My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine : How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired


'This small book carries the irresistible implicit promise that if you follow the morning routines of famous, important and successful people, you will become famous, important and successful yourself.' Financial Times

How are you spending your most valuable hours? The first few choices you make each morning can unlock greater productivity, creativity, and calm - or bring out your worst self.

Marie Kondo performs a quick tidying ritual to quiet her mind before leaving the house. The president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Ed Catmull, mixes three shots of espresso with three scoops of cocoa powder and two sweeteners. Retired U.S.Army Four-Star General Stanley McChrystal works out at 4:00 AM every day for at least an hour.

Part instruction manual, part someone else's diary, My Morning Routine interviews sixty-four of today's most successful people - including Biz Stone, the co-founder of Twitter; Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post; and Michael Acton Smith, the CEO of Calm - and offers timeless advice on creating a routine of your own.

Some routines are all about early-morning exercise and spartan living; others are more leisurely and self-indulgent. Whether you want to boost your productivity, implement a workout or meditation routine, or learn to roll with the punches in the morning, this book has you covered.

Once you land on the right routine, you'll look forward to waking up.
