Daily Habits to Improve Your Performance at Work

Feb 26, 2024Speaking

Alright, let’s cut through the noise. Ollie Ollerton here. In this blog, I’m going to talk straight about habits that aren’t just fluff—they’re the real deal. Habits that push you to your limits and sometimes, just a little bit beyond. Because that’s where the magic happens, right?

Let’s get straight into it. (Like I said, no fluff!).


1. Morning Rituals

You don’t need to be a Special Forces veteran to know that how you start your day can set the tone for the whole 24-hour show. I’m talking about a morning ritual that primes you for the day. It’s not about chanting mantras (unless that’s your thing, no judgment here). It’s about setting up a routine that gets your head in the game. Whether it’s a quick workout, a healthy breakfast, or just a few minutes of planning your day, make it count.

2. Prioritise

You’ve heard it from me before, “A plan backed by discipline and process becomes reality.” It’s about nailing those priorities. You’ve got a list as long as your arm, I get it. But what’s going to move the needle? What’s going to take you from where you are to where you want to be? That’s what you focus on. Tackle the big rocks first; the gravel can wait.

3. Controlled Breathing

As a species are wired negatively, and there’s no getting around it. Those 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts racing through your mind? Most are telling you why you can’t do something.

But here’s a tool for your mental toolbox: controlled breathing. It’s not just some hippie trick; it’s science. Taking a moment to breathe deeply can reset your stress levels, sharpen your focus, and get you back in control. Before a meeting, a presentation, or just when the day is getting too heavy, take a breath. It’s a game-changer.


So, there you have it. Three habits. They might not sound revolutionary, but if implemented consistently, they’ll move mountains. And remember, it’s all about embracing that discomfort. That’s where growth happens. That’s where you start turning the every day into the extraordinary.

‘Til next time, keep pushing those boundaries.
