I'm always looking for ways to improve myself and my business. I am a proponent of copying others actions if they are successful people. I came across an article this morning that caught my eye and thought I'd share a bit of it with everyone.
Here is a summarization of what successful business owners do first thing in the morning.
First, and I'm horrible at following through with it: EXCERCISE! Doesn't have to be strenuous, just do something for a bit to get your blood pumping. It reduces anxiety, improves decision making, and increases energy levels throughout the day.
Second: Eat a good healthy breakfast.
Third: Take on one of your most daunting tasks, get it done, cross it off, then sit back and take a quick breath and then move on to something a bit easier. It will reduce stress throughout the day and give you confidence to do more throughout the day.
Fourth: Scan your email quickly, answer the important ones (i.e. the ones that are mission critical), and then come back to the others as you get time. But don't forget them, or they will become more important.
Fifth: Take some me time early in the morning. Read a book, listen to an audio book, write a blog...... Something for yourself.
I know this isn't tax related, and for that I apologize. I found it interesting. I'm always striving to make myself better, and if I find something that may be interesting to others, I'm all about helping. I'm interested in what others do. Feel free to add in the comments.
