Happy Monday Everybody!
I know that a lot of you out there don’t share my feelings about Monday’s, but luckily that isn’t what I’m going to talk about today.
Today we’re going to talk about the power of having a routine. I know that it’s often said that doing the same old thing over and over again won’t help you get ahead, and yeah this is true, but we aren’t talking about doing the same old thing over and over. We’re simply talking about routine.
The kind of routines you want to have are very simple. Brush your teeth and shower every morning when you wake up, and you also make your bed, and eat breakfast before you head out the door. These simple tasks you complete all the time are more important than you might think. Do you remember that one time you overslept and had to have a quick shower, but you didn’t have time to eat breakfast or make your bed, and you didn’t even realize you forgot to brush your teeth that morning? You probably got to work and had a pretty rough day all in all.
Why did you have a rough day? And how did I know that? When you complete those few small tasks every morning, you may not realize it, but you’ve accomplished something. When you missed those tasks, you feel like you’ve already failed the day, so you felt that way the rest of the day. Feeling down all day caused you to not work as hard, or focus as well as usual.
Find out what your routine in the morning is, and make sure you feel accomplished when you complete those tasks every morning. If you want to change up your routine, write it down, stick the new routine on your bedroom mirror, and accomplish the new tasks too.
If you do this, everyday you can walk into work feeling good about yourself, and confident about the day.
Until next time,
