StartUp Tip #5: Make your bed

URBAN_ALT_7

If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day.

It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.

Completing one task well in the morning gives you a sense of accomplishment and courage to go on to accomplish other tasks.

It is not about the task per se [making the bed] that is important but the “completing the task” that is more important. Making your bed is a much easier task that you can complete within 3 minutes at the beginning of your day.

By the end of the day, that one task completed in the morning will have turned into many tasks completed throughout the day.

Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.

Ps: Unfortunately most people look at making their beds a chore or something that should be relegated to the housekeeper, they look at making their own beds as a low-level task and therefore don’t do it missing out on the easy wins in the morning.
