What Does Your Morning Routine Look Like?

Open Loops
has a wonderful piece about using the early morning hours to your
advantage. For many folks, morning is the best time of day to get
things done. I look at it in a more practical way: I want to be
successful and the first step in that is to start well.

Oh and by the way, have you read Guy Kawasaki's The Art of the Start?  It's a great read for folks starting a business or major project.

Another great way to begin the day is through some kind of spiritual reading.  Allan Wright's new book, Jesus in the House, is finally out and should be a great day-starter.

Good day-starters which begin early in the am:

  • rituals (go for a run, make coffee, listen to the same song, say a mantra)

  • working out (good for the body and the mind)

  • journaling (get it out of your head and onto paper)

  • blogging (I'm serious- it's a sort of mind-mapping)

  • meditation and prayer (start your day by putting God first on your agenda)
