“Lose an hour in the morning and you will spend all day looking for it.”
Kevin used to work late and get up late but in the last 2 years, he’s been waking up at 5 am and no it wasn’t an easy change but it is one that’s changed his life and increased his productivity.
Before 9 am and by the time he gets into the office, Kevin has gone to the gym, checked his email, listed out his tasks for the day, taken his kids to school, driven 30 minutes into the office, checked the news, and maybe had a bit to eat somewhere in there. Even if he’s unable to get tasking done throughout the day, he’s at least knocked those things out of the way so that if his day is filled with client or internal meetings, he’s still gotten stuff done.
After dinner, he puts the kids to bed and does a bit more work, checking to see if he’s missed anything and following up on some tasks.
Are you a morning person? What’s your routine like?
