A Routine Makes Being Productive Easy
When it comes to being productive I find there is no better way than waking early and having a solid morning routine. Yes, forcing the body out of bed in the early hours is difficult; however, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. The past few weeks have found me bounding out of bed in the morning (even before my alarm goes off). The more you do something, the easier the task becomes. This too is true in regards to hitting the day hard as soon as waking.
I have a short morning routine I have followed for years. It has made those beginning tasks easy to accomplish. Now, with helping build family businesses, new morning habits must be built. Tasks which are not difficult, nor time-consuming per say, but get pushed aside unless time is made. There is no better time than the morning.
A morning routine, or morning habits, makes being productive in those early hours a simple process. Get out of bed. Check. Perform one task. Check. Do the next. And so on. Before you know it, the morning has passed and with it much of your to-do list.
Do You Have a Morning Routine?
I encourage you today, if you are not a morning person, if you do not have a morning routine, begin one today. Start with one step. Whether that is choosing to get up when the first alarm goes off, spending time in prayer, making your bed, or washing your face, choose one habit you want to incorporate and follow through every morning.
Life gets busy, hectic, and at times very, very overwhelming. When you have a few habits and routines in your life, performing those duties becomes less difficult.
