Entrepreneurs striving to make their impact in the world may look at Sir Richard Branson, iconic entrepreneur and founder of Virgin Group, and be tempted to think that he has some special secret to credit for his success. However, if you’re looking for a productivity hack or the one book he read to change his life, you’ll be disappointed.
The secret to Richard Branson’s success and productivity is summed up in two words: “Work out.”
It’s as simple as that. Branson claims that exercise is the tool that helps him double his daily productivity. When you exercise, you’re going to be mentally sharper, which leads to better decision-making throughout the day. Exercise also increases the amount of oxygen flowing into your brain and releases other chemicals that help improve your memory and concentration.
