My Morning Routine

As if you actually wanted to read about another celebrity’s routine.

I present mine:

  • Wake up (usually from baby crying in the adjacent room or from dog licking my face)

  • Check futures (I have no idea why I do this)

  • Take a shower if I didn’t take one before bed

  • Put on clothes, brush teeth, make hair look beautiful, believe me

  • Feed the dog and let him outside

  • Make a quick cup of coffee and grab a Larabar or RxBar to go

  • Drop the kid off at daycare

  • Arrive at work 30-45 minutes late

This is a normal person’s morning, especially if you have kids. Luckily my wife gets the baby fed and changed and ready for the day. I should help more with that. I’m usually a zombie in the morning from staying up way too late.

Here’s what I don’t do: I don’t get up at 3 a.m. every morning to get in a quick 2 hour workout on my Peloton before the rest of the world gets up. I don’t meditate for 30 minutes and contemplate the meaning of life. I don’t take shots of wheatgrass. I don’t have time for that shit.

I’m sure you're sick of seeing these clickbait headlines where celebrities and gurus reveal their daily routines. I’m talking about Mark Wahlberg, Tim Ferriss, Dolly Parton, et al. They all have more money than God. They can hire nannies, chefs, gardeners, trainers, and whoever else so they can spend their entire day living out some ridiculous fantasy life that none of us will ever have.

Just know you can be successful in life (like me) without doing all of these ridiculous things.

Before you go, please enjoy this thread from Josh Wolfe who hits the nail on the head about this topic. So funny.

What does your morning routine look like?
