The First Things I Do in the Morning
And it’s not turning off the alarm clock.
I open my eyes and start repeating my personal mission statement in my mind.
I do a quick intensive workout and pray simultaneously.
I drink a glass of water.
I look at my vision board for a few minutes.
I read about dozen quotes from my philosophy manifesto.
I read fragments from a couple of books which shaped my philosophy (about a paragraph each).
I journal for about 10–15 minutes.
I brush my teeth and pray at the same time.
I do 5- to 15-minute cardio workout listening to podcasts or other audio materials.
My routine extends to the commute to work too: more prayers and meditation while waiting for the train.
On the way to work, I write or make up for the lack of sleep by catching a nap.
Commuting between the train station and the office: I practice speed reading, read a book written by a saint for ten minutes and finish repeating my personal mission statement.
Ideally, I reach the office having the biggest daily task — writing 1000 words — done, and having done most of my bigger daily habits.
