Successful People Do These 6 Things Before 9am

Posted on: August 8, 2018
Tags: Small business tips

What do successful people do differently? For one thing, they typically wake up very early. Long before they hit the office, they’ve been up and active, performing tasks that will set them up for success throughout the day.

Below are 6 things successful people do before 9 am, and how you can incorporate them into your routine.

1. Get physical

You’ve probably heard the phrase “healthy body, healthy mind.” It’s important to take care of yourself physically. For most people, early in the day is the best time to exercise, before the responsibilities of the day kick in. Whether it’s a brisk walk with your dog, an early run or a bike ride, get your body moving. Not only will it make you feel good, but studies have shown that exercise can improve brain function.

2. Eat something

If you’re a busy person, chances are that eating a healthy breakfast is the last thing on your mind. But in terms of the day’s productivity, skipping breakfast can be a huge mistake. If you want to be thinking and working at your best, make time to eat a balanced meal in the morning.

3. Take care of necessary tasks.

Picking up the dry cleaning. Walking the dog. Packing school lunches. Everyone has things that they have to do. To get a leg up on the day, get these things out of the way early. When you wake up early, you have time to attend to these tasks that can take up valuable mind space during the workday. If you get them out of the way, then you can focus solely on work, and your day will be far more productive. 

4. Cross off the most annoying item on your to-do list. 

Everyone procrastinates on one thing or another. Start the day right and get at least one of those hard to tackle tasks off of your to-do list. In the morning, you’re at your most energized and refreshed, and best prepared to take on a difficult task or project. You’ll be amazed at how much lighter it makes you feel for the rest of the day. Not only will you have the sense of accomplishment at having completed that task, but it won’t be looming ahead causing stress all day.

5. Learn something new

To be truly successful in the long run, you must make a lifelong commitment to learning. There is never a point at which you’ve learned “enough”. Learning keeps the mind elastic and allows you to remain nimble in your work. 

Each morning make a point of spending time learning something new (ie read the newspaper, learn a new skill, listen to a relevant podcast, study a new sector of your business). There are so many ways to continue educating yourself, and you never know what might give you your next great idea.
