1. Get up ear­lier. To get ahead of the game, you’ll need a head start. In to­day’s com­pet­i­tive world, it helps to have an ex­tra hour or two in the morn­ing to get things done. But this starts the night be­fore. To hit the ground run­ning, you need to make sure you’re get­ting enough sleep. 2. Ex­er­cise. It’s hard to work out in the morn­ing, but with bal­anc­ing a ca­reer and fam­ily, find­ing time to be ac­tive in the evening is of­ten more chal­leng­ing. Start­ing the day with a workout will help kick-start your brain and pro­vide an im­proved sense of well-be­ing through­out the day. 3. Set your pri­or­i­ties. Time is pre­cious and be­ing or­ga­nized will en­sure you max­i­mize ev­ery minute. Whether you’re at home, on public tran­sit or at work, take 15 min­utes each morn­ing to write down your pri­or­i­ties for the day. This will give you a clear plan of at­tack, keep­ing you fo­cused on im­por­tant tasks. 4. Start strong. Re­search shows that willpower is high­est in the morn­ing. So in­stead of check­ing your email and get­ting side-tracked with end­less small tasks, stay un­plugged and be­gin each day by first tack­ling harder as­sign­ments that re­quire more fo­cus and de­ter­mi­na­tion.
