Train Your Brain for Success

It is possible to train your brain for success. There is a difference in thinking between being successful and wanting to be successful. Besides taking actionable steps towards your goal, it is imperative to follow these three steps to train your brain to accept success.

First, do any creative work on your ‘to do’ list first. If you wait to work on creative tasks, you will find yourself blocked- especially if you wait until the end of the day. If you need to work on a creative project, get to it right away and make this a habit. Procrastination is not a key to success.

Next, eliminate the need to multi-task. Contrary to popular belief, multi-tasking is ineffective and lowers quality and productivity. Focus on one thing and only one thing at time. Focusing on too many things means you are missing something, which isn’t a key to success.

Finally, value your time. Don’t be afraid to decline a lunch meeting here and there or to say ‘no’ to a requested meeting. Prioritize your schedule first and you are already on the right track.

Until next time,
