Summary of “15 Daily Habits Highly Successful People Have”

“Every day, I dedicate a period of about 30 to 60 minutes when I turn off all electronics, and most of the time this aligns with my daily exercise. This daily digital detox allows my mind to wander to what really matters, eliminating any distractions from others. I use this time to check in with myself, set personal priorities and focus on important issues for both myself and my business. I’ve found that these small breaks give me a sense of peace and help me better navigate everyday business decisions.”
Jake Crandall, founder and owner of Oklahoma-based Okie CrossFit and Okie CrossFit Tahlequah who once weighed 300 pounds and has since helped 13 people lose more than 100 pounds and over 100 people lose more than 50 pounds.
“If you can’t see well, you can’t work well. Stay productive by giving your eyes a break throughout the day so they aren’t strained from focusing on your computer screen all day.”
Alex Maleki, VP of business development at tech incubator Idealab which has created more than 150 companies with more than 45 IPOs and acquisitions.
“A most important habit of success is the monitoring of daily nutrition. But by that, I am not talking about what successful people eat or drink. I am talking about what they feed themselves through what they, read, what they listen to, who they talk to and what they watch. In every day, the truly great ones I have had the chance to work with use a piece of that day to feed themselves something that will give them an inspirational advantage over those they’re competing against. Whether it is looking for inspirational quotes, watching videos of people offering lessons on excellence, or reading a chapter in a book that will help them in their journey, there is a piece of every day that is committed to growth.”
Adam Fingerman, cofounder and chief experience officer for ArcTouch, a San Francisco-based mobile app development company that has designed more than 400 custom apps for more than 150 clients, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to influential startups.
“It comes down to taking care of yourself-your body, mind and spirit. I have a regular exercise regimen. I start every day with a 40- to 50-minute workout: a combination of cardio, core strength and resistance training. During the day, you need to eat great food that fuels you without robbing energy, drink lots of water and stay hydrated. It’s amazing how much water your body needs during the day.”
Hunter Muller, president and CEO of HMG Strategy, LLC, an international network of more than 300,000 technology leaders, search executives, and technology partners which has hosted more than 70 live events in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
