What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day

Find the formula to making the most out of your work day in Fastcompany.com’s article, What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day. If you are anything like the average person, your work day probably begins with you hopping out of bed, taking a shower and getting dressed for work, pretty standard stuff. If time allows, you may even grab a coffee or a bite to eat on your way into the office. Now let’s be honest, who wants to be average? While all of the aforementioned items are important, perhaps you could take the time to add one or two of the recommended tasks from this list suggested to help make each day more productive for you. Our personal favorite is setting up an “Hour of Power,” “30 Minutes to Thrive,” or even “Fifteen Minutes to Fulfillment,” all recommended by self-help guru, Tony Robbins. Each of these combine light exercise, motivational incantations and giving yourself 10 minutes to reflect on all you are grateful for. You then complete this time by visualizing “everything you want in your life as if you had it today.” If the experts are correct, and you are devoted enough to include these tasks in the first first hour of your day, you may just find yourself becoming more and more successful!
