037 The Morning Routine – ProductivityCast

There’s a long-standing misconception (in Ray Sidney-Smith‘s humble opinion) that habits are how you become more productive. But, it’s actually your routines that power your habits, and therefore, your personal productivity. In this episode of ProductivityCast, we discuss the power of routines, and specifically look at the morning routine. We discuss each of our morning routines and discuss some challenges facing building a good morning routine.
