If you make your bed in the morning, you're heading for millionaire status

Vic Naidoo shared that he makes his bed just before going to sleep. We're wondering if that counts...

For most people, morning routines are a thing. After you wake up, naturally you make your bed, brush your teeth, use the toilet, shower, get ready, etc. 

But that's not the case for everyone, and we guess that is why it was so inviting to hear that making one's bed is a good trait that leads to making more money. 

"Socio-economist Randall Bell, Ph.D., has been studying success for 25 years, analysing the core characteristics that all great achievers have in common." (CNBC)

One of the seven traits he discovered was a commonality among highly successful people: doing chores and, more specifically, making your bed in the morning. 

"It turns out that what you do everyday matters. The most successful people follow specific daily rituals and routines, or what he calls “rich habits.” (CNBC)

Vic Naidoo feels this theory was concocted by a group of moms who want their kids to do their chores

“For example, those who make their bed in the morning are up to 206.8 percent more likely to be millionaires.” It puts your mind into a productive mindset, he explains." (CNBC)

Now, that sounds like something we all should put on our vision boards. It all starts with making your bed, who would've thunk it? 

Okay, naturally, we know that being clean and organised is something that is considered a good trait, but specifically making your bed is connected with better productivity.
