The 90 Minute Rule to Becoming a Top Dog

Mind: Meditate & Read

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” – Gautam Buddha

Begin your day by keeping aside atleast 10–15 minutes to meditate. Personally, I found focusing my mind one of the hardest undertakings in life. Motion implies progress to many people.

Body: Excercise

I have hit the gym for 30 minutes almost 200 out of 365 days. For me, it has always been a mental challenge just stepping into the gym.

Soul: Reflect

I looked for God. I went to a temple and I didn’t find him there. Then I went to a church and I didn’t find him there. The I went to a mosque and I didn’t find him there. Then finally I looked in my heart and there he was.

- Jalaluddin Rumi

Faith is very subjective. Therefore, utilize any method you feel is your own. It could be listening to Sufi music, painting or learning to play the guitar, a new language or anything that allows you to focus on a higher purpose.

To Sum Up

By no means have I mastered the habits I set out to master but I have come far and am better than I used to be. It may not come as a surprise to most but the amount of effort it takes to get up after losing a habit will end up surprising many. Neither do I hold a patent to the 90 minute rule nor do I have any scientific evidence to prove my claim. I have seen the impact of being obstinate about good habits and want to encourage you to be obstinate as well.
