Want to be successful? Just treat the first hour of your work differently!

Success is sought after by everyone but only few achieve it. Success in these present global turmoil moments of staggering economy and financial continuous disruption is a difficult path and more than ever it requires vision, focus, passion, endurance and determination.' What counts is not the number of hours you put in, but how much you put in the hours.'- this holds true everywhere and its up to us whether we use our time productively or waste it.

The first hour of everyday is of great importance as it can be utilized to get one real thing done, and focus on the human side of work rather than your task list. This hour can play a decisive role in what we do in the rest of our day. Successful people are objective.  They have realistic targets in mind.  They know what they are looking for and why they are fighting for it. They do things differently and their success mantra is well defined. Decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do. It is highly important to not check your mails in the very first hour of your day. If you need to make sure the most important messages from select people come through instantly, ‘AwayFind’ can monitor your inbox and get your attention when something notable arrives. Otherwise, it’s a gradual but rewarding process of training interrupters and coworkers notto expect instantaneous morning response to anything they send in your off-hours.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small pieces. This philosophy holds true for achieving your biggest goals.  Making small, positive changes eating a little healthier, exercising a little, creating some small productive habits, for example is an amazing way to get excited about life and slowly reach the level of success you aspire to.

Most things make no difference.  Being busy is often a form of mental laziness lazy thinking and indiscriminate action. This is Ferris’ way of saying “work smarter, not harder,” which happens to be one of the most prevalent modern day personal development clichés.  But like most clichés, there’s a great deal of truth to it, and few people actually adhere to it.

Significant moments of opportunity for personal growth and success will come and go throughout your lifetime.  If you are looking to make positive changes and new breakthroughs in your life, you will need to embrace these moments of opportunity even though you will never feel 100% ready for them.
