26 Daily Habits Highly Successful People Have (and the Rest of us Probably Don't)

You can't get to the top by behaving like everyone else.

Highly successful people don't rise to the top by behaving like everyone else. They understand that achieving great things means getting more done, taking excellent care of their bodies and thinking in ways which promote greatness. Here are the daily habits more than two dozen executives say helped them get where they are today.

Here are  few:

1. WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN.
"I've found it's really helpful just to write everything down. It lets you collect fun or creative ideas you have for later to revisit them at a later time. Even if a lot of the things you are writing down at the time don't seem like good ideas, they may be a good inspiration or relevant later at a different time or context. Here quantity can lead to quality. If you are always writing down the ideas, some of them will turn out good."

5. TAKE INVENTORY OF ROUTINE TASKS THAT CAN BE OUTSOURCED TO OTHERS.
"I'm constantly asking myself if what I'm doing or what's on my calendar is the highest and best use of my time and talent. If not, I look to delegate that task to a trusted member of our team. This allows me to use my time more effectively, but also saves my mental energy for the big problems we're trying to solve. "

10. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES BUT DON'T WALLO IN THEM.
"Entrepreneurship is a long arc that transcends any one project or company. Strategic missteps and tactical errors are a part of growth and leadership and can often provide the most powerful insights and correction for future success. It's important to lean from your mistakes.

Science Just Gave a Brilliant Reason For Not Wearing a Tie.

Researchers at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Germany thought they'd see whether there were any physical effects of wearing a tie, especially if it's tied tightly, as many of the button-up like it.

What they found is that wearing a tie squeezes the veins in your head and restricts the flow of blood to the brain by 7.5 percent, when compared to those who don't wear ties.
This the researchers describe as a statistically significant difference.
Indeed, some suggest that this could even be fatal for those with inordinately high blood pressure.

Last week one of the tips was to Get Physical. This morning as this email is being sent I am competing the Stone Harbor Triathalon. This will be my second of the summer season. If you see a Sunday Sales Blast next week that means I survived!

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
