[The Hugh Jackman Method]


Hugh Jackman is an award-winning actor and all-around icon.

On the Tim Ferriss Show, he revealed his brutally-effective morning practice to design the perfect day.

The best part?

It only takes 2 minutes.

Here’s the technique:


Step 1.

When you wake up, spend a few moments visualizing the end of your day.

Imagine that you’re getting back in bed at night… and everything went perfectly.

What did you do? How did you feel? What went even better than expected?

Get specific.

Step 2.

Now write a text describing exactly what happened.

Yep, in the past tense.

Something like:

“I hit a new deadlift PR in the gym, delivered a strong presentation at work (and got positive feedback from my manager), and went out to dinner with a friend that I feel way closer to now.”

Step 3.

Send that text to someone who will hold you accountable.

At the end of the day, re-read what you wrote and report back to that person how accurate your text was.

It won’t always be spot on.

But your day will go better than if you didn’t visualize it at all.


When you’re able to picture your day going well (in extremely vivid detail),

you’ll make micro-decisions throughout the day that guide you to that outcome.

They might even be subconscious.

(e.g., the things you say, the last-minute risks you decide to take, the confidence you have walking into a room…)

“Your thoughts have consequences so great that they create your reality.” —Dr. Joe Dispenza

Whether you believe your day will go well (or believe it will go poorly), you’re right.

Try it out. Let me know how it goes.

(And I highly recommend listening to the full podcast episode. Hugh is such a delight.)
