Ridiculously Successful People
We know they exist because we hear about them all the time—people so successful that their names are synonymous with innovation, power, and huge piles of cold, hard cash. What we don’t hear about all the time is how these ridiculously successful people do it on a daily basis. Without further ado, here’s a top ten list of things these lucky sons of guns do to stay successful every day.
Number Ten: Remember to Eat and Sleep
This would seem to go without saying, but we have a stereotype of the successful entrepreneur who goes on four hours of sleep or less and subsists on big gulps or good old-fashioned coffee. In real life, this is a recipe for two things—the runs and burnout. The successful person knows that they are doing a marathon, not a quick sprint, and they are careful to eat and sleep healthy amounts to keep in top competitive condition. After all, four extra hours of work time don’t count for much if your brain is so fried from lack of sleep that it doesn’t work right anymore. Check out this video on healthy entrepreneurial sleep habits.
So, to run the risk of sounding like someone’s mother, eat right (especially breakfast) and go to bed on time!
