No matter how busy you are, as an entrepreneur, there are a few things you should do every day. These five habits are a daily ritual for millionaires around the world. Here’s how you can incorporate them into your daily routine…
1. Evaluate your goals
Successful people reconsider their goals every morning so that they remain focused and can align their daily tasks with their goals. Write down your goals first, so that it is clear what you actually want to achieve.
Just looking at your goals once a week or month is not enough. Nowadays, there are distractions all around you, so you will quickly lose focus. It is a good habit to write down your daily tasks in your agenda and evaluate them regularly. Ask yourself, “Does this task bring me closer to my goal?” If not, why do you do it?
2. First, complete your MIT
MIT stands for your Most Important Task. This task has the most impact and can bring you a lot closer to your goals. This task can change depending on the stage of development you or your company are in.
The most important thing is that you give the MIT the highest priority in the morning, you never know what will distract you for the rest of the day. It also keeps you productive, because after completing your MIT, you will feel satisfied knowing that you have the most important task of the day behind you.
3. Keep learning
Learning is not a voluntary choice if you want to continue to grow throughout your life. You wouldn’t stay in the same phase for the next 10 years, would you?
Learning is more than just reading books. Many millionaires gain extra knowledge by listening to audio books at high speed so that they can make efficient use of their travel time. No wonder audio books have become so popular in recent years.
Yet this is not just about book knowledge. Be creative with the way you learn. Ideally, spend at least 60 minutes a day broadening your horizons so that your skills and knowledge grow.
4. Physical well-being
If you want to perform at a high level for a long time, you have to take good care of your body. The last thing you want is for your body to let you down. Be careful with your nutrition and make sure you are active all day to keep your energy up to date.
One of the best ways to stay energetic all day is to jump around, do some jumping jacks or a few push-ups when you start to get tired.
Training two or three times a week is good, but it’s not so much about sports. Be active every day, take a walk, ride a bike and take the stairs.
5. Check your finances
You’ve read that right, check your bank account every day. Is it not something that makes you happy? Then maybe it’s time to do something about it. Evaluating your finances every day has a similar effect to looking at your goals. By looking at your finances every day, you stay focused on growth and are aware of the good times and the bad times.
You can behave successfully and pretend your business is running great, but your bank account never lies. So give yourself a reality check every day, so you know what works and what doesn’t.
Don’t forget to focus on your daily goals, perform your most important task, learn something new, take good care of yourself and evaluate your finances to make sure you are making progress every day and be one step closer to your ultimate goals.
