What is your morning routine?
My morning routine begins the night before. I sleep for nine hours, meditate, exercise, meditate again, and then begin the workday.
Sleep and exercise are my health priorities. By figuring out how much sleep I actually need and sticking to it as a health priority, both my life and work have changed for the better. I wake up nine hours after I go to sleep, so the exact time varies, but I aim for it to be as early as possible.
How long have you stuck with this routine so far?
More than two years.
How has your morning routine changed over recent years?
I’ve experimented for years, often prioritizing exercise over sleep, but I eventually realized that nine hours of sleep every night is my real secret to success.
What time do you go to sleep?
During peak business weeks I often go to sleep between 6:00-9:00pm. I know this is insane, but waking between 3:00-6:00am allows me to work on projects in the still of the morning without interruption. I highly recommend it for focusing on certain projects for a set amount of time.
