Being successful is a feeling everyone wants to experience. It is the result of a disciplined schedule and continuous hard work. Therefore, it is not reaching the destination but the journey that decides the fate of your success. One thing that has been observed in most of the successful people is that they wake up early and make the most of their day. By being an early riser they get an edge over others as much before reaching their workplace they are quite active and charged for the day. Interestingly we all can follow these simple but disciplined traits to change our lives for the better. Here are a few things which can be taken into account-
A successful day is the result of a crisp plan. There is an old saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. It is important to design a blueprint well in advance of how the day is going to be. One must prepare a ‘to do list’ and must give weightage accordingly in planning the day. Full efforts must be made to stick to the plan throughout the day. The habit of planning the day leads to reduced time wastage and making the most of the day. There are many apps which help you in planning your day; you may try these instance.
A healthy body is extremely crucial to be successful. Health is not only the wealth but also gives strength to earn wealth. Being physically active in the morning lays the foundation of remaining mentally and physically active and focused throughout the day. A healthy body is the biggest asset. Proper care should be taken to maintain this asset by exercising daily. Even if you want to have some cheat days the tip is to never go for more than 3 days without exercising.
Any loophole in the blanket of positivity leads to negativity slipping in. It is important to be unaffected by the virus of negativity by remembering all the things that happened to be positive for you. Take time out in the morning to be thankful for having this life, for achieving and having enough strength to achieve. Being grateful is a capsule for reducing negativity. You should try daily to meditate and be positive and at the same time not be allowing negativity to enter your inner self. Meditation allows to have an introspection and highlight the things which you are thankful for and these will inculcate positivity in your life. The more you focus on being positive the lesser you attract negativities.
The necessary stuff must be prioritized and should be done in the first part of the day. Things like picking up daily needs stuff, taking the pet for a walk, arranging an old shelf or packing meals for the day etcetera must be a non-spoken priority. These things have to be done at this time of the day because they otherwise take up space in your mind during your professional time. This gives a sense of belongingness and things can easily be sorted during this phase of the day.
A good dose of breakfast is indispensable. Nothing can substitute a healthy morning meal. A balanced breakfast not just gives you energy for the day but also saves you from a lot of discomforts. The breakfast must be rich in nutrients and preferably be the heaviest of all the meals of the day. The breakfast must not be skipped at any cost.
Pursue your passion no matter how busy you are. Giving up on a hobby is a slow poison. Passion is something that keeps you going in high spirits even when your professional life is giving you troubles. Morning is the best to give time to your own self and you must do what you like to have a brighter start of the day. So, wait no more and give some time to gardening or guitar playing or painting or whatever keeps your soul happy.
It is important to brush up the talent every morning. A wasted talent is a painful thing. One needs to sharpen the edges of the skills on a very a regular basis. Skills are the gift of God but practice is what makes you remain skillful. You need to realize the importance of a daily dose of practice to excel in what you do. Read, write or study the things that are related to your career and help your professional life. Even the great cricketer Sachin Tendulkar followed an extremely tight schedule of practice and what he has achieved needs no introduction.
Hope these increase your productivity.
