Day 3 - MyBag
Feeling inspired? Me, too. We've already talked about journaling and habits. Today let's do something more practical.
Today I will talk about:
How to prepare the first Zero Way Tool: the MyBag
Tomorrow: How to acquire new habits (and stick to them)
*no, I'm not going to say Zournal and Zools, that would be silly :)
Let's jump right to it:
The first Zero Way Tool you can prepare for your upcoming journey is probably one of the most easiest:
The Shopping Bag!
In Japan it is generically called "MyBag". You most certainly have one
(or more) lying around the house. Take that bag, fill it it with 2 or 3 more
plastic bags that you have in that magical drawer of yours. Now go put
your keys and/or wallet in it and hang it on the doorknob. Do it NOW,
not tomorrow, not later, not when you go to the toilet :)
The gesture of putting important things in the bag(along with smaller
bags) on the doorknob is a bulletproof method of not forgetting your
MyBag. However, when you come back home, don't forget to put it
back on the doorknob when you finish unpacking.
Things to be careful:
-- A family member (or you?) might find this habit odd or rather
unpleasant. Don't forget to tell them about it.
If you or they don't like this idea, just think of another crucial thing you
do when you get out the door and put it in the way.
Example: over the shoes.
-- Don't leave without taking the bag without the keys/wallet in it! Especially if you have auto-lock!
-- Your pets might find it fun to mess with it, especially cats or dogs who
like to scratch the door.
If you don't have a bag around the house or want a funky upgrade to keep you motivated, see what others have bought/made by themselves. The internet is full of them, you'll be surprised at people's creativity!
Are you ready to write in the journal?
As I leave you in the hopes that you'll be back tomorrow, don't forget to:
Think Cycles. Feel Good. Choose Wise. Act Bold. Aim Big. Believe.
