5 Habits Successful Business Leaders Use Every Day

Not everyone can lead a huge company to success, but those who do share some unique habits. It’s not enough to work long hours; those hours have to be put to good use.

Here are five daily habits to adopt for long-term entrepreneurial success.

1. Determine your peak intelligence time.

Aspiring leaders need to identify the time of the day when they are most productive. Are they morning people? Night owls? People who thrive after lunch?

Everyone has some point during the day when he’s better able to work, but most don’t lean into it, choosing instead to stick to the 9-to-5 norm.

2. Create a routine around your peak intelligence time.

Everyone knows that the only way to change anything is by changing habits. If entrepreneurs don’t guard their routines and fight for them, they won’t be able to change.

After identifying their preferred times of day, business leaders should use those periods to their benefit.

3. Remove triggers for distraction.

Everyone knows that, especially in the digital world, distractions are all around. But there’s a triggering moment before someone gets engaged by a distraction.

4. Replace minor rewards with value-adds.

The way to level-up habits and create valuable change is to pursue the same emotional rush that small rewards like snacks give but through different mechanisms.

The key is to identify what the distraction offers in terms of reward.

5. Answer email, Slack and texts less frequently.

I’ve heard it said that “the reward of answering digital correspondence is a temporary feeling of accomplishment followed by even more digital correspondence.”

The more emails a person sends, the more he gets back. The key is to become OK with being off the grid, saying no and turning off devices more frequently.
