Transcript / MP3
What are the daily and or weekly habits that deliver you the highest ROI return on investment? Well, in this video, I want to break down my highest ROI habits. Let's get it.
And that guys, Greg here with all agency at all, agency.com and I wanted ...to do something a little bit different today. The number of times I get asked both from new clients and as well as, you know, people on the YouTube channel and or in our free Facebook group about my habits and like what my day to day looks like it's too high to count. That's why I'm creating this video because now I'll just share this video. Now I could go into my daily routine and all that stuff, but that's actually a separate video. I want to do extract kind of the handful of things that I think I do daily and weekly that have helped me build a seven figure business, thus really the highest ROI return on investment habits that have helped me get to where I've got to and live the life that I live, which I isn't extravagant by any means, but I love my life and I've been able to build a seven figure business doing it.
And I think many of you could adopt all of these habits very, very quickly and see a pretty quick return on your investment. Now, if you're new here, welcome to the channel. I release a new video every single Thursday, and we also have a free Facebook group for digital and creative agency owners that are looking to grow and scale. If you want to join that group, go ahead and check out the link in the description below, or just visit all agency.com forward slash group a. Well, let's just jump right in. Shall we? So the first habit is waking up before five 15 in the morning, every single day. Yes. Every single day. That's the weekends as well. Every single morning I wake up and then when I wake up, I actually post on Instagram with like a little timestamp. This morning was four 45. There's a few days here and there where it's like five 30, but I'm really consistent with really being up before 5:15 AM.
Now, Y you've probably heard a lot of people that wake up early. Um, I've read tons of books about successful people, billionaires, and literally in every article that you can read on forums about the habits and rituals of the wealthy and the most successful people in the world, waking up early as one of them. And I know some people are night owls. That's just never worked out for me. I find that those few hours in the morning before my kids get up, allow me to take care of me and make me kind of prime myself and even kind of prepare for the rest of the day, have the energy to tackle the rest of the day. Anything that can come my way and really feel like, you know, that analogy of put your mask on. First, those few hours are super critical for me to win the morning.
So I wake up at five 15, almost every single day. Now the key to this, as you could imagine is going to bed early. I get messages from my family. Like, how do you wake up? So early I'm me and my wife are usually in bed and asleep by nine 30 at the latest. So I get a good amount of hours each and every week, uh, original every night because we go to bed early. So if you go to bed early, you can get seven and a half to eight hours of sleep and still be up before most of the rest of the world is awake. So capitalize on that. So it's not just, I'm sleeping for two hours or three hours. I'm getting a good night's rest. I feel energized. And in most cases now I wake up before my alarm even goes off.
Number two is I eat the same breakfast daily. I really switched between two to three meals when I have breakfast. So it eliminates the thinking, what am I going to eat? What am I going to have this morning? I really mix it up between, you know, primarily two different meals and the ingredients are ready. And so when it's time for me to eat something, I just jumped right into that habit. The number of decisions that you have to make in any given day, especially as a business owner are extremely high. So I'm trying to reduce as much friction and as many decision-making points as possible. So eating the same thing in the morning allows me to breeze through that morning routine. I get to the house, get the kids to school and get to the office and in a kind of a streamline, you know, less effort, you know, low, low energy kind of way.
And it's just allowed me to, I think be as productive as I am. I don't know if you eat breakfast. I know some people that fast or do all these crazy things, but I like to have a breakfast in the morning and keeping it simple. And the same thing every single day is a quick way to do that. Number three is batch team meetings. I do them on Monday. I don't think it necessarily matters what day you do them. You might not have a team, so that might not even be relevant, but as you're growing your business and you have team members, I've found that batching all of my team meetings, which makes for a very busy Monday is one of the most powerful things that I can do because as our business grows, the business success depends more and more on me being a leader than any sort of technician.
So by starting the week strong and having all of our team meetings, we have a sale, we have our sales team meeting. We have a executive leadership meeting. We have our full team huddle. We have our marketing meeting. We have our meeting with our client success team. And then I also have a series of one-on-one meetings that rotate every other week. So I have one-on-one meetings with direct reports. All of those happen on Monday at some, some days it's eight meetings. Some days it's, you know, nine or 12 meetings, they're all happening on Monday, but that puts my team into momentum so that everyone can be unstuck to start the week and go after the core things that they need to focus on. And it gives me the rest of the week for the most part to create, create content and videos like this, and stay out of tons and tons of meetings so that I can focus on my genius, which is content creation and creating frameworks, serving our clients.
So that leads me to number four, which 48 hours until fun. So here's the deal with this one as an entrepreneur, if that's you, you probably have big lofty goals, whether it's for the year or for three to five years. And sometimes those goals can feel heavy, like weight on your shoulders, and you could probably get pretty down in the dumps by feeling like you're not there. And so if you're constantly looking at, you know, this big goal that you're nowhere near yet, even though it's like gonna be, you know, three to five years to get there, it could start to wear on you. Maybe I'm the only one, but that did to me. So what I like to do is I like to have something fun or something that I'm looking forward to scheduled out at a minimum every 48 hours from the moment that I'm in.
So you look at my calendar, 48 to 72 hours. There is something I'm looking forward to on Mondays. I have my workouts on Wednesdays. I have my workouts. Um, we typically have like a family pizza night on Fridays. I get to go not and biking Friday afternoon and or Saturday or Sunday. So there's always something I get to look at for in, in the, you know, forward in the week, no more than 48 hours that I know is going to be exciting, uh, of reenergizing refreshing for me, that allows me to kind of unplug and disconnect from thinking about business so that I can come back whole the next day. So if you don't have any sort of rituals or things that you're kind of putting inside of your week, like, like date night is one of them could easily be something that you start adding right now each and every week, so that you have something to look forward to and get you excited and get you through each and every week towards that bigger goal.
Number five is to meditate. Um, I use the calm app. I don't know if you're a big meditation person I do for five minutes. Um, and it's perfect for me. 20 minutes seems like overkill to me. And in my opinion, I don't think there's any wrong way to meditate. I think the only wrong way to meditate is to not meditate, but one of the first things I do when I wake up, I go downstairs and I meditate for five minutes and I read somewhere, I forget which book, because a lot of them talk about meditation and doing it in the morning. But if you win your mind, you can win the day. And I, I know I wake up with tons of thoughts, conversations, and I'm going to have to have that day with team members or clients or whatnot. You can easily get stressed.
And so if my mind is very chaotic in the morning, I need to calm it down right out of the gate. And I've found that by calming my mind, first thing allows me to kind of win over my mind if I can, if I can win my mind, I can, I can handle anything else that comes my way during the day. So that's why I meditate. Number six is to journal. I used to do five minute journal. Now I just use the, uh, day one app on my phone. Um, it allows me to take a picture or upload other images, things like that, record audio. I like to take a photo from the day and then just quickly journal what's going on in my life. Things I'm looking forward to things I'm feeling. Sometimes these are these nuggets turn into content. Sometimes they're just like me venting to myself.
But that release for me is really, really important. And I think getting some of those things that I'm journaling out onto paper allows me to not worry about them as much, especially when it's things that might be stressful or decisions that I have to make. Sometimes I go through my decision making process in, in my journaling really helps me to kind of work on the right things, keep my head straight and not go and say, number seven is read at least 10 minutes daily. This one's pretty self-explanatory. I love to read, uh, consume a lot of books, but I could easily sit down and probably read for hours upon hours. I don't really have time for that. So 10 minutes I set a timer and I read the book that I'm reading a jump from book to book. I don't feel guilty if I don't complete a book.
If I'm not enjoying a book, I just stop. I know that might kind of irritate the book reading gods, but that's just how it works for me. Number eight is gratitude to the wife and kids. We can get all Sabi now, but every single morning I take a sticky note and I write something that I appreciate or I'm grateful for, uh, to my wife. And I leave it by our coffee machines so that when she goes to make her coffee, she sees that note. She usually throws them out, but she usually will acknowledge them and say, thank you, but I'm doing it because I want to share my gratitude and appreciation for her. And our kids are really young. So they're not gonna be able to read sticky notes, but I'll do it for them as they get older as well. But I do kind of share words of gratitude and love to each of my children in the morning as well.
All right. Number nine, be a fan of those. I admire, by the way, there's only 10, be a fan of those. I admire, uh, if you've ever been around me or, uh, my friends asked me a lot or my close peers asked me a lot, like, how are you connected to a lot of different people? Well, I'm a fan. That's really just what it comes down to. There are people that I admire that I just reach out to. I asked them questions, I engage, I like their content. I share their content. I'm just genuinely a fan of specific people. And so that's how I create relationships with a lot of big name, people that, you know, people like, how do you know X, Y, Z? And it's just like, well, I'm a fan of what they do. And I reach out to them and I ask questions and I'm curious, and I try to help them whenever I can.
And I pretty much do something like that. Daily. I'm always reaching out to someone that I, you know, if I see their Instagram story and I like it, I'll let them know and why and how it's impacted me. And that's just a habit that I've taken on every single day in some way, shape or form is just being a fan of those people that I admire and letting them know that, you know, the impact that they've had on my life. And lastly, number 10 is to create helpful content, creating helpful content videos like this. When I first started my YouTube channel, I did all the, you know, SEO trying to figure out titles and stuff like that. And very quickly I was creating videos that I didn't care about, um, nor did I think my audience really cared about. So what I really focus on is creating content that I want to talk about and that my audience is asking me to chat about.
So comment below, if there's things you want me to chat about, but I actually don't really look at the metrics all that much. Um, just up until this year, you know, at the time of recording this, we're about to cross 6,000 subscribers, um, which is super cool. I didn't really start caring about subscriber account until like a few months ago and I'm looking at it, but I still it's great. It's a vanity metric, but I care about me showing up every single week and working on mastering my message, finding ways to simplify complex things so that you can get value from it. And that's what keeps me going. It's not the, Oh, I got X comments or we, you know, we crossed the subscriber, Mark. I think that's a scoreboard for, you know, the, the amount of help that I'm doing, but in many ways I'm doing it because I know it makes me a better person.
Um, and it makes me more useful and helpful to the clients that I get to serve each and every day I get to articulate my message better. I get to design frameworks and put together step-by-step plans. All of these videos, the content that I create a week in and week out, allow me to better serve my clients. And that's why I'm in the game. So hope you found that helpful. Those are my daily and weekly ROI habits, highest ROI habits. I'd love to know what your highest ROI habit is. So leave a comment below, share your top three highest ROI habits. Cause I'd love to see what they are and hope you guys enjoyed this and a little bit different from some of the content recently, but Hey, we try to keep it fresh and I want to help you as much as I possibly can. And many of these things you can employ right now. So get after it, see you next time.
