One of the most proven ways to develop as an effective leader is to model those that effectively lead already, essentially “stealing” their successful daily habits and making them your own.
Successful and effective leaders always have a handful of daily routines that they follow through with religiously, as that’s part of what makes them so effective as leaders to begin with. Daily habits reinforce the behavior that you are looking to model, allowing you to really kind of ingrain these habits until they become automatic.
Here are some of the most important things effective leaders do every single day, the kinds of things that you are going to want to begin to embrace on a daily basis as well!
Clear your deck
More and more folks across the world are really starting to embrace everything that meditation has to offer. This practice is no longer thought of as some kind of “earthy crunchy” waste of time, but instead is now seen as a critical tool for peak performance and something that the world’s greatest leaders do – consciously or subconsciously – every morning to “clear the deck”.
As a leader, you are going to need every single drop of mental bandwidth you can manage on a daily basis. You don’t want to have any kind of “nonsense” pouring into your mind and sapping you of your mental energy, your willpower, or your focus.
By clearing your deck every morning with meditation (10 or 15 minutes of focused time spent before doing anything else that morning) you are able to open your bandwidth and really maximize your focus.
Create clear and concise plans
Great leaders are able to effectively lead anyone and everyone they have underneath them not because of some superpower of charisma or charm (even though many of them possess these qualities), but instead because they create clear and concise plans that are then communicated to everyone down the line.
Ineffectual leaders create fuzzy plans and ideas without any real heading or direction and they pay the price. It’s absolutely impossible to get to exactly where you want to go without first knowing exactly where that is in the first place.
Just as you would leave home for a road trip without knowing your ultimate destination (and following the coordinates in your GPS exactly there) you cannot expect to win the game of business without having clear and concise plans that allow you to create your own business GPS.
Focus on your strengths and delegate your weaknesses
There are some that believe you need to have nothing but strengths in this world, but it’s critical for you to understand that this is an impossibility that will only leave you feeling wasted, worn out, and depleted on a daily basis.
Sure, you’ll want to develop your weaknesses as best you are able to – inasmuch as you are able to – but for the most part you should be focusing entirely on leveraging your strengths as a leader every single day and delegating your weaknesses to those that are strong in those areas.
This is a surefire way for success and allows you to achieve much more than you ever would have been able to otherwise.
