Once he jumps “into the fire” of the day at around 9.00 a.m. he takes care of anything that must be addressed immediately leaving time in the afternoon to collaborate with people. “Starting my day early, making it to the office without any distractions definitely leads into a more productive and successful day. Planning in the morning is crucial to ensure the day runs smooth and avoids any ‘fire fighting,'” adds Jamie Talbot, Managing Director of Skyline Marketing Ltd.

However, whilst long-term goals and aspirations are important, these must also be solidified with short and mid term goals to ensure proper execution.
