Successful Entrepreneurs Describe Their Day

by Nathan Zachary

It’s the habit of successful people to follow a daily routine. Taking time to design your day can reduce the overwhelm and stress that comes along with failure to achieve your work and personal goals. Though the nature of work can greatly determine whether one sticks to a particular routine, there are some habits such as the morning routine that help kickstart your day with energy. A routine for your average day shouldn’t be boring or rigid but adhering to one can greatly help improve your efficiency and productivity. We asked entrepreneurs and business owners how their average day is and here are the responses.

Follows the same routine:

As a founder of Next Pinnacle, my days start at 5 AM. I am in the gym from 5 AM until 6:30 AM. I shower, get cleaned up, and prepare breakfast by 7 AM. I take my first meetings or calls typically around 7:30-8 AM. The morning consists of client calls and meetings or introductory calls until 11 AM. During the morning meetings and in between, I respond to e-mails and communication to keep other initiatives going. At noon, I try to eat. I prefer to eat with staff, partners, or networks. If we have to eat..might as well eat together. After lunch, I typically take more meetings until 2 PM. After 2 PM, I try to buckle down and respond to all e-mails and move forward with any proposed developments that are needed or additional client initiatives. After dinner, I focus on developing the firm’s social media profile. After that is over my family and I settle in and watch TV or read books to wind down. Then I do it all over again.

Split 80%-20% on growth and whirlwind:

Our business wouldn’t be what it is today if we didn’t spend as much time each day making sure that every member of the team is on the same page. Each day, we want to focus on the most impactful goals and the projects that drive us. Whether I take morning meetings with vendors or advisors or lunch meetings with members of my team, we’re always focused on what’s most important. From there I’ve got my list of takeaways that I’ll spend the next few hours developing into strategies that we can use to capitalize on new industry developments or opportunities that are coming up. Then there’s a slew of whirlwind activities; the grind, or nitty-gritty activities that are simple tasks that have less impact but still need to be completed. I would say that my day is split 80%-20% (at least) on driving our growth through these impact-driven activities and whirlwinds. It’s a nice mix because ending on easily completable tasks means when I get home to my 2 kids and wife – with her busy career – I’m able to wind down easier than if I was focusing on larger activities that require more long-term solutions all day.

Starts with answering and composing emails:

I don’t know if there is an average day for me because our business has a lot going on right now. But for the most part, I try to get an early start on the day, after eating a healthy breakfast. The morning is usually filled with answering and composing emails on various projects we have going on right now. And I usually try to take a mid-morning break. Lunch is usually around noon, and the afternoon could be used for just about anything. I might meet with a potential new business associate, or explore a new media or marketing opportunity. And there’s usually a quick mid-afternoon break as well. I’ll use the late afternoon to tie up any loose ends, and then I’ll usually try to get in some form of physical activity, with ice hockey being one of my main hobbies. And for the most part, the evening is used for rest, and I always try to get a good night’s sleep so I can start fresh the next day.

Mainly consist of alternating between tasks:

I always start my workday by making a cup of tea. This helps me get into work mode. I then open my work journal and look at my todos for the day. I then start with the most important task first so I know the day will have been productive even if I don’t have time to finish my to-do list. I then alternate between tasks that require lots of focus such as writing, copywriting, and marketing; and lighter tasks such as answering emails. Alternating between tasks helps me maintain my energy level throughout the day and get more things done. I generally finish the day by answering emails or doing light SEO tasks such as fixing broken links.

Consists of waking up at 5 am:

My average day consists of waking up around 5 am for meditation and viewing my personal goals. Then I begin a vigorous workout to keep my body and physical strength in alignment with my mental strength and overall business stability. After I shower, I get straight to work. I read for an hour about everything going around in the business and then sit behind my desk and crush the keys. Whether I’m creating content for our website or looking up listings for clients, there’s no losing momentum throughout the day. Finally, I end my evening with a nice meal and usually some more reading. Hop back on the computer for a few more hours then call it a night. I usually set aside about 15 minutes to think about the success of my day tomorrow then fall asleep just to wake up the next day and do it all over again.
