Never Hit The Snooze Button

Never Hit The Snooze Button

Sleeping longer is probably one of the greatest desires you had back when you were working for a big corporation. But when you hit the snooze button you are subconsciously telling your big goals and dreams that they don’t matter. That leads to a lack of urgency in life, lower productivity, and frustration by the end of the day.

Never Write Your To-Do List

Never Write Your To-Do List

The truth is that if you’re setting your to do-list first thing in the morning, you’re already too late!

You need to know your number one priority the night before, and have a plan in place to start working on it immediately. That’s how the most successful people in the world, from the greatest writers of today (like J.K. Rowling and Stephen King) to the most successful artists in history, control their mornings.

Don't Complain

If you start your day by complaining about your job, partner, family, or whatsoever, you’ll take that negative mood with you for at least a few hours, sometimes even for the entire day.

Don't Use Social Media

Don't Use Social Media

Wanting to be up to date with world news is okay, but you really don’t need to do it first thing in the morning.

If you’re being bombarded with news, updates, and negativity first thing in the morning, you’ll take that negative energy with you for the entire day.

Mindlessly surfing the internet can cost you more time and energy than you might realize.
