My Daily Routine (Example of an Entrepreneur)


my daily routine

The following is a sample from Level Up Your Day: How to Maximize the 6 Essential Areas of Your Daily Routine. If you’re having trouble coming up with your daily routine, then I recommend this book to help you get started.

Identifying what to work on is a constant, daily struggle.

As an entrepreneur, you’re faced with a seemingly infinite amount of opportunities. What do I write next? Do I need to answer the 40 emails in my inbox? Should I pursue a new project that might take my business to the next level? These are the questions you might wake up to every morning.

The problem is, we don’t have a boss telling use what’s important. Often, we began each day by working on the tasks that seemed urgent, but aren’t critical to the success of the business—like checking email or social media.

How to Get Motivated: The Science of Achievement through Motivation


How to get motivated

“How to get motivated” is something that I do not spend a lot of time talking about here on Develop Good Habits. It is not that I think motivation doesn’t play an important role in successful habit change, but I that feel systems, rituals and routines play a more essential part than motivation.

But motivation IS important, so when I wanted to discuss the importance of motivation and give some ideas on how YOU can get more motivation into your lives, I reached out to a motivational expert.

Ravi Raman is a guy who takes motivation very seriously. He runs a personal development blog that features motivation as a key component of positive life change. (See it here).

The Amazing Effect of Good Habits on Decreasing Stress


Stress and Habits

Stephen Guise has written multiple posts on this blog about his “mini habits” concept. Today he talks about interconnection of good habits and how they can help reduce stress.  To learn more, check out this book: Mini Habits: Smaller Habits. Bigger Results and his advanced course Mini Habit Mastery, which is offered at 50% off to the readers of this blog.  

Good habits make you happier, healthier, and chemically work to decrease stress levels.

There’s another way that good habits reduce stress, however, and it’s not commonly known.

The Interesting Relationship Between Stress And Habits

Did you know that when we are stressed out, we are more likely to perform habitual behaviors? Why do you think that is?

In researching for the Mini Habit Mastery course I’m creating, I found a study on habits and emotions. In this study, researchers found that the more nonhabitual behaviors a person was doing (also known as multi-tasking), the more stressed out they were. Picture an office worker on the phone, answering emails, and talking to a coworker about another project. Sounds stressful, no?

Habits are the opposite of that. Continue Reading →
