According to the accountant Tom Corley, who spent three years studying the rich and the differences in habits with respect to people who are not wealthy, discovered that those who have become millionaires from scratch take advantage of 240 minutes more than everyone else.
How is the daily routine of the most productive millionaires
According to the accountant’s research, every millionaire uses ‘free’ time to do activities that make them more productive. They occupy their time in:
More than 80% spend 60 minutes a day setting goals and dreams
The rich carry out this activity outside of their working hours. They are dedicated to set new goals and plan the ways to achieve them. They also spend time on an additional occupation or creating one or more additional sources of income.
Almost 80% spend 60 minutes learning something new or improving themselves
Rich people spend an hour a day doing learn a new skill, increase your knowledge in a specific area, or improve your career.
Almost everyone gets 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a day
Aerobic exercise has multiple physical and mental benefits: it helps to reduce the effects of stress, increases oxygen delivery to the brain, strengthens the heart, reduces the risk of osteoporosis and cholesterol. For the rich, Exercise is important because health translates into fewer sick days and, therefore, higher productivity and more opportunities to make money.
Almost 90% spend 30 minutes a day building strong relationships
Most of the people Corley studied spent most of these 240 minutes on build strong relationships and nurture and strengthen existing ones. This time involves everything from going to eat with someone to calling an important person for any reason. That kind of call is essential for ‘networking’ because personal events generate strong emotions and important memories.
“The rich who have created their entire fortune from scratch are not superhuman. They also sleep and have leisure time, and they also have days of not wanting to get off the couch. The difference lies in moderating that downtime and sticking to productive routines. According to this study and the results and experience of these wealthy people, how you spend your time each day determines the financial circumstances of your life and has cumulative benefits that will pay off at some point“Corley assured.
