Being an entrepreneur is exceedingly challenging, and no matter how much people romanticize with its prospect and treat entrepreneurship as high status, it would ultimately buckle their knees as soon as they are met with the challenges it brings along. What separates a successful entrepreneur from others is their sheer ability to manage their work, ensure they devote a credible amount of time to the most important things in their lives, and have a strong work ethic.
Some of the busiest entrepreneurs are setting remarkable examples out there regarding how they are able to manage their time and still lead their multi-billion dollar corporations towards profitability with every passing year. It may seem obnoxious to some, yet certainly, their examples remain quite inspirational for all.
Adam Morris is a great example when it comes to entrepreneurship. It may seem that he has absolutely no time on his hands at all, yet he manages a large portfolio of businesses with unprecedented success. Adam is from Canada where he is mostly known for operating his real-estate development and investment firm called Copperblock Capital Inc. He serves as the CEO of this company.
Adam previously headed Prosperus North, a private equity fund company. In addition, he runs the Climb Group which is a top player in the oil, gas, and construction industry.
That is not all; Adam is also very active when it comes to CSR activities. In 2015, he founded the Canadian Family Foundation (CANFAM), an organization which helped immigrants and refugees settle in the country during the Syrian refugee crisis. Now, the foundation has switched its attention to improving animal welfare and senior welfare.
With that being said, here is how Adam Morris, and other successful entrepreneurs like him are able to do so much in such little time:
Setting up priorities – It is said that in order to have a successful day, you are supposed to have a perfect morning. But what is a “perfect morning”? For the busiest professionals, it would simply be a morning of getting things done right. Brian Tracy, an American entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker, and trainer highly endorses the idea of doing the most important tasks at hand first thing in the morning. Once we have the contentment of having the most important things done beforehand, we tend to be more relieved and our brain releases endorphins which keep us in the driving seat for the rest of the day. Thus, you will be ten times more productive and able to save a good amount of time.
Exercise – It may sound like a cliché but the busiest entrepreneurs always spare some hours in exercising. Even the President of the United States—one of the busiest men in the world—is required to stay fit and work out every day, so it is no question as to why you should not. Your mind and body are interdependent, so if you take care of your body, the mind will pick up on it and vice versa. This way, you would be more successful in getting more done in a limited amount of time without compromising on the quality of performance.
80/20 Rule – It states that 80 percent of the job is done by 20 percent of the effort. This theory may sound amazing in theory but in practice, it pays off even more.
