4 morning rituals guaranteed to make your day more successful

Morning rituals

Let’s be honest, for most of us… mornings suck.

Great, another workday…” is without a doubt a feeling we can all relate to.

And why not? How many mornings do you have to drag yourself out of bed? How many times do you hit the snooze on your alarm? Once? Twice? Not nearly enough times, am I right?

And I’m betting most mornings you’re rushing to get out the door because you wanted to maximize the amount of sleep you got.

Maybe you don’t realize it, but starting your mornings like this makes the rest of your day less productive, and in general, less successful.

Why? Because each morning sets the tone for the entire day. But I’m betting you want your whole day to be a success, right?

Well luckily for you, you can make your mornings not only better, but more desirable as well.

The morning rush is your morning habit

Now be honest, how many of you set your alarm to go off as late as possible so you can maximize your sleep? Probably a lot of you, and that’s the problem.

Your mornings are a hectic rush, and that’s no way to start your day off.

You aren’t armed with early wake-up skills

People already dread waking up in the morning, but waking up even earlier? No thank you. People don’t want to do that, even the idea of it can make people feel annoyed.

And this is completely understandable, which makes the problem even more prominent.

The 5 missing habits to your productive success

What if I told you that you might be sabotaging your productivity levels?

Would that surprise you? Well the truth is several of us are missing key habits that allow us to really tune into a productive work mode.

Don’t believe me?

You should. After all, it’s your natural work habits that prevent you from recognizing this fact, and it’s because you automatically bypass the good habits without realizing it.

But hey, that’s just the way habits work.

We don’t always realize there are better options till somebody points them out, so even when we think we’re being productive, it’s possible we’re only working half-optimally; and it’s because we don’t realize we’re missing essential habits that can drastically improve our productivity levels.

But we can fix this problem, and all it takes is a little awareness of what habits you’re missing.

5 Essential mindsets for mastering productivity

  • Share on Tumblr

 

Ever wonder how a little tweak to your mindset can lead to remarkable productivity levels?

You might be surprised at how much things can change when you’re in the right state of mind, and sometimes it’s the difference between a productive day and a day spent watching television.

 

Having a productive mindset

 

Have you ever sat down to work but felt restricted by your mindset? When I say mindset, I mean thoughts like these:

  • I didn’t do great work yesterday, so won’t today be just like it?
  • I can already tell that the work is going to be tough/boring…
  • I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by all this…
  • I can never get my work just perfect, so what’s the point..?

 

Can you relate to those thoughts in some way? We all can, and it’s because no matter what kind of career you have, no matter how much you love what you do, some days will be harder than the rest.

(And for people who don’t love or even like what they do, the problem is far worse).

The ability to work through these tough spots is what makes a person productive (and in general, successful).

This makes it extremely important to be able to dive into a work session with the right mindset, so you aren’t derailed by a hard bump in the road.

And luckily for you, that’s what you’ll learn how to do here.

3 Tips for engaging flow and improving productivity

Does this scenario seem familiar?

 

You sit at your desk, ready to do some work. You try and get focused for the task at hand, knowing that it’s due in the next few days. You boot up the computer and mouse over to “Word (or Excel, etc.)” and try to forcefully create a document.

But nothing comes.

 

The cursor blinks away, yet you can’t get any words or numbers on the screen, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

What about this slightly different scenario:

Let’s say do get something written down, maybe a couple hundred words and you feel good about it. And then all of a sudden you get a text, it’s your good friend asking to hang out after work. You quickly reply and then get back to work.

But you can’t get back to work because you’ve already lost your momentum, you’ve lost your flow.

Does this seem familiar? Is starting your work and/or staying there a problem for you?

It doesn’t have to be, you can get in the state that lets the work flow from you effortlessly.

Let me show you how.
