Business Consultant | Starting Work Early Is It Crucial


There are many things that business consultant recommends entrepreneurs do. In order to be as successful in business as possible. And one of those things is setting up their calendar properly.

Doing the calendar planning at the same time as creating their business plan can be very effective. Since it will allow business owners to see what kind of hours they need to put into their business.

In order to accomplish all of the strategic priorities. That they are outlining as necessary to do. In order to succeed, as written in their business plan.

When they are a part of creating their schedule says business consultant. As well as understand all of the strategic priorities that are written in their business plan.

They will start to see how necessary it is. To work twelve hour day. However, one mistake that many business owners often make.

Is thinking that they are going to be able to work twelve hour day by getting to work at 8 o’clock or 9 o’clock in the morning. Instead of getting up at 5 o’clock in the morning and working from six in the morning to six in the evening.

They think that nighttime hours are going to be just as productive as hours that they have worked in the morning. And this is actually not the case for many reasons says business consultant.

The first thing that business owners need to take into consideration. Is that their ability to think is actually limited. And as they make decisions, solve problems, and do work.

There ability to think critically, and do more work diminishes throughout the day. Which is why most people do their best work first thing in their morning. Before they have used up any of their intellectual capacity.

Therefore, when business owners try to do all of their most critical thinking tasks at the very end of their day. Not only will they get less accomplished. But they will get a lower quality of work done.

Because they will have used as much of their intellectual capacity during their day. Which is why they should get up earlier, so that they can have their critical thinking tasks at the beginning of their day.

And while many business owners also say that they do their best thinking at night because they are night owls. And they are going to have a more difficult time waking up in the morning.

There are other reasons that why working a twelve hour day from six in the morning to six at night is important. And that reason is actually seeing their friends and family in the evenings.

Even if they are night out, and they do not mind staying up late. They likely will not be able to eat dinner with their spouse or children. Or work on their hobbies, or see their friends.

If they are consistently getting home at 9 o’clock or 10 o’clock at night. Which is why even night owls may find it most beneficial to get their day over with by 6 o’clock. So that they can spend their evenings doing whatever they like.

Business owners often want to give themselves the test advantages to succeed in their business says business consultant. And one of those important habits to get into. Is getting up at 5 o’clock in the morning to work a twelve hour day.

The reason why this is so important. Is because not only will a business owner do their best work first thing in the morning. But they will also be able to prepare for meetings better by doing it in the same day.

If entrepreneurs think that they can work from 9 o’clock in the morning ten line o’clock at night. There prep time for meetings will be in the evening. The day before their client meeting.

Which is not as effective. As reviewing meeting information just a couple hours for the client meeting. Being more prepared will impress the client a lot more. Which will result in a better quality meeting.

And if a business owner thinks they are going to be able to prepare for their meeting during the day. They are likely going to be interrupted a lot more than they like. Which will result in a less effective review.

As well, business consultant says entrepreneurs need to understand that getting to work at 6 o’clock in the morning. Is going to be a lot faster since they do not have to deal with rush-hour traffic.

Not only does rush-hour traffic take a longer time. Which means business owners are spending more time that than they probably want in their vehicle. Especially after they start working a twelve hour day.

But also, business owners need to understand that rush-hour traffic increases people’s stress levels. So not only will they arrive at work already stressed out.

But that high level of stress activates an emotional response. Which decreases their ability for critical thinking. So rush-hour traffic can be very detrimental to an entrepreneur’s ability to work effectively.

In addition to that, business consultant says business owners can develop a sense of accomplishment. By achieving their first goal of the day. Which is waking up and getting out of bed at 5 o’clock in the morning.

When they accomplished their first task of the day successfully. That can actually be incredibly motivating to business owners. That can propel them through the next several tasks at work.

Since people develop feelings of motivation from accomplishing tasks. Getting that first important task done. Can help them feel even more motivated during the day.

And finally, it is very important that entrepreneurs are arriving at work before their staff. So that they can show by example. The importance of getting to work on time.

And that a business owner is not going to ask the staff to do anything. That they themselves are not already willing to do.

And that leadership by example can help encourage staff to follow suit. And be just as motivated as the business owner is as well.
