I accomplish a lot most days with a pretty good attitude.
But it hasn't always been that way. What has made it possible is my morning routine. It's no secret that the most successful people in the world have a morning routine. It's part of the secret sauce in success. I want to be successful, so I emulate those who have gone before me.
