The morning routines of successful people

Ever had one of those days when you roll out of bed the wrong way and nothing seems to go right from that point on?

We all have.

Getting a jump on the day, and starting it in the right way, can make all the difference between a productive workday and one you spend in a rushed state, trying to catch up with all the agenda items that are slipping away from you.

Successful people value their morning time, and they don’t leave their mornings to chance.

They plan them and follow certain routines to ensure that their days progress as smoothly as possible.

If you’re not sure of the kind of morning routine to adopt, why not start by copying the habits of some of our greatest minds and entrepreneurs?

Here is what many of them have in common.

They’re early risers

Yep, very few top entrepreneurs or investors are late risers.

They like to get up early, and they do it day in and day out.

Their morning alarm is also set at a very specific time, and they don’t tend to vary it — even on the weekends.

Kara Goldin, CEO of Hint Water, for example, wakes up at 5:30 a.m. every morning to check her email so she knows what the day will have in store for her.

Then she goes hiking with her family in the hills surrounding her Californian home before she heads to work.

They hit autopilot

If you have a strict morning routine, where you don’t have to think about when to leave for work or what to eat for breakfast, it frees your mind up for more complex and creative thoughts.

The creator of the Dilbert cartoons, Scott Adams, follows the same 20-minute wake-up routine every day, which includes the same protein bar and coffee, to give his mind space to think up new ideas.


They get moving

Many high-powered leaders start their day by exercising.

They either hit the gym to burn calories and get those endorphins flowing, or they do some relaxing yoga, just like former Christie’s CEO Steven Murphy does.
