Start Early

Thoughts of the week

“Start early”


When do you get most stuff done? Morning for some, evening for others, both for a select majority!

Lifestyle, work, family and location all pay a big part in forming daily routines but personality type can be a more distinctive factor.

‘Morningness’ or ‘eveningness’ vary five main personality traits; conscientiousness, extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness and openness to experience. Your preferred wake up or productivity time will vary depending where you are on the scale with these.

Higher ‘eveningness’ tend to display less intense behaviours of these traits and higher ‘morningness’ tend to display more, but most people exhibit characteristics of both!

Over time people also show a shift from ‘eveningness’ to ‘morningness. This is largely due schedules getting busier, life responsibilities increasing and wanting to do more in a day to increase quality of life.

Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else

We have done so many things over the last ten years as a company….worked with some incredible athletes, learned about many different sports, been to a lot of different countries, taken on endless challenges, celebrated huge success, commiserated huge loss, come up with some great ideas, made handfuls bad decisions…but we’re still going and each day is a better one!

The main reason for success and growth is setting higher goals to achieve more. This now always involves starting something as early as possible to finish sooner. Obstacles can come from anywhere and everywhere which can disrupt progress and set you off track. If you’ve already got started these matter less, if you haven’t they matter more.

Whatever your goals are, wherever you live, however difficult daily life gets we bet you’ll be a lot more productive, happier and content if you start early…
