that we really all must take time to do, at least every couple of months. I’m not alone in thinking this – it seems it doesn’t matter which productivity expert you talk to or read, at some point they’ll all mention the perfect day exercise.

It’s really easy.

All you have to do is take a few minutes to write about your dream day. I’m not talking a one-off dream day (although that’s a great exercise as well), but how your typical day will go when you start to really grab hold of your big goals and live the life you dream about.

the power of your intent

Notice how I said ‘how your typical day WILL go’, rather than ‘would or could go’. It’s important to think, talk and write about your goals in the definite tense – assume that these goals are your realities rather than simply a wish that you one day hope to achieve but kind of don’t really believe you can.

I’m going to start you off by writing my perfect day in a moment, but in case you don’t make it all the way through let me give you a couple of tips for writing your own.

1. Write without restrictions. The two most common restrictions would be to hold back in case someone else ever reads what you write, or to hold back because you think what you’d like to put down is either silly or unachievable. This is your PERFECT day, not your ‘okay’ or ‘not bad’ day.

2. Write it EXACTLY as you’d like it to be. Now obviously your dream life would not involve every day being the same as the next so if you really want to get carried away you could write a couple of different scenarios, but I think one is enough to set the tone for how your perfect life will pan out. But the real purpose here is simply to get excited. To get carried away on your own dreams. And – even more than that – to truly visualise; to FEEL what it would be like to live on your own terms. For you that might mean running your own business entirely from home and speaking to nobody for days on end, or it could mean being out and about and constantly on the go. It could mean writing about relaxation and social engagements, or it could be work-based. Or it could be just whatever starts to come out once you get going.

3. Don’t limit yourself! Go with your own flow and try not to overthink what’s coming out. This is a fun exercise designed purely to get your mind whirring with possibilities. What you do with it from there is up to you.

i’ll kick things off

This is my perfect day …

I wake up with the sun, after a deeply refreshing night’s sleep. I’m not really in a great rush so I take the time to lie in bed and let my mind slowly come to life as I consider the smaller details of my loosely planned day. My daughter typically sleeps until 8.30am, and I really value this early morning time for myself. I find that starting the day purely in my own head and company energises me for the hours to come, and means I stay unfrazzled even if plans go astray. It’s a work day for me (I only work 2-3 days a week), and my husband is home until my mother arrives at 9am to look after Alyssa, so I down a couple big glasses of water with some glutamine and primal greens, load up on alpha gpc and carnitine, and then head straight into town to get a jump start on my day.

After a cruisy drive on the freeway I stop at my absolute favourite early morning coffee shop to start the day with a perfect macchiato. I can see that the day is shaping up to be a perfect sunny one, and I love that early morning crisp feel the air has. Over coffee (okay two coffees) I quickly draft out a blog post for Woman Incredible, and fine-tune some content for the Woman Incredible membership site.

I find that the creative work I do in the early mornings seems to be at least 3 or 4 times as efficient as what I might do later in the day, and so I’ve really learned to take this time first. It’s made a huge difference in my life in terms of not constantly worrying about squeezing important writing or projects in between clients or into my personal/family time, and also just plain makes me feel happy to start the day doing something that I love.

After this the city is really starting to come to life.

I spend a very quick few minutes scanning my emails and deleting or archiving the ones I don’t need to answer. Time to ‘officially’ start the day. These days my office is a veerrrrrrry swanky 2-bedroom apartment on Flinders Lane. I share the apartment with a friend who also consults out of there (we’ve each set up a bedroom as our office). I’ve had this dream of having my own city office/apartment ever since I first visited my business mentor at her then new location, which was a similar set-up. The lounge of the apartment is heaven come true for me. We’ve lined pretty much every available wall space with bookshelves (you know those cube ones with all different shaped holes), and have book after book after book interspersed with the occasional piece of art or memento. I even have a pair of Eleiko dumbells on display 🙂 The kitchen is another little piece of heaven, with a fabulous home coffee machine, although I must admit I prefer to go out into the city for my coffee! In the fridge I always have berries, cream, green vegetables and a few other healthy snacks to offer clients (or myself). The set-up of the apartment is really just perfect. I was lucky enough to get a top-notch designer fit-out for rock-bottom prices, as a client of mine runs a post-display-home furniture store. The apartment has views over a decent part of the city, and is in a very pretty art deco building. Nice and quiet ….

your turn!

Hmmm, I was getting right into that. I think I could have kept going for another couple of thousand words,n but I’ll stop and hand over to you. You can see, I hope, from reading mine, just what a powerful exercise this can be. It really starts to come alive, and – as the saying goes – what your mind can perceive, you can achieve. If you can’t do it right now, perhaps you could plan to set aside some time to write your perfect day.

To really perform this exercise in detail can take a good 30 minutes or even more – but man do you feel great afterwards!

Please share either a paragraph of your perfect day in the comments below, or at least the highlights. I’d love to feed on your dreams!

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
