How Successful People Start Their Day

Working at Home

It comes as no surprise that highly successful people have their morning routines down to a tee. From Donald Trump’s 4 hour sleep habit to Steve Jobs giving himself a motivational speech every morning, successful people know what works for them and stick to it. If you’re in a morning rut, here’s a few ideas to help boost your productivity and help the rest of your day run smoothly.

  1. Prep the night before

If you know that you wake up groggy or tend to be tight on time in the mornings, get a head start by prepping before you go to bed. You can choose your clothing and have it laid out to eliminate one choice in the busy morning. You can also plan and prep your meals the night before, as well as setting up a general game plan for the next day. To make sure that you’re not up into the wee hours of the morning, set an alarm to go to bed as well as an alarm to wake up. Once your alarm is set, put down the phone. The blue light emitted from electronics can disrupt your sleep cycle making it harder to fall and stay asleep. Also make sure to disable notifications at night if you sleep with your phone nearby to ensure that you get the best quality sleep to prepare you for the next day.

  1. Get an early start

If you strive to be among some of the most successful people in the world, a piece of the puzzle may be getting up earlier in the mornings. While there’s no need for a sudden 4:30 a.m. alarm clock, gradually waking up earlier can improve your productivity and make it feel like you have more time to get everything accomplished with less stress.

  1. Get moving

A tried and true habit of many successful people incorporates physical activity of some kind in the mornings. Whether its getting up and walking the dog, or hitting the treadmill for an hour like Bill Gates does, exercising in the mornings has a proven positive impact on the rest of your day. If you dread exercising, it’s already out the way before your day really starts, and if you crave exercise time, the mornings is a sure-fire way to fit it in and become part of your routine.

  1. Eat a balanced breakfast

For many professionals, breakfast consists of whatever is easiest to grab on the way out the door, or nothing at all. You’ve heard time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that’s because it’s true. Carving out time to eat breakfast not only improves your health, but will also increase your productivity and focus at work. So next time you pour your morning cup of coffee, scramble up some eggs or toast a bagel to go along with it.

  1. Make a list, check it twice

The epitome of getting things done is the to-do list. However, there is an updated version of the classic to-do list that you should be incorporating into your mornings. At night, write down the top things that you need to accomplish the following day. This will not only help with remembering small tasks from the day before, but also with clearing your mind before bed. In the morning when you start work, tackle the biggest thing first. By checking off the biggest or least desirable task first thing in the morning, the rest of your day will be free from the looming to-do list task that you are avoiding. This will also ensure that if something comes up during your workday that you do not have to push something else back or have to unexpectedly to work late.

By incorporating a few or all of these tips into your morning routine will ensure that you are being the most productive professional that you can be, and that your business will grow as you do.

Start-ups Leading the Coworking Space Revolution

Coworking Fort Myers

Coworking spaces are popping up in every major metropolitan area, and it is no wonder why. They are a breeding ground for innovation and collaboration – a melting pot of sorts – that allows creatives, entrepreneurs and everyone in between to share their ideas and services. In short, coworking is changing the face of business.

 

Are you familiar with that old adage, “History always repeats itself”? Well, in the case of coworking spaces, it is true. Think back to the 16th century, when wealthy aristocrats would gather the brightest artistic and scientific minds in one room, and call it a salon. The salon was an Italian invention of the 16th century, which flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.

 

Is this starting to sound familiar yet? A coworking space is the 21st century’s version of a salon. Apart from the stellar add-ons these spaces offer now, like game rooms, fully functioning kitchens, conference rooms and more, co-working spaces speak to the social butterflies in all of us. There is a certain alchemical reaction that takes place when you throw different people from all walks of life and careers into the same room. These meetings lead to to brilliant ideas, fruitful brainstorming sessions, and ultimately the evolution of businesses.

 

Let’s not forget the other motivator that drives all business-minded people – money.

 

According to Mark Corbett, co-founder of Pace Ventures, “The problem of increasing rental prices does not appear to be going away any time soon. The result is that enterprising individuals will continue to search for more effective, cost-saving, and creative ways to work and live.”

 

A coworking space is the answer to the question that plagues every entrepreneur’s mind: How can I reduce my overhead?

 

The beauty of a shared working space is that there is little to no commitment on the part of the member. If you want to pay for a day, then that is what you do. If you want to pay a monthly fee, you also have that option. What you don’t need to do is sign a lease that puts you and your budget between a rock and a hard place for a year or more.

 

Here at Endeavor, our daily pricing starts at just $29. We also offer private offices for just $34 per hour or $97 for the entire day. We also have differing levels of monthly pricing, which include options like a Premium Dedicate Desk for $379 per month, and a Cube Office for $439. For a full list of pricing and what each membership offers, visit our pricing page here.

 

It is the belief of some industry experts that established corporations will move their operations to co-working spaces for the culture and the cost. While this sentiment’s validity is yet to be determined, the following holds true. Start-ups will continue to make a co-working space their hub of operation. The benefits are many while the negatives are nearly non-existent. To recap, a start up can dramatically decrease their overhead and save on rent, office equipment like printers, call answering and routing, Wi-Fi and more.
