10 Things The Most Successful People Do Every Day / Barking Up the Wrong Tree

Fantastic post from the blog Barking Up The Wrong Tree about the lessons that can be learned from reading author Tim Ferriss’ book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers .

The ten things that the most successful people do every day as listed in the post :

  • Have a mindful morning ritual: Don’t start the day reacting. Get focused.
  • Turn weaknesses into strengths: Channel your inner Rudolph.
  • Don’t ignore the clichés: Many are spoken so often because they work.
  • Be able to think, to endure and to wait: Far more valuable skills than being good with Microsoft Excel.
  • Have an “overnight task”: Sleep on it. Your muse works while you rest.
  • Clear the path: Do more than you’re required to do and you’ll get to do what you want.
  • They’re not evil. They’re exhausted: We can all be big kids. They don’t hate you. They need a nap.
  • Remember the 5 chimps theory: You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose wisely.
  • Know when to use your moral compass: If you start out judging, you won’t be listening.
  • Get a “Jar of Awesome”: Don’t just achieve. Appreciate.
