Everyday above ground is a blessing, and when you’re blessed to see another day you should definitely make it a productive one. What does that mean, you might ask? Well, it definitely doesn’t insinuate that you should spend 24 hours tweeting to celebrity accounts, asking them to follow you back all day long. Instead, consider trying new things (interacting with a different audience, learning a new skill, building relationships with influencers, and/or living with a purpose).
So, what is your daily routine? Is it productive? What changes should you make? For some of us our daily routine consists of what’s comfortable, what is easy, and what we’re used to; this is fine to a certain extent, we all have to start somewhere and gradually grow at our own rate. For others, like myself, our daily routine consists of getting outside of our comfort zone, challenging ourselves, finding ways to enhance current skills while forming new ones, and connecting more with others on a daily basis. Obviously, there’s no perfect routine or perfect execution of your routine. However, you should always be looking for ways to enhance your daily activities, thus increasing your satisfaction level of self while pushing your boundaries.
Typically, you should have a set alarm for the work week (Monday thru Friday). Reason being, you are more focused this way and you will also feel more at ease with the use of this tactic, rather than randomly waking up when the sun shines through the drapes in the morning. More likely than not, 90% of work week alarms will be early morning. There is no use for weekend alarms as the weekends should be reserved to rest and catch up on more pleasant things- working out, favorite TV shows, family time, etc.
Also, be sure to plan out each day. Making a daily schedule can limit confusion and is really helpful to busy and forgetful individuals alike. Be sure to make your schedules very clear and concise.
Another tip to enhancing your daily routine is to try new things. Yes, I know, no one likes change. But in certain aspects, like a daily routine, change is vital to continuous satisfaction and growth. Imagine if you were an athlete, let’s say a basketball player. Imagine how you would feel if every day you ran the same drills, same plays, same everything (boring, right?). That’s exactly how your life would feel if you stick to the same schedule day in and day out; no challenge, just stagnant agendas. If you’re a blogger, tune into fellow blog forums associated within and away from your niche. If you’re a social media influencer, connect with other influencers and share ideas that can help mutually increase you guys’ marketing success, and if you haven’t quite found your calling yet, make a list of possible occupations that are likely to be of interest to you in the near future.
Perhaps you’re already an avid executer of all tips mentioned previously. Well, have you taken a step back to evaluate your performance as a whole? Maybe you have, but chances are you haven’t. No matter your profession, always remember to fine tune developed skills. It is great to build new skills and attract new audiences, but never forget to come back to your roots and continue to capitalize on the skills that helped elevate you to your current position. Though it may seem as though we’ve reached peak performance within these skills, that’s hardly ever the case. You can never be too good at anything.
Every day you should be hungry for more. You should be driven to chase success and motivate yourself to take all necessary steps to get there.
- Wake up at a reasonable time so you have more than enough time to plan your day and execute your plans for that day.
- Interact and share your ideas with like minded individuals within/away from your niche.
- Be sure to develop new, advanced skills, but also continue to build upon previously developed skills.
-How would you describe your daily routine
-How do you continue to motivate yourself to keep progressing?
-What strategies do you use to constantly move forward and share ideas with others?
