Mornings that start off wrong often lead to a chain reaction of things going wrong and an unproductive day. Entrepreneurs cannot afford unproductive days, as productivity is tied to results and revenue. Thus, it is especially critical for us to start the day off in a positive manner. In The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs, Authors Hal Elrod and Cameron Herold discuss the importance of an effective morning routine and walk readers through the process of creating one. They use the acronym S.A.V.E.R.S.(Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, Scribing) to teach entrepreneurs to jumpstart their day in a way that will create the positivity, creativity, and energy necessary for a productive and successful day.
Time is a commodity that most of us wish we had more of; this is particularly true for the busy entrepreneur. Though we may often wish for it, there is no way to add more time into the day; however, The Time Chunking Method is a guide that will teach you how to maximize the time that you do have. Author Damon Zahariades instructs readers on how to prioritize their daily tasks and complete them using 25 minute task specific, focused time chunks. I am certain that you will be as amazed as I was, at how much you are able to get accomplished using this simple method.
Whether you need help breaking a bad habit, creating a productive morning routine, tweaking your time management, or all of the above, these three books will help you achieve the results you desire. Add them to your library and good luck on your journey to entrepreneurship.
