Have you ever found yourself rushing through the morning, coffee in one hand, a list of tasks to complete, meetings to attend and before you know it it’s already noon? Sure you have. We’ve all been there, but have you tried to slow down though and stick to a practical routine that enables you to accomplish more in one morning than most people do in an entire workday? If not, this article is going to help you create a better system so you can stay focused and on track to great success.

While you’re running around chasing distractions and avoiding deadlines, there are responsibilities at hand that you must rule and take control of.

How to Have a Productive Morning

Every successful business person will tell you the three key ingredients for a productive day at the office include a good night sleep, passion for what you do, and a reliable workflow making it easier and efficient to get the job done in a timely manner. Simplifying your morning will help keep your mind clear so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Here are 10 tips to live by throughout your workweek.

  1. The night before, write down a list of tasks to focus on accomplishing in order from most to least important.

  2. Have in mind or lay out your outfit before you go to sleep so you don’t spend much time in the morning trying to decide on what you will wear the next day.

  3. Go to sleep at a decent hour so you can be sure to get plenty of sleep to feel well rested in the morning

  4. Prep your coffee in the coffee maker (unless you use a Keurig) so all you have to do when you wake up is go to the kitchen and hit the start button on the coffee maker and BAM there you go.

  5. Do not hit the snooze button in the morning, but it is certainly okay to roll over and cuddle your sweetheart for a few extra minutes 🙂

  6. Check your emails while you sip on your first cup of coffee after you take a shower (when you’re awake and alert)

  7. Have a healthy breakfast and bring a lunch with you for the afternoon so you don’t have to run out and get something

  8. Delegate what you can until you arrive at the office if you work in a setting where you are required to be in an office every day.

  9. Allow yourself an hour of quiet time in your office as you get situated and catch up on anything from the day before

  10. When you get home after a long day, remind yourself of all the blessings you are grateful for and relax with your loved ones. Be proud of what you were able to do during your day and share your accomplishments with your partner as they probably want to hear about the wonderful work you do.

Relax at the End of the Day
