21 Sep Check out these 10 habits that are definitely worth developing

These are my Top 10 habits I’ve developed over the last 33 years after studying entrepreneurs, executives from Fortune 1000 companies and my own personal experiences:
Make a daily list
Every morning, make a list of the three most important things you have to do for the day that will make the largest impact. This helps to cut out the noise and forces you to prioritize. For example, the top three things on my list today were to host a training, attend two executive meetings and write two articles. I completed all three. #Priorities
Use the 10 years test
When you run into tough situations, often times it will seem like a disaster. Many years ago, I made a mistake at work and my boss was incredibly upset with me.

If you improved just a little bit every single day, think of how that effect compounds over a year. The impact becomes dramatic over time.
Watch a thought leader on YouTube every week
A lot of my friends and gurus recommend reading every day to learn. I like reading, but I tend to learn better through visuals. That’s why I like to watch a thought leader discuss their learnings and insights on Youtube instead. Here’s one of my favorite videos when I need a little bit of inspiration. I find it to be a great way to supplement my learning. #GetInspired
Batch your emails
It’s easy to get distracted as a thousand emails hit your inbox throughout the day. Instead of checking each one as it comes in, batch it and check the batch every 3 hours if you can. Usually, if it’s something urgent someone will Gchat, Slack, Skype, text or call you…
