6 Reasons Why Highly Successful People Wear The Same Thing Every Day

Aside from their tremendous impact on the world, their creative genius and their cult following, what do Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Albert Einstein all have in common ? Yes, you guessed correctly: They all have their own signature style that they wear every day.

Ever considered doing so yourself ? Here are some reasons why you might want to consider it:

It’s Simple

Simple is often genius. Complicated is often dizzying. If you are like most of Americans, you barely wear 80% of items in your closet. Instead of feeling constrained by the thought of picking a uniform, consider it a way to wear your unique look all the time. Your signature style is yours alone and can be as humdrum or unique as you like. Jeans and a turtle neck? Grey suit or blue suit? Chances are you have certain outfits you enjoy wearing more than others already, so you don’t really have to think too hard.

Simply define your own uniform, buy more of what you love for each weekday and organize your closet accordingly. Give away the items that don’t work for you anymore, and finally have that organized closet you have been dreaming of.

Decision-Free Zone

We make more decisions on a daily basis than ever before—do we also have to choose an outfit each day, too? Mark Zuckerberg enjoys the freedom his signature grey T-shirts bring him: “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”

With mornings being as harried as they are, zero decision making at the start of the day sounds quite liberating. Think of all the stress having a uniform could save. With all the talk about the “aha” moments people have in the shower, do you really want to be the person still mentally going through their closet when you could be mentally creating the next big thing?

Do the Math

Just to be clear, no one is saying wearing the exact same item day in and day out—that would be quite gross. Just  have a basic uniform and tweak accord to your lifestyle. Maybe it’s chinos, maybe it’s cashmere. Work out how many of each you need to have a seamless flow of clothes ready for you each morning. If you wore a uniform in school, chances are you hated it, but it certainly made those mornings easier. So now that you get to pick your own uniform, why not give it a try?

It Saves Money

By knowing what you wear daily, you can be sure to always have a few extra items of your choice saved away for a rainy day by stocking up when they’re on sale. Closets become streamlined! Packing for travel becomes a synch! And you can even stash a few extra items at work.

It Boosts Confidence and Increases Focus

You know what items work for you and your body type and give you the confidence to focus more on your work and be a better team player. No need to wear the ill-fitting items just because you bought them haphazardly because they were on sale, or because they’re the only clean clothes ready for wear for you that morning. By creating your own uniform, you are able to be stylish and comfortable every day.

It’s Predictable

Above all, by defining and creating our signature style, we are “good to go” on a daily basis with minimal effort or thought. Additionally, with all the craziness in the world, we can at least have the stability of knowing our daily uniform will be predictable. And for that reason alone, it very well may worth it.
