Gird your bitcoins, you are not going to like this anymore than I do. In the interview I stumbled across every kind of entrepreneur was asked about how they prepare for the day ahead. I actually had a pad out to take notes, I really like taking notes. I will just say now, my pad sports a doodle of a frog with a dagger sticking out. Don’t analyse that right now, I’m demoralised enough. So here is the rundown of tips successful people do in the morning when they wake up around 5.45 ruddy am!! Yup, failed number one already.
1 Waking up and going to the tennis club for an hour before getting a shower and breakfast (venturing it’s not an all-day breakfast).
2 Drinking warm water with lemon first thing (this is interchangeable with green tea).
3 Snuggle time with Jason Statham (you can probably work that one out for yourself!)
4 A 2 hour workout before getting to the office for 8am and addressing the board
5 A swim in the pool before getting to the office
I think I am going to stop right there. All five are impossible for most of us, only one is desirable in my book. What? I’m really fond of lemon and water I’ll have you know! My morning routine can go one of two ways. Some days it starts with a 40 minute yoga stint and a hot shower to undo an awkward twist then lots of coffee in pink teddy slippers at the back door while my cat Max goes mental in the garden or lots of coffee in pink teddy slippers at the back door while my cat Max goes mental in the garden.
My point is, whatever you do in business, don’t put yourself in sharp relief with anyone else, you are only ever in competition with yourself. Well, I would like to put that point across obviously. Deep down, my point is they are probably all lying! Even the elite are probably zombies in the morning who only learn to speak legibly by 11.00 just like the rest of us. Go forth in the small business world, you are still amazing answering emails in your onesie!!
