On good starts

When you start the morning out right, it seems like the rest of your day falls into place accordingly. That shouldn’t be due to luck or at the whim of how you feel on a given morning—that results in far too much unpredictability. I’ve seen you take time the night before to actively think about how you want the next day to begin. If nothing else, know how the first hour or even half hour of your next day will begin. If you can win that small amount of time with one or two activities, you’ll set a standard.
