why you can't work like elon musk

There are a lot of videos out there that talk about the "8 Habits of Highly Effective People","The things you must do to make in shopify dropshipping", the best morning routines to have a super productive day or the daily habits that are going to make you a billionaire, following things that Elon Musk's or Jeff Bezos do, but I'm here to tell you that a lot of those things will never work for you. Every one of us is unique, every one of our lives is unique and a lot of these things that people say work for them – will never do a thing for you. Because the truth is, at the end of the day, if you want to know why successful people are successful: Don't try to do what they do – Learn how they think, and that is what will make your routines work for you.

The first thing that I want to get up right away is the first thing that I do when I wake up in the morning, which is check my email. Can you believe that every video that you'll see out there every article will tell you – don't check email first thing in the morning, successful people don't check their email first in the morning. I call BS on that, because if you have an effective system in place, you have effective systems in place where you can see an email you can, see some part of communication and then effectively pass it off to the right person, the right resource so that things can actually get done and put things in motion, then why wouldn't you want to check your email? Why wouldn't you want to start things in motion, while you go on to do other things?

We can't multitask, that's something that just doesn't exist but we can “parallel tasks”, so if you think about multitasking is like pushing two basketballs up a hill right and one starts to fall over this way you have to catch and this one's over here and it's struggling to keep them in balance. Parallel tasking would be like you're at the top of the hill and there's eight basketballs and you just have to go along and knock them down the hill and they go. You can parallel pass by setting things in motion and then going back to doing what you were planning on doing anyway. The idea of not checking your email first thing in the morning… First of all, a lot of really successful people don't check their email ever, because they have assistants to do it for them, so you can check your email first thing in the morning if you have a good system in place.
