You wonder how these successful people keep focused all day long and achieve such successes. I’m too when I’m stumbled upon one of those highly successful people. I’m asking what they might be doing to keep themselves productive and focused during the day to achieve more complicated tasks.
Some of those figures, I’m inspired by, quit their corporate jobs years ago and they are just working from home. Considering that few of them are married and having kids, I’m always asking how they manage to keep being productive and at the same time spend time with family and kids.
These were all question marks for me until I figured out few brilliant techniques to achieve better goals on faster base while working from home.
The key to success in any career is to do what you love because if you don’t like what you’re doing you won’t be able to achieve any goals or successes even if you spent hundreds of hours working on it.
It’s simply because you don’t like it, No Magic! In this article let me walk you through 6 daily habits highly successful people used to do.
1. Define a Daydream:
Put your goal in mind and turn it into a daydream. For example; If you’re looking forward to making 10K per month via your blog, Put this daydream in front of you all day long. You may need to write it up on the wall in your home office or you may put it as your computer’s background to see it every morning and all day long.
This way you’re training your brain to think bigger. Every time you will see this target goal written on the wall or on the computer’s background, You trigger your brain centers to find new opportunities and explore different ways to achieve your target goal.
It’s working very good for the Olympic players. They set a target goal, and they keep it in front of their eyes all day long every day during their practices. Triggering the brain in such way will help you achieve your goals on a faster base with higher productivity rate.
Train your brain to think bigger, better, and faster!
2. Communicate with Nature:
Upon studies, the green colour is a vital one for entrepreneurs and achievers. One more thing will keep your productivity rate high is to communicate with nature. You don’t have to do so for long hours However, you may need to spend few minutes every day into your house backyard, or walking to a local park.
You may spend the time planting seeds, pulling weeds, watering plants, etc. Communicating with nature is vitally important. It helps your brain to relax, remove the mental fatigue, and improve your work performance.
I suggest that you make it a habit everyday afternoon. At this time you need some time off the normal schedule in order to be able to get back to work until night if you have to.
3. Organize your Office:
This is a really important thing you need to do to keep your productivity level as high as possible. One of the habit of highly successful people is to maintain an organized office space. It will help you putting the stacks away and let you focus on your daily goals and tasks efficiently.
If it’s not organized and you’re having different things here, there, and there. While focusing and doing your work for the day, you may notice these papers over there which you need to fulfill, invoices you need to pay, or tasks you need to accomplish. You will be turned out from focused to disappointed, overwhelmed, and depressed.
The best practice here to become one of the highly successful people is to put every single stack away and just focus on what you want to do. To keep focused while writing a new blog post, I go to this room where there’s me, my laptop, and that’s it!
Keep your home office as clean and organized as possible. Spend the time to renovate your home office the way you love in order to enjoy what you’re doing away from any other things that may interrupt your thoughts.
4. Take a Noon Nap:
I wake up at around 7 am. I take my shower, brush my teeth, snuggle with our little Carmen while preparing the breakfast. At around 8.30 am I start blogging for quite long until 2 pm. We take a family launch and enjoy further time together.
At this point of the day after 2 pm, I would suggest taking a nap to keep your energy on track. A little nap of 10 to 15 minutes in the middle of the day can do wonders. Highly successful people make sure to maintain a short nap every day.
Studies showed that having little naps during the day helps to keep the productivity level high. It works here as a brain restoration and relaxation process after long working hours.
5. Listen to Music:
Here is another motivational factor you need to do during the day in order to keep a higher level of productivity. I’m one of those persons who gets motivated by listening to music. Regardless what are your favorite music tracks, make sure to listen to music on a daily basis. It will help relax your mind and thus give you a big push up towards success.
Listening to music along with seeing your Daydream written on your home office wall will let your brain reach a certain level of euphoria. These signals will be distributed to different centers in your brain delivering the clear message “Yes, We can do it“.
Studies showed that those who are listening to music are accomplishing tasks much faster, and always coming up with better ideas than those who don’t.
6. Wash Dishes or Do Laundry:
Yes, you read it right. I’m saying wash the dishes and/or do the laundry to increase your daily productivity. Doing such activities will release you from the distress you may face after spending a long time in front of your computer.
Make sure to do an irrelevant thing to cut the distress. I always come up with brilliant ideas while washing the dishes. It’s not about the activity, However, it’s about relieving the distress and restoring your energy to the peak level again.
What Do Highly Successful People Do Every day?
Maintaining a productive day is not hard; However, it requires setting up goals and arranging things in mind correctly. My preferred quote every morning is “Today, I will be the best version of me”.
Surround yourself with inspirational quotes, motivational music, highly successful people who are looking forward to achieving something. This will help you a lot to do things better and faster. Arrange your home office the way you wanted and enjoy the fabulous productivity outcomes.
Your turn, what you used to do to increase your daily productivity?
