 Want to Know How Successful People Start Their Day? Well Here's The Answer You've Been Looking For

It has been revealed that, successful people stop checking emails, get out of meetings and think about the tasks they and their colleagues need to complete during the first hour of their work day.

A recent profile by business news website fastcompany.com analysed what accomplished business people do at the start of their day in order to be more productive, more organised and more effective.

Firstly, don't waste time checking emails or having meetings like Tumblr founder David Karp tries hard not to check his email until 10am whileKeepcup founder Abigail Forsyth tries not to have a meeting before 10am, and instead spends time going around the office and saying hello to everyone in the business.

Secondly, do the worst thing first - time management book 'Eat That Frog' points to a Mark Twain saying that if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, you've got it behind you for the rest of the day and nothing else looks that bad, Fast Company reported.

This means that if you pick the task you are dreading the most and get it out of the way early, so you can focus on more enjoyable things for the rest of the day, News.com.au reported.

Thirdly, take a moment to pick what's important - when we start our work day, we usually have a number of outstanding tasks from the day before and with new ones cropping up as the day rolls on, it can be easy to let things slide.

Fourthly, think about those around you - it's easy to get bogged down in the tasks we have to complete individually, but it's important to think about how your work affects those around you.

Next, remind yourself of overall goals. Siimon Reynolds says it's important to read your goals for the year every morning.

Lastly, take advantage of the commute - if you're sitting on the bus or the train for an hour on your way to work, use that time to get organised for the day ahead.
