Is It Possible To Truly Master Success?
Have you ever wanted to literally master success, but wondered if you really could? My name is Rick Morsovillo and I have discovered that many successful entrepreneurs have similar routines and schedules which are an integral part in their successful everyday lives. This blog is Part One of a four-part blog on the habits and routines of entrepreneurs that have mastered their success.
Entrepreneurs Master Success By Having A Morning Routine
Author Laura Vanderkam recently conducted a study on the schedules of high achievers. She discovered that almost all of them scheduled their success. They got up early and had a morning routine. Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group, is a huge advocate of taking control of your productivity in the mornings. Tony Robbins, Peak Performance Coach, calls that morning time “The Hour of Power.”
Getting up early and completing a morning routine has lots of benefits. Walking into a work day fully alert helps ready the entrepreneur for the demands of the day. Accomplishing small personal and professional goals before work is a mood booster and small pieces of evidence for achieving success. For example, my morning mood-boosting routine involves waking up and drinking two glasses of water, making a cup of green tea and then working out.
Master Success Tip: Consider scheduling time to achieve quick, easy personal and/or professional goals before work rather than after work.
Entrepreneurs Master Success By Knowing When To Schedule For Problem-Solving
Dealing with problems is a big part of being a successful entrepreneur. Some problems need to be handled at the moment they arise. Others problems can wait for solutions. To master success you need to get dialed into your personal problem-solving habits. My timing for problem-solving depends on both internal and external factors. There are times when I feel more prepared to be solutions oriented than others. For example, if I have not slept well, I will not deal with a problem until I am fresh. In these cases, I will allocate time the next morning, after my workout when I am fresh. Sometimes the solution requires collaboration. In these cases I have to be aware of my team and their schedules. There are other times when I don’t know about problems. Scheduling regular department meetings gives the team an opportunity to bring them up and allocate time for solutions.
Master Success Tip: Schedule status meetings with your teams. Know the internal and external factors that impact your ability to effectively deal with problems and plan accordingly.
