Start your day like a successful man!
Every person sooner or later collides with routine and boredom with their own life. Are you sure I have made good life choices? Is the career path chosen by me a good direction? You are not the only one faced with such dilemmas! What's more, even a successful man who looks at us from book covers or from our computer monitors has stumbled more than once before taking a straight path. Unfortunately, there are no step-by-step guides on how to change your own life.
However, you can use the advice of successful people who are happy to reveal their little secrets for productive time. We warn you! People who like to sleep long, are unlikely to like this advice.
Appreciate what you have!
Tony Robbins, a famous life counselor, advises you to be thankful for what you have - and that's how to start your day. Try to spend about 15 minutes each morning thinking about all the good things that have happened to you in your life and realizing how thankful you are for them. This is to help you understand what is really important to you in life and what you expect from your future. Such a positive attitude is supposed to help you succeed.
To keep a good mood and pass it on, be sure to be sympathetic to your colleagues, says Todd Smith, author of Little things matter. Ignoring each other disrupts the work of the team and has a negative impact on morale. Most people are unaware of the importance of simply smiling at the other person or wishing each other a good day.
Check your e-mail after coming to the office
David Karp, the founder of Tumblr, is against any planning or scheduling. Therefore, he never checks the company email at home. He does it as soon as he comes to work. This allows him to quickly prioritize tasks for the day. This opinion is shared by the CEO of Apple - but he checks his e-mails every day at 4.30. A little later, at 6.00, the director of Starbucks does it - however, it precedes an hour-long bike ride.
Eat a frog for breakfast
Mark Twain used to say, "Eat a live frog every morning, and in the course of the day nothing worse will happen to you." There is a method in this madness, so it is worth considering introducing the principle of eating a frog to the day at work. What could this metaphorical frog be? The most difficult task, the most difficult project or an unpleasant conversation with the team. Start the day with the least pleasant activities, then it only gets better!
Laura Vanderkam, the author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, also shares this opinion.According to her, the most important e-mails and writing down ideas should be done in the morning - then the fewest things distract us and the willpower works best.
Enjoy your routine
Many people do their best to combat the daily routine. It turns out, however, that she can be your ally! Her fans include many writers, including Haruki Murakami and John Grisham. They support it with many arguments - routine teaches people self-discipline and keeps them in check. Grisham recalls that while he was still working as a lawyer, he got up at 5 am every day and by 5.30 he must have had at least a few sentences written. Ultimately, he had to write a page a day - whether it took 10 minutes or 2 hours.
As a successful person, listen and learn
Man learns all his life - do not forget about it as a manager or manager! The CEO of AOL repeats this, and he spends much of his work talking to colleagues. In addition to constantly expanding your knowledge, listening has more positives - it builds an atmosphere of unity and trust in the workplace.
Take care of your body and soul
Yoga or Pilates are exercises that greatly affect the flexibility of the body and relax the soul. Finally, you cannot forget about it! If you have a stressful day ahead of you, difficult decisions or meetings - devote a dozen or so minutes to exercises in the morning. Mateusz Grzesiak, who conducts personal development training all over the world, starts his day this way. He also shares the opinion that people who wake up early in the morning achieve more - that's why he starts each day at 7am at the latest with a yoga session. Running or cycling is also a good idea.
Complete your tasks
This advice applies to mornings more than you think. In fact, you work all day to determine what your evening, night and morning will be like. Try to arrange your work in such a way that you finish all tasks before leaving work. Thanks to this, you will not worry about unfinished projects that will keep you awake at night and which will make you stressed out in the morning. Remember that each day should be a fresh start for your mind and body.
As you can see, starting the day like a successful person is not that complicated. All you need is good time organization, facing the most difficult tasks at the beginning of work and - which many people forget - taking care of yourself.
