Enter Beast Mode Every Morning to Finish 90% Work By 12 Noon

Every morning you see a trail of mails from your CEO and wonder if he or she sleeps at all. Well, most successful people wake up early and by around 12pm they are done with 90 per cent of their work. They understand the power of mornings and enter the beast mode as soon as they wake up.

They hit the bed at a fixed time, wake up at ungodly hours, go for a run, exercise, come back, send out mails, read newsletters and have breakfast. Well, the activities may differ from person to person. But, most of them finish a number of tasks in the morning. Sergio Marchionne, the CEO of Fiat and Chrysler, wakes up as early as 3:30am to deal with the European market. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc., starts his day as early as 4:30am to send emails. Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of General Electric, says he wakes up by 5:30am for his daily workout routine.

All successful and highly productive people wake up early as morning sets the tone of the day. More productive your mornings, better accomplished will be the rest of the day.

Mornings are distraction free, thus making them take decisions quickly. After all the routine work, they still find time to focus on self-growth. They create plans to reach their goals and even journal them down.Oprah Winfrey keeps a journal and writes down her accomplishments every day. Most productive people keep track of their progress, set goals, reflect, and learn from their mistakes, all during morning hours. They understand that they need a map to accomplish great things.

And, they go to work and finish the most difficult office task first thing in the morning. They follow Mark Twain's "Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day."

By 12pm, they are done with most of the work, when the world is still cribbing about how they were stuck in the traffic. So, to be successful, fix your morning routine before you change anything else.
