What daily habits do you practice in your business and your life?
When we consider the thought process that time is money — we’re curious, where are you investing yours?
In this blog, we want to share with you ideas and suggestions that we have collected — and implemented — in our own daily activities. You might be surprised that although a few of them will feel ‘outside‘ of your business world ..
… you will also discover that they are imperative to your business overall success. Additionally, we would love to know the things you incorporate daily; you just may have an idea we would LOVE to add to our own lists!
Daily Habits for your Life and Business
Here are some of our favorite tips that we’ve learned from other successful entrepreneurs over the last several years of our career:
Daily mindset training
Start implementing 10-15 minutes of reading, listening to a podcast, or watching a webinar. Our suggestion to you is choose the same time every day to do these things if possible. Feel free to switch up the medium you consume as well. Sometimes variety can help stimulate new ideas — which is always a GOOD thing!
Bullet journaling takes the chaos of coordinating your life into a streamlined system. It helps you be more productive and reach your personal and professional goals. include sections to log your daily to-do’s, monthly calendar, notes, long-term wants and more.
(Entries are tagged with bullet points, dashes, and other graphics so you can see their categories at a glance.) Definitely something we encourage you checking out!
Revisiting your WHY
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Remember why you started this journey into entrepreneurship and network marketing. What was your focus, your mission, your vision? One idea is to use post-it notes around your work space (or otherwise) as a constant reminder of WHY you are working so hard. This is probably among the best daily habits you can create for yourself because you will find you come across times that you will need to revisit these things regularly.
Sharing your story with someone new
Your story is powerful and in our opinion … a disservice if you are not sharing it. Think about the people you come into contact with, get to know them and reciprocate your own story. This doesn’t have to be even related to your company or business — but it can certainly tap into your why.
When you take the pressure of business off the table and focus on being human, the rest will come!
Intentional engagement on social media
Don’t get caught in the web of scroll! This is among our top productive daily habits we’ve implemented. We schedule time for the scroll game, for sure .. we like being social too — however, we have scheduled time that is focused solely on connecting with and loving on people.
One suggestion is to decide how many people you want to reach out to in your allotted time and do that. Do that before you do anything else on there. Way too many people get caught wasting time on social media and feel that they’re ‘working’. Be mindful of the time you are spending on there and what you are accomplishing during that time. You may surprise yourself.
This may be in the form of;
- a walk in the sunshine
- a hot bath
…. or whatever fills you up! It is amazing how we seem to never end up on a priority list, right? When you create daily habits that include YOU … you will find you are far more productive, able to focus and execute efficiently.
Arranging a coffee date
Get out of the house (or office)! Often, connecting with people physically can help boost our morale overall. Now, although you probably don’t want to attend a coffee date everyday, take the time to reach out to those locally to you. Remember, networking can happen (and should) on and offline. (Of course, do this in a way that you believe it to be safe for you and others)
Belly to belly may look a little different with the convenience of social media but, you never know who or what that coffee date could lead you to!
