“Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.”
― Niccolò Machiavelli, “The Prince”
Successful people have successful habits. There’s no one size fits all list, but some seem almost universal. Here are five.
Meditate and pray
Get your mind in the right place. If you struggle to start, try spending five minutes in gratitude for the blessings and opportunities in your life.
If your body is off, your work will be off. Get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. If you’re stressed or unfocused, exercise can push you back on track. If you had a bad day, channel your frustration into a good day in the workout room.
Multitasking leads to multi-headaches. Constant task switching destroys focus and momentum. Batching your tasks is an instant level-up in life.
Good questions lead to good answers, and good answers lead to knowledge and understanding.
When you understand there are no excuses, you get up and get going. You plan for contingencies, mitigate risks, and execute. You keep moving forward.
