Every Morning


Every morning I do the same thing.

I get dressed, put on my boots, open up my meditative text, read, spend 15 minutes in silent meditation, silent prayers, journaling, cook breakfast, eat breakfast, drink coffee, do the dishes, read from a book, brush my teeth, make the bed, kiss my wife, pet my cats, drive to work and go for a walk.

All of this happens in a period of two and a half hours.

How do I get all of this accomplished?

I do not do much.

When I get dressed, I get dressed. When I eat, I eat. When I cook, I cook. When I read, I read. Every task gets completed without distraction and by following the simple rule of no glowing rectangles the first three hours of my day.

We all have the same 24 hours in a single day. What we get done depends on how focused we are.

Tomorrow morning after you wake up, climb out of bed and immediately start to get dressed. When you cook, cook. When you wash dishes, wash dishes. When you drive to work, drive. When you write, write. You will be amazed how much time you always had available.
