They are absolutely delusional if a 5 or 6 am wake up call makes me successful…
- Wake up early. After all, Benjamin Franklin did say “early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
- Have a morning routine. Whether it’s working out, making breakfast, or doing the crossword, it’s good to start your day off with structure.
- Plan your entire day. Creating and maintaining a daily schedule will make sure you stay as productive as possible.
- Don’t procrastinate! Waiting to complete tasks can lead to unnecessary stress and cause you to lose focus.
- Make time for personal projects. Work is important but so are the projects that you’re personally passionate about.
- Read and/or watch the news. This will help you remain well-informed so that you can connect with others.
- Make time for physical activity. A healthy mind equals a healthy body and vice versa.
- Make lists. This is the easiest way to stay organised while making sure you’re fulfilling all your responsibilities.
- Focus on the positive. Nothing good can come from dwelling on the negative.
- Review your short-term and long-term goals regularly. By doing this, you can prioritise your goals to become more efficient and productive.
- Have a mentor that you can observe and consult as often as possible. No woman is an island.
- Keep a notebook or journal handy. This is a great way to help you track your progress with projects and goals.
- Be open to feedback and constructive criticism. Looking at your work from a different point of view could help you notice flaws you wouldn’t have otherwise.
- Don’t overthink things. Your gut instinct is probably right, so why fight it?
- Step back and reflect on your day as a whole. It’s important to try different things but also understand what routines and habits work best for you.
