Who needs a killer routine when you can just have coffee?
You may have heard or read a lot about the morning routines of high-functioning people—CEOs, visionary businesswomen and men, political leaders, gurus, life coaches, and other larger-than-real-life figures. They only sleep 45 minutes a night, and upon waking, they walk into a dry ice chamber for ten minutes to meditate and get their heart going while reviewing their goals for the day, then eat fresh greens and raw fish, wash it down with a gallon of ionized water, and finally have a single espresso or four ounces of coffee. After finishing their morning routine, they go out and succeed like a motherfucker, making more money in the first hour of the day than you and I make in an entire week or month. And I kind of assume they look good doing it.
You, too, can adopt these routines of successful people.
Or you can do something completely different, something similar to what the rest of us do in the morning. Follow these 14 steps and you’ll be on your path to being kind of successful—especially if your definition of success is something like “keeping it together for another day” or “being pretty grateful to be alive and have what I have.”
