- They Wake Up Early
The average person wakes up at 8AM, and it’s easy to see why. According to the Mayo Clinic, a full night’s sleep is 7-9 hours long, so waking up earlier gives you more time to get things done than anyone else. Not only does this give you more time to accomplish your goals but it also gives you an opportunity for self-reflection and meditation before everyone else gets out of bed.
- They Write Down Their Goals
If you want to accomplish anything in life, it all starts with setting goals for yourself. Your goals should be specific and clear that way they can be measured and compared against other people’s goals. This will help keep your motivation high throughout the day because every time you get off track from your goals it’ll make you feel bad about yourself which will make you try harder next time. To start writing down your goals, just answer these questions: What do I want? Why do I want it? How do I plan on getting there?
- They Always Keep A Clean Desk
Just like with having a clean house, having a clean desk keeps the mind feeling organized and less cluttered which allows us to think more clearly about what we’re doing and how we’re doing it. A clean desk also makes everything look nicer so if someone walks by they’ll instantly have a better impression of us than if our desks were cluttered with junk mail and soda cans. Keeping our desks clean also shows that we’re responsible for keeping our work spaces neat which can help us get promotions at work or earn higher grades from professors at university depending on the coursework involved. Moving clutter out of sight is essentially moving negative thoughts out of our minds which helps us focus on what we’re doing instead of always thinking about what needs to be done later on aside from whatever task is currently in front of them; whether that task happens to be cleaning their room or writing an essay for class!
- They Exercise Regularly
Exercising releases endorphins into the brain which makes us happier overall while also helping with depression and anxiety issues, which are two large factors in procrastination. Working out doesn’t necessarily need to mean going for a run or lifting weights either; simple exercises like stretching or dancing are just as effective if not more so because they require no equipment whatsoever! It doesn’t even need to be something as intense as running marathons either; just go outside for 30 minutes every morning before going about your day will already have noticeable effects on your mood throughout the entire day!
- They Set Aside Time For Meditation And/Or Personal Development
Meditation isn’t just sitting still without fidgeting until nothing is left in your mind anymore (although that sounds pretty nice). Meditation is meant as an exercise in self-awareness as well as being used as an outlet for personal growth; both are proven ways of dealing with stress better than any medication could ever hope to and both are crucial when trying times come up along the way towards accomplishing our goals regardless of how small they may seem sometimes! The same rule applies here too: Just 20 minutes every morning (or whenever seems best) where all you do is sit still without distraction will help set everything straight again before starting whatever tasks need completing that day!
With those five habits alone, any person would become much more efficient at getting things done no matter how many tasks are piling up around them. But don’t take this as a completely exhaustive list; there are many factors that go into what makes someone successful.
