Writing notes with morning coffee

Success stories: Daily habits of top influencers

AUG 3, 2017:

We’ve all been there – Some days you just want to hit snooze on the alarm clock and stay in bed. It can seem all too tempting when you’re the boss of your own schedule, but if you want to follow in the footsteps of some of the most successful people in the business, it’s time to kick-start your morning routine and introduce some structure into your day-to-day.

Below are some shared habits from successful people, but remember to tailor your timeline to suit you. Not everyone needs to be an early riser to catch the worm!

Wake up and find your focus – from putting together a to-do list or writing in your journal, to reading something spiritual and setting your intention for the day.

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day. If you’re not a fan, turn it into a meeting and discuss ideas with a collaborator face-to-face or catch up with the online community with a cup of coffee in hand.

Workout – go for a run, practice your yoga or join a spin class. This will get oxygen pumping around your brain in no time.

Review goals – for the day, for the month, for the year! You want to know your priorities. Pick the most important thing you want to accomplish this morning.

Admin – from replying to emails or DMs to reaching out to brand PRs, get anything that’s likely to distract you later out the way.

Thinking time – whether it’s reading a book, listening to music, scrolling through Instagram and Twitter, or watching competitor videos, this is a chance to find something to spark your imagination. And now you’re ready to write, film, blog, snap to your heart’s content!

We also like digital marketer and blogger Cammi Pham’s tongue-in-cheek take on the influencer’s daily routine: In her post, she jokes about tweeting #alldayeveryday and then hitting the free bar at a party until 2am, before explaining that ‘true influencers would never call themselves “influencers” because they are too busy adding value to others’ lives. They use their powers for good, not personal gain.’ Make sure your story of success does just that.
