“Make each day your masterpiece.” (John Wooden)
A masterpiece life is the compounded effect of your masterpiece days.
Make each hour your masterpiece.
A masterpiece day is the compounded effect of 16 precious hours.
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“How can I make the most of every hour of every day?”
“Isn’t it tedious?”
“Depends how important it is for you. Think of it as a form of deliberate practice.”
“What is worth tracking?”
“The details are for you to play with. Experiment.
I currently track two essential aspects of bodymind training: meditation and movement. My goal is is to meditate and move during every hour of every day.”
“How do you track them?”
“I use pencil and paper. The day before, I write every hour of the day with a faint pencil stroke – it’s barely visible.
Whenever I track an hour, I write over the corresponding number with a hard stroke, and I do a micro-meditation.
I have a simple notation system for tracking meditation and movement.
A pencil dot marks a micro-meditation.
A larger dot marks a 5+ minute meditation.
A faint circle (around the dot) marks a small movement snack.
A hard circle marks a consistent movement snack.”
