Mornings are busy and they can be quiet chaotic. If you have a young family and plenty of people to get ready and out the door, you know this first hand.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way, no matter how busy you think you are first thing in the day. It’s up to you and it’s all about embracing two simple concepts.
GET UP EARLY ENOUGH
Getting up early enough and avoiding the snooze button at all costs is the key to an unrushed morning.
You’re in control. You can take care of everything that needs doing in a calm manner and still have time for the important things you want to work on.
RESTRUCTURE YOUR ROUTINE
Look for things you can change and tweak to find more time for the things you really want to do.
If you spend a lot of time getting breakfast for everyone, get in the habit of setting the breakfast table the night before. Get your spouse to get the coffee ready, so all you have to do in the morning is push a button.
