Successful people have certain common routines and habits that they follow daily. Today’s infographic shares 16 common things that successful people do at the start of every workday:
My favorite ones are saying no (#11), helping others (#9), stretching and moving around (#5), and being grateful (#16). Just saying no has helped me regain hundreds of hours that I’ve been able to devote to my Q2 activities. Helping others energizes me — even when I’m very busy, I try to find a time pocket to do a kind deed for someone, including giving a simple email reply with advice — and that perks me up after that. Stretching is super important — given that my work is all digital, I take frequent breaks and walk around as much as I can during my non-work hours. And gratitude allows me to constantly remember how lucky I am to have what I have and appreciate the good things in life.
