Consistent behaviour and the morning routine

A successful morning routine is important. It’s not just about the shower, or the breakfast. Planning. What’s important is doing the behavior that gets you started, that gets you filled with energy and makes you ready for a new day. And, creating healthy habits.

Here are my three steps:

First. Create the morning routine. Set the time (how long should it be, and when will you get started in the morning?). Add it to your schedule and add the “tasks”.

Here are some examples of a morning routine (don’t add too many “tasks”):

Second. Start doing it. Do the “tasks”.

Third. Repeat it the next day (every day) and adjust. You’ll discover that some “tasks” are not as important as you first thought they would be. Remove them, and add the “tasks” you need.

What makes you successful, in the end, is consistent behavior. Keep doing “the same things” over and over again. Once a week, evaluate what you’re doing.

    My day start with checking the emails and replying as many of them as possible. And then having some breakfast and reading a book before going back to desk

    • That’s interesting. I don’t check my emails until 10 am. My experience is that when I start the day by doing email, I get stuck in my inbox for a very long time and don’t get to do the most important stuff.

      Do you still get to do your most important tasks, and how much time do you use on email?

      Thanks.

    Hi Jens-Petter,

    you are absolutely right with mentioning the importance of a morning routine.

    Having a routine in place keeps you focused on the things that need to be done. This leads to consistency which results in success.

    Have an amazing day,
    Torsten

    I find a morning routine to be crucial for me too especially drinking a glass of water plain or with a squeeze of lemon. This helps with my productivity and enthuisasm to get stuff done and articles written.
