One quality that sets apart the super-productive from many others around them is their morning rituals. The things that these people do each morning set the tone for their day and help them to maximize their focus and productivity.
Of course, there is no particular list of foods and activities that all industrious and successful people subscribe to. What we do know, however, is that nearly every one of these men and women have one that they follow religiously.
While I do not include myself in the above category of success, I do work hard each day towards that goal. Part of what I do each day (or at least on a scheduled basis throughout my week) is to follow a regimen of prescriptive activities that guide how I start my mornings and get each day off right.
- Follow a regular routine – My days end each night at about midnight. I shoot for six hours of sleep a night, so in most cases I am up at 6:00. My body has become conditioned to this scheduled so even on days where I don’t have an alarm set, my biological clock kicks in. This is important because our bodies perform best when they are able to adapt to a regular, comfortable schedule.
