The 7 daily habits of productive leaders

  1. 1. THE 7 DAILY HABITS OF PRODUCTIVE LEADERS
  2. 2. Are you… Rushing to work, yet again without breakfast and in a haze? Whether you’re a data analyst or pursuing a master of business administration, no matter what field, you probably want to be a successful leader. But a word of caution: Big city dreams are tripped up by personal disorganization!
  3. 3. One question! There’s just one question you need to know the answer to: How do successful leaders stay productive?
  4. 4. Find out! You don’t have to guess how they do it! From the horse’s mouth, here are 7 habits that successful leaders practice each to stay at the top of their game. http://www.awaken.com/2013/08/9-habits-of-extremely- productive-people/
  5. 5. #1 Mapping out the day A fantastic way to maximize your potential is listing out the day’s:  Schedule  To-do items  Goals Mornings are the best time to do this as it allows:  Clear-minded reflection  Uninterrupted planning Sevetri Wilson, CEO of Solid Ground Innovations, time-blocks not just her meetings but even the time she spends on social media! Remember – plan short breaks during the day! As Benjamin Franklin cleverly said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” http://www.organizeit.com/to-do-list-notepad- stationery.asp
  6. 6. #2 Eating breakfast While it doesn’t take a genius to figure this one out, the importance of eating breakfast cannot be overstated. Get your body ready for the day ahead sitting down to a fulfilling breakfast. This is the perfect time to connect with your family before you begin the long work day. Good company and a satisfied stomach will keep your productivity levels high! https://ymcahouston.wordpress.com /2012/09/28/what-you-can-do-to- keep-your-child-healthy/
  7. 7. #3 Exercising Exercise gives you:  Good health  A sense of achievement Both of which help prep the mind for the day’s work. If you simply cannot relish the thought of a 5 am jog, start with waking 20 minutes earlier. Use the time to do a quick set of stretches and pushups. This will get your blood flowing and your body ready for the day. http://www.hellawella.com/easy- morning-exercises-night-owls
  8. 8. #4 Waking up early One common trait found in influential folks, CEOs and top officials? You guessed it, they’re up before dawn!  Robert Iger, Disney’s CEO, wakes up at 4.30 am  Margaret Thatcher, UK’s former PM, awoke at 5 am each day  CEO of Square, Jack Dorsey was also up at 5 am You may say, “But I work best at night!” That’s not necessarily true. According to an Inc. Magazine article, early risers are more proactive and productive. The road to productivity isn’t easy, but there sure is gain with the pain! Need more proof? Check out what happed when busy people tried waking up really early for a change. http://worthylifetalks.com/just-wake-up-early-turn- life-for-good-literally/
  9. 9. #5 Continually learning “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other” John F. Kennedy’s succinct words are ones to live by. Make it a point to learn something new and relevant about your business everyday. A leader out of touch with what matters cannot expect to remain productive.
  10. 10. #6 Hitting restart Many times, things at work don’t go as you anticipated. Whether you’re a junior employee or a CEO, you will struggle with losing focus during the day. When that happens, Brian Scudamore, CEO of 1-800-GOT- JUNK? and You Move Me, mentally restarts his day. And you should too!  Put aside all current tasks  Take a blank sheet a paper  List out your commitments  Circle the top three that have the biggest impact on the day’s work  Leave the rest behind! Studies have shown that writing down tasks keeps people from becoming mentally preoccupied. It’s no wonder successful leaders write out their priorities! http://gerrywieder.com/today-is-the-first-day-of-the-rest- of-your-life/
  11. 11. #7 ‘Eat that frog!’ Brian Tracy’s famous book compares the big task of the day to eating a frog – most people will procrastinate such an unappetizing task. But the sooner you do the least desirable task, the better. The rest of the day can go by without the dread and apprehension the task would have caused. James Clear, successful living author and seminar leader, advocates doing the painful things first in order to succeed. Biting the bullet will conserve your mental and physical energy, so eat that frog!
  12. 12. #8 Beginning! Whether you’re doing your MBA in Bangalore or beginning the career of your dreams in London, these habits work! It is never too early to prepare for success. Take it from those who have been there and done that, develop these habits, see your success come to life! Brought to you by AIMS Institutes
