Bookend Your Day: Why a Man Needs a Morning and Evening Routine
Darren Hardy, editor-in-chief of Success Magazine and author of The Compound Effect argues that a person's morning and evening routines are the "bookends" of a successful life. Why is this?
Ensures the really important things get done. While we generally can't control what goes on in the middle of a day, we usually can control how we begin and end the day. Take advantage of this fact by incorporating your most important tasks, actions, and behaviors into your morning and evening routines.
For example, I know many businessmen who refuse to check email first thing in the morning. Instead, their morning routine consists of waking up, getting dressed, and spending an hour working on their most important task of the day, even before they go into the office. This ensures they accomplish their task before the chaos and interruptions of the workday get in the way.
How to Create Your Morning and Evening Routines
Review your life plan. Look at your most important goals. Are there any habits or behaviors you need to instill in yourself to achieve those goals? Make those behaviors or habits part of your morning and evening routines.
