28 million small businesses are operating in the United States with an additional 22 million professionals who are self-employed. Obviously, the entrepreneurial flame is alive and well in the hearts and minds of many, not just in the U.S., but around the world. CEO of Continuity Marketing and self made entrepreneur, Mohsin Bolwala discusses the daily habits which successful entrepreneurs have adopted into their routines and the recipe to maximise productivity during the 24 hour day.
Mohsin Bolwala of Continuity Marketing, firstly recommends starting the day off right and waking up nice and early. Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that they set out to achieve and make every single day count, they encourage waking up early, taking control and running the morning the way you want to, start being productive straight away, and be excited about the day ahead. “Waking up early gives you a head start from the rest, be first to the race, warm up and prepare earlier and you’ll be the first across the finish line.” says Mohsin Bolwala
Secondly, Mohsin Bolwala of Continuity Marketing advises us to ensure effective time management throughout the day as efficiency is key to success. As the old adage says, ‘work smarter, not harder’, you should make every minute of the day count by completing the smallest tasks first and as early as you can so that you can efficiently prioritize the bigger projects throughout the rest of the day.
Also, daily goal setting is extremely important for entrepreneurs to build their success, as meeting important deadlines will determine their commitment and dedication from the rest. Mohsin Bolwala of Continuity Marketing says, “The best entrepreneurs will always agree that setting goals for the day is vital to making it a successful one, writing your goals and having a clearly structured day; realistic goals first, deadlines, bonus achievements and of course rewards, will motivate you to accomplish all of your tasks.”
Lastly, to be a successful entrepreneur and self starter who stands out from the other 22 million who are self employed, you must persistently put these habits into action. Consistency is key when adopting habits, and it will help us to avoid veering off track when we are working towards our goals.
