Focus on yourself. Better understand yourself, what makes you tick, what drives you, what is your potential.

2 months ago | From Medium | Author: Joshua Davidson

Some ask for my morning routines. Other ask what my average day looks like. Why does it matter? I’m not speaking in hyperbole, I mean it. I mean, on the one hand, I get it.
You want to hear others experiences and see how you can adapt it to your own. It makes sense; it is a great playbook that on the surface, I do believe in. On the other hand, how in the world is this going to make a difference for you?
Why is someone’s work ethic, output, habits, going to impact yours? Is it going to be beneficial to you, your career, your business, or are you only procrastinating from something else? Something you should be doing?
Better yet, do you need to know this information or do you already know the keys to your success? I am willing to bet the latter, which is something I have learned over the last year.
Most of us, and arguably I’d suggest all of us, know what it takes to be a success. We are all aware what makes us tick. We all know ourselves better than anyone else.
I know how many hours a night of sleep I need to feel alert. I know what I need to do to become more knowledgeable. I know what I need to do in order to be productive. I know what I need to do in order to see results to what I plan to accomplish.
I don’t need a guru to tell me that. I don’t need to understand the habits of 1,000 successful people to understand that. I’m not suggesting not to take advice. I’m also not suggesting to be a student of entrepreneurship.

Don’t focus on the habits, routines, behaviors. We all have our own strengths and weaknesses. Focus on yourself instead. Better understand yourself, what makes you tick, what drives you, what is your potential.
Ask the questions that need answers. How to scale your company in a particular manner? How to find the right talent? How to handle a situation another entrepreneur, or executive was able to navigate. Those are questions based on experiences, not habits.

Too many of us punt the hard questions and answer with fluff. Just the cliche, here are the top ten reasons to wake up at 5AM remarks.
Well, guess what. I know just as many successful entrepreneurs who prefer to sleep in as I do early-risers. What time you wake up in the morning isn’t a character trait to success.
Start asking yourself the right questions, when relevant. Start asking others the right questions, in the right context. That is how you will see results. That is how you will grow. That is how you will reach your potential.

Not long ago, I was trying to watch a video on YouTube. I got the expected “5-second till skipping” countdown and had my mouse hovering over the skip link, but the video was interesting. I laughed, so I figured I’d give it another few seconds to see what the product was all about. I ended up watc...  ...Read more
