The way you start your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. Are you waking up in the morning, feeling excited about the things that you are going to get done that day? Or, do you hit the snooze button four or five times because you are dreading the day? If you need a little more motivation to make it a productive day, then it is essential that you are consistent with your morning and evening routines.

Business Coach - AM PM ScheduleAs a business owner, it is your responsibility to take a proactive approach to help your company grow. By choosing your attitude in the morning and sticking with a routine, you can set the tone for the rest of the company.

Morning Routine: Proactively Start the Day

Every business owner has had one of those days where they show up in the office to find a problem, and the rest of the day’s schedule is thrown off trying to correct the problem. These issues are inevitable sometimes, but it is important that you are proactive to take control of the day before it takes control of you.

One of the best things that you can do to get the day started right is to get to the office 30 minutes before your regular time. This extra time will allow you to set your schedule for the day and clear away any tasks that will hold you back from completing your daily goals. Turn off your phone, shut the door, and make sure that others know that you shouldn’t be disturbed during this time.

Evening Routine: Prepare for the Next Day

You would sleep better at night if you wrapped up the day without leaving odds-and-ends that need to be cleaned up in the morning. If it requires an extra 15 or 30 minutes at the computer to complete a few tasks, it is worth the extra time! Look for ways that you can reduce your workload the next day to manage your schedule in an effective way.
