      Same. The best slash worst addition to my morning routine over the past year has been buying an Ember mug to magically keep my never-ending coffee cup eternally warm. I've convinced myself there are worse addictions to have, but that may/may not be true

        Just googled this mug, it looks really cool. My really big cup is usually cold by the time I get to the bottom! Looks to be sold out on their website.

          Glad you too found it intriguing! For a coffee main-liner, it really is a game changer.

      Actually, before the cup of coffee I grab the coffee grinder, grind some coffee and enjoy the smell...

      Same thing. In fact, I often have to be reminded of holidays, because it all blends together.

      I never need anything to get me started, because...in my mind...I've never stopped.

      My interest in my business is waning. So...eventually, my interest will be low enough that...one day...I'll just say "I don't want to do this anymore", and I'll retire on that day.

      Then probably, a week later, I'll get antsy again.

      that sounds like a better definition of success than any attempt i have seen made to define it on this forum .."free to do the things i want to do when i want to do them "

      I look at the world in terms of seeing only 1 world economy that is on 24 hours a day.. prone to rapid and sudden changes ..

      a lot of the success concepts .. are winning the rat rat .. by building your own track ..in the pre 1 economy world ..that is quickly dissolving..

      the only rituals i would give credence too to incorporate ..would be if i want to work out in the morning..i put on workout cloths utill you work out..then after you clean up and eat if you intend to work from home have some comfortable at home work cloths ..a paper schedule system. And a done list ..to track what you do every day ..

    an' snort ancientale Motivates ...

    "why, these new self-talk stuffs sound so much like me
    I can't believe nobody is selling me anything!"

    "Either we are chained to the floor or free as a bird.

    When you look back, what are the sweetest moments give voice to your word?"

    "Princess Balestra quit contributing to this post at 10.13AM est.

    Mondays are my favourite -- and most productive -- day of the week : ) Usually after having the weekend off, I can't wait to get working again. I very much like structure/routine ... For example, I do what I do for every working day and the night before create a whole list for the next day -- everything from drinking water in the morning, to reading my Personal Development books, to having a meal, and of course, several hours of work.

    I know I've mentioned it before, however if I already had the Millions, I would do it all for free.

    Anyway, similar to Kay and others above, I do all that ... Because I want/choose to do it. Similarly, as Bob Dylan said: "A person is a success if they get up in the morning and get to bed at night, and in between they do what they want to do."

    I do not get the question. I mean, I understand it, but why have a Monday ritual? As opposed to what?


    First thing I do on Mondays is wake up. Honest.
    Then, I think what I wanna do next, and do it.


    But I do that every other day.


    Some Mondays, the first thing I wanna do is check my email. Other times is take a shower. Other times is lie in bed and think about how gorgeous lying like that is. Other times I look up what's happening on warriorforum. Other times, I think about creating some piece of content. Or a plan of action. Or go to Starbucks and get an Americano.


    Once I'm done with the first thing, I go to the second thing. Always in that order. Cross my little heart and wish to die.
