Everyone is looking for that magic formula that guarantees success. While it’s likely to look slightly different for everyone, the most successful people do tend to exhibit similar patterns.
Let’s face it, while you might begin your business firing on all cylinders, in time, it’s your ability to consistently progress just that little bit more each day, that ultimately determines your success. This list of 5 things successful entrepreneurs do each day, will set you on the right path.
Successful entrepreneurs start fresh
“The difference between the real winners is how long they take to feel sorry for themselves. My winners feel it… but they come back up and say ‘hit me again.’” – Barbara Corcoran
Mistakes, failures, lessons… whatever you want to call them, they happen in business. Stewing over them and failing to move on isn’t going to get you anywhere. Each night, sit with yourself, reflect on the day, be grateful for whatever has happened and take what you need to from it and let go of everything else. This ensures that you bounce out of bed the next morning, ready to tackle whatever the day brings head on.
We each have 24 hours in the day so that golden excuse that people don’t have time to exercise, is just that: an excuse. Life is all about priorities. Not only will moving your body help to keep you healthy, it sees the release of chemicals called endorphins that help to keep you positive.
Exercise doesn’t have to mean gym every day – find an exercise you enjoy so that you look forward to it and don’t look for any excuse to skip it. Mix it up too so that you keep your body guessing and you don’t tire of the same old routine.
They’ll also plan their day, the night before
While ‘winging it’ in business might work for a while, it will only get you so far. Each evening, plan out your day and create your to-do list for the next day. That doesn’t mean you have to complete your to-do list, it just means that you’re heading into tomorrow with a game plan. Of course, this needs to be flexible so that if something urgent pops up, you can sort it out. You’ll find that planning ahead equates to you being more focused and less stress because you’re prepared.
Successful entrepreneurs schedule in time to do nothing
Yes, you read that correctly. As humans, we are not robots – we can’t expect our bodies and minds to be constantly on the go and performing at 100% all the time, without fail. Scheduling nothing time gives you the headspace and room you need to get those creative juices flowing.
When you’re constantly doing and ticking things off your to-do list, you’re not reflecting and thinking about your long-term strategy or perhaps even doing that one small, simple task more efficiently. Start by blocking out 10 minutes in your day here and there and see how you go.
They get enough sleep on most nights
As above, humans are not robots. That means that you need to give yourself an adequate amount of sleep so that you’re rested, recovered and mentally prepared for what’s ahead. Sure, how much sleep you need tends to vary from vary to person but you’re likely to find that you’ll be sharper and more focused after 8 hours of sleep when compared with a night where you’ve squeezed in 4 or 5 hours. Remember, a healthy mind and body will ensure a healthier business in the long-run.
At the end of the day, everyone is different. We’ve seen entrepreneurs who swear by early starts and others who are very much night owls. But we’re all human and that means that certain things such as getting enough sleep and treating our bodies correctly, only increases our chances of achieving both business and life success.
