Part 2: Better Morning Routine Makes Business More Productive

Part 2: Better Morning Routine Makes Business More Productive

A few weeks ago, I asked some of my favorite entrepreneurs to share their morning routines with me. Here are some interesting highlights:

Liz Dyrsmid – Content Marketing Director of Flowster is a Business Process Management Tool that streamlines internal processes to reduce errors, delegate work, and scale your business faster.

Liz’s Morning Routine:

  • 10 Minute Yoga using Insight Timer
  • Drink Green Tea
  • HIIT Workout (MWF) or reading/journaling (TR)
  • Prep for the day
  • Start with a couple of minutes of focus & visualization
    • 6-2-7 breath (6 count in, 2 count hold, 7 count out)
    • State my personal mission
    • Visualize my life in 5-10 years (vision fully realized)
    • Visualize my day today (how can I step closer towards realizing my mission?)
    • State my personal mission
    • 6-2-7 breath

Ashtan Moore – Co-Founder of Model B and Ironclad Accounting & Finance. Both of his businesses support business professionals to achieve high levels of growth through marketing, serial entrepreneurs, and unparalleled strategic guidance.

Ashtan’s Submission:

  • Morning:
    • Weekday wake up: 5:40 am
    • 6:00 gym (HIIT/Olympic lifting classes)
    • 7:20 protein smoothie (Huel, protein powder)
    • 7:30-8:00 read books + newsletters (The Hustle & Daily Stoic)
    • 8:00-8:30 shower, dress
    • 8:30-8:50 walk to work & listen to new releases on Spotify playlist to save the best songs
    • 8:50-9:00 make coffee & it’s work time!
  • Daily Habits/Routine:
    • 1 hour a day of self-improvement for the body, 5 days a week (gym)
    • 1 hour a day of self-improvement for the brain (books usually)
    • 1 hour a day of helping others (coaching, providing guidance/experience, intros or otherwise)
    •  1 hour a day of dedicated non-productive personal downtime (video games or reading nonsense on Reddit)

Paul Fury – CEO of The Fury Group, a Salesforce Cloud Alliance Consulting Partner that supports companies to meet their goals by uniting sales and marketing through the Salesforce platform.

Paul’s Submission:

  • Tuesday is my work late day if needed: Client dinners, Forum, office work catch up. No grief from family – they know. Wednesday is my leave work at noon day: Family time, honey-dos, relax. Once family and team adjusted, it was wonderful. Now instead of getting asked to do something at a “bad time” my wife and kids will say “hey, Wednesday can you…..?”
    Read every morning (helps me wake up) and always make the bed! Weird little habit but Admiral McRaven was right!
