Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Setting the stage for a successful day doesn't usually happen by accident. Does life happen to you, or do you happen to life? What's in your "Hour of Power?"

by Pete Ferguson

I found a great article shared on the LinkedIn homepage from Fast Companyreminding me of the importance of how to start a day which also gave me some new insight.

I love taking control of my day by waking up early. M,T,F we get up at 4:45 to meet our friends at the gym and have our butts handed to us. Regardless of the day of the week, by 6:15 or so I'm reading, blogging, and studying. By 8:00 I'm headed to the shower and then whatever work may bring.

The idea of creating my ideal day, almost every day, has brought more enjoyment into life than anything else I've ever done. Going in reverse order when I get home adds a nice bonus. During the summer we've gone on walks or ran at the track in the evenings, some nights I can catch up on personal email and blog or read ahead.

Now that school has just started, evenings will take on their own persona of homework, school activities, projects, Scouts, etc.

From the Fast Company article:

Don’t Check Your Email for the First Hour. Seriously. Stop That. “Reading e-mails at home never feels good or productive,” says Tumblr founder David Karp. “If something urgently needs my attention, someone will call or text me.”

Gain Awareness, Be Grateful"[Think] of everything you’re grateful for: in yourself, among your family and friends, in your career, and the like. After that, visualize “everything you want in your life as if you had it today.” ~ Tony Robbins

Do the Big, Shoulder-Sagging Stuff First - Choose your "frog" and eat it firstwhen you arrive at work or are done with the Hour of Power investment piece. According to Mark Twain, "if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, you’ve got it behind you for the rest of the day, and nothing else looks so bad." I hadn't ever thought of getting the worst part of the day behind me first - but I will now.
