10 Mar 2015
Ever imagined how famous entrepreneurs, successfully manage to build huge empires out of their business and also manage it with ease? Well if so, then you will be quite astonished to hear that it’s their daily routine that makes the difference.
After interviewing some of the top business men in the country, I learned that these men certainly did not receive success, wrapped beautifully in a box. But they actually had to work day and night to earn their reputable positions.
One such example is of the founder of twitter and CEO Square, Jack Dorsey. This man is known to have worked for 16 hours per day, after which he was able to establish two businesses at a time, which now are flourishing. 16 hours of work per day, didn’t mean he over-burdened himself, but instead he tried to manage everything, which as we see, has worked quite well for him. So would it for you! The recipe for this much needed success, is some extra effort in managing your routine, mixed in with a bit of patience and topped off with the will to rise and shine. That is it!
There are lot of ways how one can manage their daily routine, which has proven to be not only healthy for your mind and body, but also reflects a good deal on your work. Stated below are few ways how you can manage your time and move towards a successful lifestyle.
The first and foremost step would be to get rid of the snooze button and start your day as early as possible. This may mean waking up early and doing some yoga or pampering yourself with a nice heavy breakfast. Yes you read it right! Waking up early doesn’t mean starting work early. Studies suggest an early to rise person is more fresh and vigilant the whole day, when compared to one who wakes up late.
Secondly, it has been seen that famous entrepreneurs, such as Benjamin Franklin suggest to start the day with a bit of planning. Apart from rising early and doing the usual chores, it is suggested, to take a few minutes out and plan what needs to be done for today.
Thirdly, giving individual attention to each and every department at work makes it easier to manage work. This means dedicating days for specific works, such as finance accounts to be checked on Mondays, meeting with the managers to be done each Tuesday, reaching out to clients every Wednesday and so on. This helps keep you focused and make better decisions.
Apart from that, as per my own experience, I would suggest each of the struggling entrepreneurs, to take frequent time outs, in order to keep your sanity intact, and not get succumbed under the intense pressure of work, which is usually driven by the amount of competition in the market. Also it is not necessary that each and every day will go as planned, there will be urgencies that you will have to deal at the moment, and that is part of the business.
So as conclusion you should be ready to face any challenge upfront and trust me, you make your path upward. Goodluck!
