10 Best Habits of High Achievers!

10 Best habits of high achievers!

Ernest Hemingway: Up at 5:30 every morning to write even if he’d been drinking the night before. He wrote as a practice, not just when he felt inspired. 

Benjamin Franklin: Sat naked every morning in fresh air for his “bath” which he swore fuelled his energy and creativity. He also listed 13 character traits he wanted to build and measured how he lived against each of them every night before he slept (in a journal). 

Padmasree Warrior: (Chief Technology Officer at Cisco Systems): Regular “digital detoxes” where she unplugs from technology to reboot her brain and replenish her creative reserves. 

Leonardo da Vinci: Slept via small naps throughout the day versus sleeping 8 hours straight. The famed inventor Thomas Edison reportedly did the same thing (as does Hip-Hop mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs). 

Will Smith: recalled when he watched the movie Star Wars for the first time, he did not believe it was possible for a movie to move people that much. When he decided to be a world-class movie actor, he understood that he needs a desperate, obsessive focus to excel on the movies that he would appear in. He realized that it was difficult to achieve success if he was doing multiple things. In order to be successful, he believed he needs to focus with all of his heart, his creativity, and all of the fiber of his being.

Steve Jobs: Would fast for extended periods of time, recognizing that it created a sense of euphoria within him that motivated his dazzling output of ideas. He also loved carrots, eating so many during one period that his skin turned to a soft orange color.

Maya Angelou: Writes in a cheap and spartan hotel room she rents. She awakes at home around 5:30 each morning, has coffee with her husband and then shows up at the hotel room to do seriously productive work by 7 am. “It’s lonely and it’s marvellous” she says. Personally, I’ve done the most important work of my career in hotel rooms from Buenos Aires to Auckland. And on airplanes (the longer the flight the more I get done).

Ludwig Van Beethoven: Loved his coffee and measured out his beans with meticulous love and care: 60 beans per cup. Many elite performers use this drink as a productivity tool. But please do so in moderation: Balzac drank 50 cups a day. Sadly, he died from a heart attack at 51.

Mick Jagger: Exercises 6 days a week and includes ballet, pilates and yoga in his regimen. Sir Mick clearly gets that fitness rewires the brain to fight fear, reduces the stress response and multiplies stamina.

Stephen King: Writes every single day of the year and does not get up from the pursuit of his craft until his daily quota of two thousand words has been met.

Now ask yourself how what habits will allow you to highly achieve?

  1. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to
    take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at
    how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyways, good blog! I have been surfing on-line more
    than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web
    owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the
    web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    here at this blog, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting at this place.

    1. Hi Joseph, thank you so much for this note! My immediate answer is yes, blogging takes an enormous amount of time before you see any “pay off”. I’ve operated full days on 3 hours sleep producing content. It doesn’t feel like work to me and I can already tell that it won’t feel like work to you because you write in your journal everyday. This is how I used to be before blogging, now this blog is my journal. Makes the unloading of ideas much quicker and easier. Niche is King. If you’d like to hear about how I built this blog, I’d be glad to share that as well. Best wishes on your journey, let’s stay in touch 🙂
