How To Start Your Day

How do your start your day? Want to be productive, creative and energized everyday? Check this success tip out on how to start every day. I learned about this principle from one of the most productive entrepreneurs out there today – Brendon Burchard.

Start every day with a 20 minute stretch. I have found that as I do this I start the day out more grounded and calm. If you have ever watched a dog wake up from a nap that is always the first thing they do – they stretch. Keeping our circulation flowing is beneficial. It will benefit our heart, mind, spirit and energy. This is in addition to your workout. This tip helps me feel more confident.

Monthly Planning Day

One of the greatest time management tools I have discovered is setting aside a business planning day. By working on my business rather than just in my business I am able to be innovative and more productive.

Scheduling a least one hour each week will help you accomplish more than you ever thought possible. It’s amazing how time flashes by. When you are strategic in developing your business and life planning activities you will be successful in achieving your dreams and objectives.

I challenge today to set time this week to work on your business for just 1 hour. You can thank me later. If you want to expand your potential then set aside a 4-hour chunk of time at least once a month. Focused time working on your business will generate outcomes you have only envisioned.
