One big personal takeaway from 2017 – empowering morning rituals. I am learning how to protect my mornings for real. It is a sacred moment where I take time to prepare my body, mind, and spirit for the day. I took me quite some time to get it and now the benefits are great. It is time to re-create my daily goals and connect them with my personal values and virtues. Starting the day focused and pro-active is a game-changer for me. Instead, of starting your day reacting to your emails and smartphone notifications, you can actually do some deep work and take your projects to the next level. It wasn’t easy, it took a lot of discipline and awareness but it was so worth it. In the end, it comes down to this: “who is writing your life story?”. If we want to write it ourselves, it is good to start in the morning 🙂
