When we think of success, it’s easy for the big achievements to come to mind. The noticeable milestones and momentous check-offs on our list are usually how we measure success. Whilst this may be a way of showing how far we have come, the key to success actually lies in the day to day life. It’s the smaller accomplishments that actually lead to the milestones.

Considering that, the importance of each day becomes essential and something that we absolutely have to get right. Whilst it can be hard to make each day productive, there are ways that we can organize to make sure we make the most of every single one. So, how do successful women schedule their time?

1. They stick to a morning routine

It’s no secret that how you spend your morning sets you up for the rest of the day. For a day packed full of productivity, a successful woman will always stick to a morning routine that suits her. Whether that’s a workout, essential reading or catching up on emails. Sticking to a morning ritual will make your day far more likely to be successful, and help you to feel motivated, as you’ve already accomplished something in the morning.

2. They organize their to-do lists

Whilst we like to think of ourselves as superwomen, sometimes getting everything we want to get done just isn’t possible. However, this doesn’t mean that we can’t still be successful. The women who achieve the most are those that prioritize the most important things first. That way, we get the biggest and most important tasks done first, so we can always feel good about that.

3. They have time for themselves

The resilience of a successful woman is rooted in her ability to give herself time off when she needs it. Whether it’s a nice lunch with her girls, a long bath with candles or just an evening away from the dreaded inbox. A successful woman will always make time for herself at some point during her day. It’s the real secret behind their ability to always look effortless and never burnt out.

4. They recognize setbacks

A successful woman will inevitably have impressive willpower, they are also able to recognize when they have hit a brick wall. Some people will beat themselves up for not progressing, however, a successful woman will look to change her mindset. Whether it’s getting out of the office for fresh air or asking colleagues for their input, a successful woman will refuse to give in to the inevitable daily challenges. Rather, she will accept her situation and tackle it head on.

    I love having the exact same morning routine…. same breakfast (oatmeal with toppings!) same wake up time and makeup. I hate spending a long time deciding what to wear…. decision fatigue is reallllllllll
