This week on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I chat with Benjamin Spall. Spall is co-author of the book My Morning Routine: How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired and co-founder of the website by the same name.
For their website and book, Spall and his co-founder and co-author, Michael Xander, have interviewed nearly 300 successful leaders in arenas as diverse as business, sports, the arts, and government. On today’s episode, we talk about what we can learn from the morning routines of successful people when creating our own set of rituals to start the day.
Spall has contributed to various other publications, including Entrepreneur, Business Insider, and the Huffington Post.
Questions I ask Benjamin Spall:
- What are some of the known benefits of having a morning routine?
- How do you create a shutdown ritual?
- Did you discover any patterns, or things that everybody does, in the morning?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- How sticking to your morning routine can make you more productive all day long
- Why you can’t forget about your evening routine to set you up for success the next day
- How to use “habit stacking” to make your routine easier to follow
