Why You Should Never Work in Pyjamas

Back when I was a tailor, I had a client who was a lawyer.

He worked from home, so that’s where I would visit him for measuring and fittings, and each time I saw him, he was fully suited up.

And I mean the works: Tie, polished shoes, vest, jacket, cufflinks pocket square – decked out in full regalia.

At first I was bemused: the guy must really like his suits (good client, therefore).

But the more I think about it these days, now that I’ve started researching mindset and behaviour, the more sense it makes.

See, your subconscious responds to your actions and your thoughts.

In general you don’t notice, not directly (subconscious – get it?)

But over the course of your day, your week and your career such as it may be, the way you program – seed – your subconscious directly affects you.

Which is why if you want good ‘n productive, creative days, the worst thing you could do is dress like a slob.

Working in your jammies might feel comfortable, but you bet that your subconscious will respond  by giving you less focus.

It’s why, for example, you’ll very rarely see me unshaven.

It’s just something I do, it’s part of my morning ritual.

If I’m going to be at work, or if I’m going out, or if I’m going to do be doing anything that needs to be done well, I shave. Period.

It’s one of the ways I consciously program my mind and the deeper layers of it to feel ready, focused, and powerful.

Not that you need to suit up for work – though at times I do feel tempted.

Maybe I should try that one of these days.

Anyway, just something to think about.

Another thing to think about: becoming a sharp, fast, focused email writer.

Cuz there’s nothing quite as fun, powerful and effective as writing a daily email to your people.

They’ll love you for it, too.
