1. Winners get out of bed early
I know the business trend right now is toward
flexible schedules, but while you’re in bed
sleeping, someone else is out working. And, the
fact is, most CEOs aren’t sleeping until noon and
rolling into the office mid-afternoon.
They get up early and attack the day. In interview
after interview, they say their routine starts
with getting up around 5 or 6 a.m. and using the
two or three hours before they get into the office
to focus and prepare for the day ahead.
That may mean exercise, meditation, catching up
on current events pertinent to the business
or any number of things, but when they do arrive
at work, they are more productive and achieve
more than most.
The old saying “the early bird gets the worm” came
about for a reason.
The people who are up and doing are the people who
seize the opportunities first, so get up out of
bed and put in the extra time and effort it takes
to chase success. It’s not going to wait around
2. Be a daily goal setter and a daily goal hitter
There is nothing wrong with having long-range
goals and dreams, but what you do today greatly
affects whether or not you will achieve your
You have to intentionally design each and every
day in a way that leads to getting things done
that will maximize your results.
That does not mean being busy every minute of the
day just for the sake of being busy. That means
knowing what is important and focusing on those
Every night, or in those early morning hours you
are using to prepare for the day ahead, set your
Don’t make goals for the entire week. Just for the
upcoming day. Ask yourself what you must get done
each day that will produce the most results and
only work on those things. And make setting those
goals a daily habit.
3. Focus, focus, focus
Even if you set the goals, if you aren’t
focused—and by that I mean working on what’s
important now—you won’t be successful.
Successful people always know what is important in
the moment, they are relentless in getting it
done, and they don’t get distracted by unimportant
They have the ability to stay focused when other
people are unfocused, which is no easy feat the
higher up you move in an organization, because
everyone wants a piece of your attention.
If you want to be successful, you’ve got to
develop the discipline not to let anything take
your focus off the important things that will get
results. Sure, it’s going to take a lot of
practice to develop that discipline, but at the
end of the day those results are going to totally
be worth the hard work.
Look, I’m not going to lie to you: Winning and
success is quite often boring. It’s doing the same
successful thing over and over again.
But there is a scoreboard in life and business,
and establishing repetitive habits that lead to
effective performance is the key to winning
results—and results are what matters.
