10 Morning Rituals of Successful Entrepreneurs [Infographic]

Have you ever wondered what do the most successful entrepreneurs such as Mark Zuckerberg and Richard Branson do in the morning?

The Sleep Matters Club powered by Dreams has put together an infographic to show you just that. From the infographic, you will notice that the number one thing that these successful entrepreneurs have in common is to wake up early. More than half of them wake up before six every morning. Waking up early gives them more time to do what they want each day and that is a critical part to their success.

Another interesting thing to note about their morning rituals is that they take good care of themselves first thing in the morning. Most of them don’t jump straight into work. Instead, they do tasks that serve their personal needs first such as exercising, reading, mediating and enjoying a good, hearty breakfast. Even though these tasks aren’t work-related, they know that they are equally important and understand the value they bring to their personal success. Furthermore, they know that they are most likely going to neglect these tasks during the day, so they do them first. Getting these tasks out of their way allows them to focus a 100% on their work during the day.

Some of you believe that you can’t wake up early. But the truth is waking up early is never about self-discipline and your battle with your alarm clock. It’s about sleeping early. If you allow yourself to sleep early, you would naturally wake up early in the morning. Your body knows when it has enough rest and when to wake up.

Being successful is about making decisions with your life. You will be successful when you decide to be successful. And you will wake up early when you decide to wake up early. Make that decision to wake up early today and take a big step towards your success.

    How to Use Travel Time Effectively

    How to Use Travel Time Effectively

    Most of us associate travel and time with what we’re going to do one we get to our destination. Planning and mapping out what to do once you arrive can certainly make for a more pleasurable vacation, but there are things you can do while you are on your way that can make it even better.

    Sure, you can plan for the things you’re going to do on your vacation while you are travelling en route – but what about making use of that time for other things that you don’t usually do when you’re at home? You don’t need to have your gadgets with you to do it, and you can really connect with yourself if you take the time to manage your life while heading towards your vacation destination.

    Here are some great tips to help you with your time management while you travel, some of which are more conventional than others. Nonetheless, you can find out what works best for you and apply them accordingly depending on when and how you are travelling.

    1. Take Your Time Getting There

    As I write this, I’m on a flight to San Francisco. Flying is the fastest way to get from place to place, and for many people it’s really the only way to travel.

    But I’ve often taken the train or ferry on trips so that I have extra time without distraction to get more done. I’m not worrying about navigation or lack of space to do what I want to do. Instead I’m able to focus on getting stuff done during the time I’ve got without feeling rushed. For example, when I took the train from Vancouver to Portland, it was an eight hour trip and I managed to get a ton of writing done and closed a lot of open loops. It also was less expensive than flying, which was a bonus.

    Sometimes taking the long way to get somewhere on vacation can be the best thing for you to get somewhere with your life.

    2. Go Gadget-Free

    This is going to be a tough one for a lot of you. But why do you need to bring your gadgets with you when you go on vacation? It isn’t be a bad idea to leave all but one of them behind, and only pull out that one when you absolutely need to do so. In some countries, you’d be wise to be discreet with them anyway since flaunting them in front of those that are less fortunate than you isn’t a good practice. While it may not seem like flaunting to you, in different cultures it can definitely come across that way.

    If you can’t go gadget-free, then at least go Internet-free. If you use a task management app that requires syncing across your multiple devices to be effective, remember that if you only have the one device with you then it can be the “master device” for the time being and will store your data locally anyway. Just sync up when you get home.

    3. Reflect and Prepare

    Finally, going on any sort of excursion gives you the perfect opportunity to reflect on where you’ve been. The fact you have removed yourself from where you usually are can give you a perspective that you simply can’t get when you’re at home. You may want to journal your thoughts during this time – and by taking more time to get to your destination you’ll have more time to dig deeper into it.

    After a period of reflection – however long that happens to be – you can then begin to not only prepare for the rest of your travels, you can prepare for the rest of what happens afterward. The reflection period is important, though. You need to really know where you’ve been in order to properly look at where you want to be. Time away from things gives you that chance.

    Conclusion

    Traveling isn’t always about where you’re going and how quickly you can get there. In fact, it’s rarely about that at all.

    More often it’s where you’re at in your head that will dictate how much you benefit from traveling. So don’t just go somewhere fast. Instead, take your time on the way there and take the time to connect with not only where you are but who are while you’re there.

    If you do that, you’ll have a better chance to be who you want to be when you leave.
