went to a 9AM meeting, an hour’s drive from my house.


Maybe not a big deal for you, but I hate Monday mornings.

And so my two rules are:

1. Always exercise first thing on a Monday.

2. No scheduled activities before noon.

Sometimes it doesn’t work out (like today). But in general, I do my best to protect that time.

Knowing when you’re most productive – and when you’re not – and then scheduling your life accordingly, goes a long way.
