1. Starting the day right
I always roll out of bed and go straight to exercise, (I’m back training Muay Thai) pressing the snooze button is a big no-no because it sets the tone of the day wrong if I do not follow a routine, my day falls apart. Many people swear making the bed sets the tone right for the day.
Some people choose meditation, yoga, reading, learning but I find exercise works best for me and gives me energy for the rest of the day.
My optimum time is around 5.30 or 6 am and I never considered myself a morning person, I changed that when I wanted to do better at everything. There are plenty of late risers that do well though!
2. Managing time
Giving yourself 1-2 hours per task, limiting your time for unproductive things and increasing your time for the most important goals. But allow time between meetings for the unexpected, I try to leave days free just in case I have a problem with my businesses.
3. They are aware of procrastination and try to fight it
- you can avoid this by breaking projects down into small daily tasks, break everything into smaller steps
- list the things you should limit, social media (my biggest problem) and TV for many others
- Use journals/diaries and planners to help
4. They complete jobs
- Hiring a personal assistant or a virtual assistant
- set deadlines
5. Work smarter
- remember the Pareto rule
- practise deep work sessions
