What do you love about being an entrepreneur?
If you are like most, your answer is a simple:
All of the above!
I am with you! That’s why sometimes it is so difficult to convince entrepreneurs that one of the quickest ways to success is to establish a routine—at least for the first hour of their day. I have lost count how many times I have seen this simple change radically change the life and success curve of a business owner.
I recently heard Tim Ferris, author of The Four Hour Work Week talk about his success habits. He starts each day with the same exact same ritual. He knows that if he can get through it, he’ll be successful.
I too, have a daily ritual or routine that I follow nearly exactly each and every day. I get up at the same time, drink my first cup of water at the same time, do my Planning & Solitude, work out, and spend time with my family all before heading to the office. Unless I’m travelling, I follow this ritual every day, so that every day I’ve accomplished a ton before I even get to the office and my mind can be active since I don’t have to think about what I am doing. It’s muscle memory now.
Here’s the big secret, if you want even more freedom, change and flexibility, it is committing to consistency and discipline that will get you there faster.
So do you think you could commit to a daily ritual, or have you already? What are your results?
