Don't make decisions when you wake up

I start my day with a routine: wake up, brush teeth, take care of cat(s), clean the house a bit, shower, shave if necessary, moisturize, eye drops, and eat. I go about it slowly (~90 minutes). After that I may choose to align my mind with my chosen goals, or get to work immediately.

I do this because I usually wake up groggy and exhausted as hell. If I were to make a decision about what to do on any single day based on how I feel in the morning I would get nothing done. I postpone all decision making until I’ve completed my routine. You should do the same. You’ll feel more in control of your life, more productive, and happier.
