A good friend of mine (that is organized) sent me this link today and I couldn’t think of a better way to file it somewhere I can find it than blogging aboutit, so here we go. A good way to have a productive day start it the right way.  Although the orignal author’s post is written for freelancers,much of it could as easily apply to students, cab drivers or work-at-home freelancers!

Below are Mason Hipp’s 5 Easy Ways to Start  a Productive Day along with my own comments. If you want to read Mike’s original tips along with details added, you’ll need to visit his website by clicking the link above.

  1. Get a good night’s sleep
    George adds… brain boost
  2. Spend 20 minutes being disciplined
    George adds… a productive day will doubtless include discipline
  3. Eat Breakfast
    George adds… obvious – fuel your mind and body
  4. Clarify EXACTLY what tasks are productive
    George adds… planning makesa difference, so priorities are a must
  5. Get into work mode
    George adds… work mode, study mode, whatever applies to your life

Also…

  • get ready the night before as much as possible such as…
    • what you will be wearing
    • preparing your breakfast and/or lunch
    • make sure you have gassed up your car/truck
  • check the weather – do you need raingear, get up early to shovel snow?
  • stay focused on one task at a time
