So many of us use our smartphones as our morning alarm. It can only feel natural to want to click on the mail icon. But don't do it! Your email inbox is not your to-do list. Your email inbox is does not dictate where you put your focus today. So put email on hold for the very first hour.
Number 2: Exercise. Too many of us complain that we can't fit in a workout. Too many of us complain that we haven't gone to the gym in weeks. So schedule it first thing. Fit in that run. Fit in that workout in the first hour of your day. It'll set you up for a fantastic morning. It will get those endorphin's going to give you the energy you need to have a great day.
Number 3: Plan your very first task the night before. A great day begins the night before. So take just a few minutes and select what's the most important thing, what's the very first thing you can start on when you begin your work the next day. When you first get into your office, you don't want to be thinking about doing stuff. You want to be doing stuff. You want to be executing. So take just a few minutes the day before and plan out what is your first task and then execute on it the next morning.
So, ignore your email for the first hour, fit in that workout, get that exercise, and plan your most important task the night before. 3 ways to have a great morning. It's very simple.
