- I love anything by Laura Vanderkam, and her latest is no exception. It’s an ebook called What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, a quick read that will inspire you to make more of your mornings. I had fallen off the “early morning” wagon after the birth of my last baby (who’s now 13 months old, and sleeping through the night just fine, so I think that excuse is over). I know, know, know, know that I am more productive through my entire day when I wake up early and use my mornings well. Laura’s book helped kickstart me back into it. I’ve been getting up early (6ish) for the last 10 days (even while on vacation, visiting family over the weekend) and though it’s not a solid habit yet, it’s already improving the quality of my days. And helping me get to the important stuff before the rush of the day begins… which means I’m on track to reaching my big goals even when the day goes haywire before lunch.
