Transcripts

Speaker:

Welcome back to The becoming the big knee podcast. I'm your host

Speaker:

Djemilah Birnie and you are tuning into minute madness, a

Speaker:

little dose of epicness delivered in five minutes or

Speaker:

less.

Speaker:

What What's up, you guys, it's Djemilah Birnie here and today I

Speaker:

wanted to talk to you about the details and the importance of

Speaker:

the little things. Now, I know that you have all heard that how

Speaker:

you do one thing is how you do everything right? Well, I want

Speaker:

to kind of expand on that a little bit more. So a lot of

Speaker:

times in our lives, we kind of let those little things slide,

Speaker:

let's think of like the small things like making your bed or

Speaker:

doing your dishes every night, or, you know, put finishing your

Speaker:

load of laundry, starting the laundry, doing the laundry, and

Speaker:

then finishing the load and putting it away, right. So where

Speaker:

the discipline where you are really training your brain to be

Speaker:

better comes in all of those little things that might feel

Speaker:

insignificant, um, in to that you are completing, because it

Speaker:

shows that you are focusing on those little things, and you

Speaker:

have that discipline. So I have a list of the things that I have

Speaker:

to do

Speaker:

every day. So before I go to bed, I have to do all of the

Speaker:

dishes, I have to have a clean sink, that is my completion of

Speaker:

the day. So I'm normally really exhausted when I'm doing this

Speaker:

task. And even if there is like just one or two dishes in the

Speaker:

sink, I could easily just be like, Oh, it's you know, it's

Speaker:

fine. I can just do it in the morning while I'm making

Speaker:

breakfast. Because when I do this final no dish saint kind of

Speaker:

completion of my day, is after I've already been working all

Speaker:

day, I've been up since five in the morning. And I typically do

Speaker:

two workout today. And my second workout I do at nighttime around

Speaker:

nine. So I finished that workout around 10. So I am absolutely

Speaker:

exhausted by the time I get up to go to bed. And when I come in

Speaker:

from that workout, I'm so tired. And all I want to do is just lay

Speaker:

down. But I make sure to do those dishes, whether there are

Speaker:

just is just one dish, or whether there's an entire sink

Speaker:

full of dishes, I make sure to have that sink clean, because

Speaker:

that is an indication for me that my day is complete. That is

Speaker:

kind of my little little task of the day that shows me all right,

Speaker:

your day is done. And you may now go to bed and start getting

Speaker:

ready for bed. And what that does is it helps build that

Speaker:

mental fortitude, it helps build that mental toughness that even

Speaker:

when you are so tired, you're still focused on those little

Speaker:

details, you will still go that extra mile and do the little

Speaker:

things because over time, the little things compound into big

Speaker:

things, little by little a little becomes a lot, right. So

Speaker:

if these little tiny things every single day over and over

Speaker:

again, when we do them, they become a lot. And what this is

Speaker:

doing is training your brain to complete those little details

Speaker:

that may seem or feel insignificant in the moment, but

Speaker:

actually have a great impact over time. So the other thing is

Speaker:

like making the bed so I always make my bed in the morning that

Speaker:

is like that's me completing that cycle of sleeping like my

Speaker:

sleep ends when I make the bed. And then that's triggering me to

Speaker:

go into the day to start my daily activities. And it's just

Speaker:

a very small thing that only takes a couple of moments. Yet

Speaker:

it takes a lot of discipline, because I could easily just like

Speaker:

it's not that important, but it is because when we see it, the

Speaker:

effect that that has on our subconscious mind of having a

Speaker:

clean space of having a made bed of having a clean sink is a lot

Speaker:

Okay, as opposed to seeing that mess. And our makes our brain

Speaker:

feel more behind which is kind of a weird concept because it's

Speaker:

such a small thing, but I'm telling you, it works. It really

Speaker:

really does work. So remember, little by little, a little

Speaker:

becomes a lot those little details, those little things

Speaker:

that might seem insignificant, might just be the most

Speaker:

significant things.

Speaker:

getting to where you want to go and training your brain to

Speaker:

become and do the hard things that will get you to where you

Speaker:

want to go.
