People who are highly productive take a moment to safeguard their own agendas before allowing other people dictate their workday. Take control of how you start your day every single day.

Imagine that the moment you open your eyes in the morning, a bottomless vortex appears on your nightstand and instantly sucks you in, setting your entire day into a tailspin.

Now imagine that happening every. Single. Day.

That’s how the average person starts every morning when they reach over to check their Facebook after they’ve turned off the alarm. That’s an especially easy trap to fall into for the millions who use their cell phone as an alarm clock; if the phone is the first thing they grab to turn off the alarm, it only takes one more tap or swipe to start their day by seeing what their friends have posted overnight. Then, they check 30 e-mails, 30 ideas from others, before setting their own priority.

What do successful people do differently?

The distinction of people who are highly productive, who get things done in the world, who greet the world according to their own agendas, isn’t some secret recipe. What they do different is take a moment before they log on to their email, before they update their social media status, and just decide what their day is going to be all about.

And my challenge for you today is simple: Before you allow other people’s priorities to dictate your workday, take a moment to safeguard your own agenda. Make sure you reach the Promised Land of your goal by first setting your own priorities and agenda for the day.

And if you do this, you can break the gravity of the nightstand vortex and take control of your morning from the very beginning.

Every. Single. Day.
