“A superb way to become far more successful is to watch how most people live and do the opposite.”~ Robin Sharma
When it comes to the difference between Ignited Tycoons and average entrepreneurs, there is no doubt that daily practices play a huge role. Here are 5 things Ignited Tycoons do every day:
1. Ignited Tycoons Prioritise
Whether by using a To Do list, or by setting MITs (Most Important Tasks) Ignited Tycoons leave home knowing exactly what they set out to accomplish each day. They don’t just wake up and “see where the day will lead”, rather they direct the day the way they want it to go. They make a list of tasks to be accomplished in order of their importance.
This way, even if things don’t go exactly as planned, they still get a lot done, and their chances of having a fulfilled day are significantly higher than that of a person without a prioritised plan.
2. Ignited Tycoons Have a Healthy Breakfast
Having fasted overnight, skipping breakfast means the body is running on empty until lunch- where you proceed to wolf down anything in sight, healthy or not. This does you no good and makes it difficult to keep your mind on what’s at hand and not on your growling stomach. Ignited Tycoons know that no matter how much they have to accomplish daily, going without breakfast is counterproductive. A simple bowl of fresh fruit or oatmeal will jump start your metabolism, boost your spirits and provide the fuel needed to ignite a phenomenal day.
3. Ignited Tycoons Protect Their Time: Ignited Tycoons use their time wisely. They are specific about the time they dedicate to working on achieving their goals. They are wary of time wasters. They realise that time is their most precious asset, and that it is an invaluable commodity, so they have zero tolerance for unnecessary disruptions. They apply time management with utmost devotion.
4. Ignited Tycoons Take Action. Ignited Tycoons are successful because they know that the key difference to achieving success is in actually taking action. You can have a clear vision of what you want and even map out a plan to get there, but if you do not take action, your knowing and planning are of no use. It is not what you know; it is what you do with what you know.
5. Ignited Tycoons Reflect
Ignited people understand the power of quiet time. They take time to rest, reflect and refresh. Ignited Tycoons always reflect on their day, note what worked and what didn’t, and devise new ways to ensure a more productive tomorrow. The Ignited Tycoon asks at the end of every day, “How was my day? Was it outstanding or just marginal? Did I make any progress with my goals? Did I render good service? Did I give more than was required of me or did I give just enough to get by? Ignited Tycoons know that success leaves clues!
