People often wonder how they can be extraordinary entrepreneurs. It’s simple: To be successful, we need to foster successful habits.

- Manage your time effectively. Create lists and planners to organize yourself.
- Focus on yourself. Take a little bit of time to enjoy yourself. You need to be relaxed if you want to get things done properly.
- Pick up a hobby.
- Spend time with friends and family.
- Exercise, exercise and exercise! A healthy body means a healthy mind and that leads to good decision making.
These are just a few habits that would allow you to prosper. We compiled for you a couple of practices of the most successful entrepreneurs from around to world so that you know what they do to perform:
For Elon Musk, that’s scheduling his entire day in five-minute blocks. That way, he will get the most out of every second. Mark Zuckerberg likes to wear the same shirt, pants and sweatshirt every day, minimizing choices so he can focus on larger tasks.
Successful entrepreneurs Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates put reading books at the top of their to-do lists. In fact, Warren Buffett spends most of his day reading. And Bill Gates says he considers that about one book a week is achievable.
Along with reading, exercise is another important way to boost productivity and creativity. Virgin Group founder Richard Branson wakes up at 5 a.m. to swim, kite surf or play tennis.
Having a strong, optimistic and flexible mindset is also the key to success. When you have the will, there is nothing in the world that you cannot accomplish! All you need to do is believe and then make it happen. As Steve jobs once said, “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
