Running a business can be difficult and life-consuming, from the moment the alarm goes off until your head hits the pillow. A leaders day can be filled with solving problems, overcoming problems and making difficult decisions. Many leaders are not prepared for what it takes to run a business well.

One hour is more important to the leader than the other for the leader to maintain energy, focus and effectiveness. That hour consists of two thirty-minute blocks, one in the morning and one at the end of the day.

That hour should be filled with inspiring reading, time reflection, capturing ideas and concentrated thinking. All of this will help the leader grow in their understanding of themselves and the world they live in. Small habits can have a big impact on a leader and the organization he leads.

Developing a motivational morning routine

The first 30 minutes of the leader’s day is one of the most critical time blocks. Many make the mistake of checking emails, watching the news or checking social media as one of the first habits of the day. These actions will often lead to someone responding to the emergencies of others rather than working on their priorities. The above activities can also drain the leader’s energy instead of giving him the strength to start the day effectively and focused.

Here’s a powerful morning routine process that will help any leader start the day in the right frame of mind:

  • 10 minutes of motivational and inspirational content reading
  • Meditate for four minutes on a life principle or thought
  • Write down their thoughts and ideas in a journal for 10 minutes
  • Four minutes in which they review their top priorities of the day
  • Two minutes of repeating a fundamental affirmation for the day

Developing an exciting evening routine

The last 30 minutes of the day are also vital to a leader’s life. How a person ends a day can determine how well they sleep and how effectively they prepare for the next day. Many leaders struggle with getting a good night’s sleep, which over time will be reflected in their energy levels, decision making and attitude towards their peers. Developing an effective routine at the end of the day can be essential to running a business well. The right last 30 minutes of each day can give the leader peace of mind, focus and energy to grow their passion and vision for their organization.

Here’s a process for an engaging evening routine that will help any leader end the day in the right frame of mind:

  • 10 minutes of thoughtful and peaceful content reading
  • Four minutes to watch their breakthroughs or victories of the day
  • Write down their thoughts and ideas in a journal for 10 minutes
  • Four minutes to set their top goals for the next day
  • Two minutes of practice listening by being still and quiet

This 10-4-2 model for morning and evening routines can change a leader’s life. The right morning and evening routine will help them gain momentum, grow energy and gain wisdom to lead themselves and their team even in the most challenging of times.
