What do Successful Entrepreneurs Do Daily? We asked Eleven, Bank of America Small Business Online, June 4, 2019
“First thing every morning I check my email, review my schedule and task list before the open of the business day.”
When asked what good habits of an entrepreneur means Essergy CEO Jill Dominguez replied with 3 simple daily routines.
1. First thing every morning I check my email, review my schedule and task list before the open of the business day (which means 5 a.m. PT, since my clients are all over the U.S.). This practice keeps me organized on what can be a complex schedule of activity with several projects happening at once [and dealing with] many team members.
2. Every evening I update and review my company task list with “To Do’s,” each color coded according to urgency with a drop-dead date. Every team member who is involved with a task is asked for an update or status regarding the task with the corresponding date.
3. I write everything down in my notebook. It is with me at all times. I prefer taking handwritten notes, as it does not require me to look away for long periods. I am a firm believer in eye contact, and when [you take notes on] a tablet or phone, it seems as if you are not paying attention to the meeting. The notes are the basis of our digital archiving system for the company. All notebooks are archived chronologically; I have notebooks going back 27 years. I doubt that is necessary, but I have been asked to go back and check on an issue or conversation for a client many years later, and recalling details is much easier when looking at my own notes.
