The first few minutes at the office can be the most stressful because there’s a level of anxiety about what you may face: A sudden onslaught of urgent emails; last-minute crises or meetings; a call to stop by the boss’s office; a cranky coworker, and so on. It takes greater self-awareness, a positive mindset, and self-training each morning to counter what feels like negative gravity pulling you down as you face overwhelming demands. Successful people tend to thrive on routine and habits.
Creating consistent habits is largely what makes them successful and a key time for habit-forming practices is at the start of the day.”
Here are 13 things the most successful people do in the first 10 minutes of their workday:
1. They reflect
Achieving your best results requires you to reflect on where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. Successful people build in quiet time and solitude to do this first thing. They ask themselves: ‘What did I accomplish toward my goals so far this week — or last week?’ ‘What is the status of my current project?’ ‘What do I need to accomplish today in light of this?’”
2. They get comfortable
Successful people take a minute at the beginning of the workday to make sure their chair is adjusted properly and the items they frequently access — keyboard, phone, computer mouse — are all in comfortable reach. Ensure that you have proper lighting, your day will go well if you have an ergonomic environment that’s functional.”
3. They organize their workspace area
Not being able to find things is a huge office time waster. So while you may pride yourself on jumping into the fray with no down time, clutter will catch up to you. Facing a clean or cleaner slate on your desk and desktop will better clear your mind for the day’s tasks.
4. They stretch, stand, and walk
Successful people make sure to stretch and get their circulation going before they get into a sedentary sitting position. Consider walking or standing in the first few minutes of your workday. This can give you a feeling of greater control, too, as you tackle the day’s agenda — much as speakers establish authority by standing before their audience.”
5. They review their to-do list and prioritize
Get yourself current on priorities and tasks. Go beyond just making a list, and challenge yourself to create a realistic hierarchy for your projects. It’s vital to put the most important tasks first. Though the least desirable but critical projects are easy to put off first thing in the morning, your energy is strongest then, so that’s the ideal time to confront the most difficult assignments.
6. They visualize success
By envisioning the positive outcomes of various projects at hand, you can work backward and determine the necessary steps to get your desired results. This helps them remember the need to stick to the plan and focus on the things that are truly important and not simply urgent. Mentally running through the day “can also help you see where potential challenges may lie with how you’ve scheduled your day, so you can make the necessary adjustments,” Kerr says.
7. They adjust and map out their day
Successful people review their calendars to assess if anything needs changing or rearranging with how their day is planned and to see if there’s any preparatory work that might need scheduling in before a call or meeting.
8. They anticipate distractions
We all face some of the same distractions at the start of the day, and recognizing them is the first step to mitigating them. These may include low-priority calls, unnecessary optional meetings, chatty coworkers, new incoming emails or texts, social media, or other low-priority notifications — all of which challenge you to focus on your day’s plan.”
9. They say “no”
Successful business professionals know how to mitigate distractions to maximize their first few minutes at their office. They can diplomatically and politely say ‘no’ to colleagues by offering to engage at a later time. If your boss needs you, that is clearly an exception. However, if you have crucial calls to make or meetings to attend, give your boss the heads-up. Being a people pleaser isn’t good for anyone, Generally, no one ends up being pleased, as you can’t do your best work with conflicting priorities.”
10. They block out negativity
Successful people don’t dwell on any challenging events that occurred the previous night or on the morning commute, or other frivolous thoughts. “Compartmentalize by putting them in a separate ‘box’ as you start your week,” Taylor says.
11. They take a temperature read of their staff/coworkers
Strong managers take a moment in the morning to talk briefly with their staff to ensure they seem engaged and motivated. “At a glance, these savvy professionals can often get a cursory reading of the energy level and job satisfaction of their staff,” Taylor says. “If things seem awry, they are best tackled later on in the day.”
12. They smile and laugh
Many successful people I know have a routine of starting their morning with a simple chuckle — whether it’s from a ‘joke of the day’ email they subscribe to, or some tradition they’ve created to give themselves a chance to laugh each morning. Starting their day with a smile has become a must-do for them as a simple way to check their attitude and start with the right frame of mind.
13. They take a moment to be grateful
A great way that successful people start their day is to identify something they’re grateful for, and it may be personal or business-related,” Taylor notes. “It’s motivational and reminds them to put small things in perspective.

What is an industry without a healthy competition? What is fun without rivalry?  In the game of football, they have Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo, in the game of basketball, they have Steph Curry and Lebron  but in the Nigerian music industry we have DAVIDO and WIZKID.

These two have been compared to each other at every stage of their careers with the same question

” Who is the better artiste ?”

Since his collaboration with MI on “Fast Money , Fast Cars”, Ayodeji “Wizkid” Balogun has been soaring to greater heights like he was ordained by God to do music for Nigerians. Wizkid keeps dishing out good vibes like its nothing.

His good voice, stage presence and undeniable good looks always makes him stand out anywhere. After having an  eventful last year which catapulted him to the helm of the industry, getting him recognition both locally and internationally. He is always consistent in every single,collaboration , performance and even advertisement or whatever he sets out to do.

Amidst all the drama with his proud behaviour , Wizkid keeps dishing out good vibes like its nothing.  Jay Z once said “Everybody look at you strange, say you changed , Like you work that hard to stay the same “.     That’s the problem that we have with the talented WIZ,  Coming from humble beginnings and amassing such success at a young age , its only logical it gets to your head but is that enough to make him better than Davido ?

Born in Atlanta Georgia USA, this Omo Baba Olowo has shown that his family affluence isn’t the reason why he is top-notched but he has TALENT written all over him. Since dropping “Back When” with Naeto C five years ago ,Davido has proven to Nigerians times without number that he is better All of them.

His very distinctive voice , charismatic stage performance , flamboyant videos , precise dress sense ,top notch recording always makes you wonder how great you can be when you put your wealth aside and hustle like you have nothing.

He has been releasing chat topping tunes since day one with classy videos to make him a mighty force to reckon with home and internationally.  Davido is one of the few artistes that puts his every energy when it comes to what he loves “MUSIC” and that is why he will keep getting bigger till he takes everyone’s position. Davido makes feel good music and has a humble personality despite his magnanimous celebrity status , that’s probably the only difference between them .

It is very obvious DAVIDO and WIZ are great musicians at all levels with both amassing enough accolades to donate to every ARSENAL player and staff of the club . To me , the rivalry between the both can be broken into this simple term “Hustle till your role model becomes your rival”.

We all know who the role model and rival is in this context.  I may pick WIZ over DAVIDO but I used to worry about who is better between them then I realized I have only 10k in my bank account and I am Older than Davido.
