What Successful People Do Before Breakfast
There are 168 hours in a week and we all experience the same 168 hours, but sometimes it feels like there are some people who have more time on their hands than the rest of us. How can these people balance work, family, and their hobbies without extra hours on the clock?
The secret isn’t necessarily how they balance their day, but what they do before their day even gets started. Successful icons including Steve Jobs and his successor Tim Cook are known for starting their days incredibly early.
With the National Sleep Foundation showing that most American professionals are out of bed by 5:59 am on a typical weekday, this means that there’s a 2-3 hour gap between waking and when the workday begins. The things you do during this gap will greatly impact the way the rest of your day unfolds.
1. Successful people use their mornings in at least one of three ways:
– To nurture themselves
– To nurture their careers
– To nurture their relationships
Before even eating breakfast, it’s important to get your day off to the right start. The reason the morning is such a great time to accomplish your goals is because that time will almost never be interrupted.
