Dovilė DaugvilaitėGetting things done in project management | 1st woman Human IPO in BalticsSome time ago
Hey! This will be my first insight, so make sure you read it to the very end. 😁🤞🏽
I am sure that the best investment we can make nowadays is investment in personal growth. And time.
The less time we have, the more expensive it gets, right?
Have you already heard about possibility to invest as less as couple of cents into the time and potential of the person you believe in?
Imagine you would have invested into Elon Musk’s time 30 years ago. Today it would be worth a lot more!
The same you can do today - on humanipo.app. It works similar way to stock exchange - just that you trade human’s time.
My initial public offering is going live on 11th of November 12 pm EDT.
There are many more amazing people there too!
Make sure to check it out. #humanipo
Why do you even wake up @5AM?
Early mornings for me used to be :
A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep.
B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.)
C. Trips to the hospital.
So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun.
What my early mornings are now?
I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;))
As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros:
A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies.
B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.”
C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;)
When not to get up early?
PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no.
That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early.
As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm.
Thanks for your time❤️
What are you afraid to do but know you should?
Everyone has fears. Some have more than others.
I have always had many fears in my life: fear of failure, embarrasing myself, etc...
One mindset that has really helped me to face fears is this:
“Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
Because, what we fear doing most, is usually what we most need to do!
I was terrified of taking a sales job at 19 years old, but I knew that was something that would be most beneficial for me in that moment to grow as a person.
I remember my first day at the job. I got only 2-3 hours of sleep the night before because I was so anxious and excited at the same time. And then making that first sales approach - I was afraid, but I still did it and it actually went pretty well. And as they say, the more you face your fears, the easier it gets.
So next time you feel fear. Remember: “Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
