Regardless of whether they’re a fitness icon like Greg Plitt, an internet marketer like Tai Lopez or a Silicon Valley giant like Mark Zuckerberg, these men all share one thing in common (along with oodles of other successful people). This habit they all share is so simple, and may appear insignificant but it’s not.
It’s the small success habits like these that, compounded over days, weeks and years add up to make all the difference
All successful people prepare for tomorrow the evening before…
All this takes is the exercising of your discipline and 5 minutes of your time and will set you up for a productive day from the get-go, there’ll be no procrastinating and fussing about early in the morning to decide what you’re going to wear and what you’re going to do that day – you don’t want to deplete your willpower and find yourself with a case of decision fatigue before the day has begun.
Step 1 – Lay Your Clothes Out
Regardless of whether you’re going to the bench press or the board room upon waking you must have your clothes layed out and prepared for the morning so you don’t need to choose or hunt down what you’re going to wear.
Why? You’ll save time and reduce the number of decisions you’re making which will allow your willpower to remain at full force for longer.
I personally wear the same outfit to the gym each and every day, a plain black H&M singlet and a pair of dark dark blue under armour shorts with compression.
I own 7 pairs of this outfit and I lay it out in anticipation the night before my 5am workout.
Step 2 – Prepare Your Daily Goals
Without a to-do list or goals list you’re not going to have a compelling reason to get out of bed in the morning.
You must know what you’ve got to do before it’s time to do it. Have 3 – 5 things written down either on a small whiteboard or in a notepad next to your bed.
Wake up, get dressed in your clothes you layed out then begin to forge your way through your to-do list…
It’s the small routines that set individuals up for success, get started tonight and you’ll notice the difference tomorrow!
