The Morning Routine

The morning routine is going well since officially embarking on it around November of last year. Here's what happens.

  • 5 mins - Review the day ahead and ensuring that I don't have any conflicting work. Use Todoist and Timepage to do this.
  • 10 mins - Scan through my Feedbin subscriptions and then read a couple of articles on Instapaper.
  • 15 mins - Write in my notebook. When I say writing I mean with pen and paper. None of that digital nonsense. I'm on my third notebook and plan to keep it going for as long as I can. I use the time to write drafts of blog posts, private pieces or every now and then try out writing some fiction.

I do this all at the dining room table. Just me, my phone, a pen and a notebook. And maybe a coffee if I'm feeling adventurous.

I have to say, it's working well for me.
