Hans Eckhardt Tucson actively sought out advice from others a few years ago, and it has helped his results to go exponential – all it took was the full-on implementation of a few key success habits into his everyday regimen.
After he bought in fully, it didn’t take long before he started to achieve the results he had been seeking in business all along.
Want to kill it in your niche? Below, we’ll share a few of the habits the best entrepreneurs use to make the most of the 24 hours they are given.
1) They are in shape and they eat well
While many believe commerce to be a sedentary endeavor, being in top shape is like a performing enhancing drug.
You don’t need to be physically fit to win at business, but it greatly increases your odds of success if you are.
When your muscular and circulatory systems are at a high level of efficiency and strength, it becomes easier to summon the energy necessary to power through days filled with meetings and mounds of work.
They prioritize running first thing in the morning while their contemporaries are snug in their beds. They climb stairs when everyone else stands like zombies on the escalators. At home, they crank out push ups during commercials of their favorite TV shows.
The food they eat plays a big role as well. By shirking white carbs, they avoid the energy crashes they cause. Instead, they actively seek out nutrient dense vegetables, lean meats, and multi-grain breads filled with complex carbs, as they have the building blocks necessary to put together a system that is able to fire on all cylinders.
If you ever wondered how the best known entrepreneurs have boundless energy, you now know why.
2) They don’t waste their time making a mountain out of minor issues
When you are a startup founder, you will make more decisions in a day than used to make in a week. With so many moving parts in a business, you will need to streamline or eliminate your role in making small decisions so you can conserve your energy for the issues that really matter.
Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs eschewed being fashion models because it wasn’t worth burning their gray matter over something that had no impact on the outcome of their businesses.
They had a set rotation of clothes they never deviated from, as it eliminated the endless second-guessing the rest of us go through in front of the mirror every morning.
This way, you won’t be mentally fatigued by the time you need to make a choice that could lead to a profit or a loss six months from now.
Most ‘problems’ are minor, so streamline your response to them so you can use your brainpower to skyrocket your results.
3) They take the concept of a work/life balance very seriously
When you get into the nitty gritty of getting a startup off the ground, the idea of taking time off can seem like a foreign concept.
This may be an intense time in the life cycle of your business, but if you aren’t taking at least one day off per week outside of deadline periods, you are doing it wrong.
Also, if you don’t have a set quit time where you shut your work laptop and go outside or do things with your significant other, you are setting yourself up for a meltdown at some point in the near future.
After all, what is the use of making a ton of money if you have no time or nobody to enjoy it with?
The best entrepreneurs book ‘me’ time like a ‘A’ priority business meeting.
Nothing but the most serious of emergencies will get them to clear their schedule, as there is more to life than working all the time.
