WHAT DOES YOUR MORNING ROUTINE LOOK LIKE?
I wake up at 4:30am each morning. I typically will go for a run or hit the gym if possible for an hour. I clean up and get ready for the workday. I spend the next hour and a half catching up on emails from the night before, planning my day around my scheduled meetings and calls and setting up my task list for the day (it’s the only quiet time I have all day). I write this all down in my daily planner. Handwritten, pencil notes… oh and I have coffee...
