Daily Routine is the Secret to Success

"You'll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine." – John Maxwell

We all know people, including ourselves, at times, who 'want to' accomplish some task in life but never take the steps to make it happen. And, unlike the movies, we can't just wave a wand. We can't dream it into existence.

To reach the top of the mountain, we must take one step at a time. To run a marathon, we must build up our endurance daily. The same applies to our business lives. If we want to roll out a new system or implement new procedures, we must take action to reach the goal and then follow the same processes repeatedly each day. We must be consistent and persevere.

Routines are the essential building blocks for success in life and business.

Your routine starts as soon as you wake up. Make Your Bed!

While speaking of routines, we can't bypass the famous speech by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven, ninth commander of U.S. Special Operations Command. In his speech, he emphasized the importance of making your bed each morning.

"If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. If you can't do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.

And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made — that you made — and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed." - Naval Admiral William H. McRaven, ninth commander of U.S. Special Operations Command

If you want to accomplish your life goals, start now. "The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine. Don't be the one who always shows up late, who often gets sick due to bad lifestyle habits, or the one who wants to make better decisions but is still stuck in a poor routine." - Mike Murdock

In addition to fulfilling your life goals, the benefits of daily habits and routines are exponential. Developing a daily morning routine:

  1. Helps you establish what is most important in your life.

  2. Limits your ability to procrastinate.

  3. It enables you to keep track of your goals.

  4. Establishes a better and more defined drive and passion.

  5. It allows you to be more productive and motivated throughout the day.

  6. Ensures you take small steps daily to stay aligned with your goals.

In the book, Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World, by Admiral William H McRaven, you will read about many life lessons, including.

  1. Start your day with a completed task.

  2. Don't go it alone.

  3. Grit and determination trump talent.

  4. Life is not fair; get over it.

  5. Rise to the occasion when life gets hard.

Life does not stand still and wait for any of us. We must get up each day and take steps to move in the direction we want to go intentionally. Otherwise, we will reach the end of the day and once again be disappointed because we are no closer to our goals.

Don't procrastinate any longer.
