So much has been written on productivity habits. We have been given lists of the best apps to get us to work and articles on the morning routines of CEOs and other successful people. We are told that waking up early is best and that multitasking will make us less productive.
The other day we were shopping around on another online store and had a quick question we wanted to ask about their products.
But when we searched around for their “Contact Us” page, we realized we had to send an email and wait ages just for a question that would probably take them 2 seconds to answer!
So we came back and got straight to work.
Morning routines are talked about a lot because they help us set the tone for the rest of the day. They’re important. We’ve spent years perfecting our own morning routines.
But some days, our morning routines just don’t go that well. We sleep in past our alarm or we wake up stressed and disoriented. This left us scratching our heads wondering what we could do to make sure we’re
BestSelf Co. had its first team retreat in the Poconos! All 7 team members from 6 cities met up for a 3-day cottage retreat. Having a remote team is awesome because we can all work from anywhere but only seeing each other on video calls each week just isn’t the same as having 1-1 in person time. It gave us the opportunity to bond, have fun, and plan out the future of BestSelf Co.
Giving up comes with negative connotations. Even when considering writing about this topic my emotional self kept trying to think of a way to twist it so I could explain how to avoid giving up anything, especially a goal.

It can be difficult to ditch our goals… it seems like we’re giving up. But sometimes that’s exactly what we need to do to be our best self and achieve success.
Either way, we’re faced with a
You’re probably aware that morning routines are critical to your productivity and well-being. Understanding the things to do in the morning that set up your day for success matter; your morning habits and activities set your mood, energy level and mindset for the rest of your day.
This is important because your daily actions accumulate, determining what you accomplish in the long-run. If you want to become the person you desire and live your dream life, you need to take the right actions every day.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t an easy road. In fact, it can be a downright difficult one, especially without proper time management strategies. Many entrepreneurs never realize as much success as they would like or end up completely fail because they couldn’t meet their goals.
Although it may seem easier to just give up or change your goal, a better approach is to change the approach you use to reach your goals. What you need, in other words, are effective time management strategies, which are among the most critical aspects of achieving better results as an entrepreneur.
