20 things successful people refuse to do

Last night I read an article that was shared by this woman I went to high school with, it was a list of things that successful people refuse to do. And I was honestly shocked at how many of those things I do. So I decided that if I want to be a success, and I would need to stop doing things that are harming me in the long run.

The first tangible thing I was going to change was number 2 on their list.

2. They don't start their days without plans. Successful people know that in order to stay on top of work and become successful, they need to be disciplined and be smart with how they manage their time. In order to do this, they plan their days ahead, putting together a to-do list at the start of the day  --  what needs to be done and in what order. Not only are they going to make sure that they don't miss out on any important task or meeting, but also optimize their time for the optimal performance.

The first thing I do whenever I'm trying to re-calibrate myself is start making lists. So I downloaded the DO app for my phone and typed in a plan of things I needed to accomplish today. I put down four things and I'm accomplishing them. I've stuck with three weeks of daily blog posting, it will be officially a habit tomorrow, I am now going to make planning my days a habit too.

Write a blog post - DONE
