Day 5 of the Makeover Your Mornings Challenge
Now that you’re clear on how you want to spend your mornings, what you don’t want to spend your time on, and where to find the extra time, it’s time to put it all together.
Today, we’re going to come up with a powerful morning routine game plan.
The best place to start is with the new set of tasks that are most important to you. First, you’ll want to figure out a timeframe for doing them as well as a general outline.
For example, you might want to go for a run every morning before showering and eating breakfast.
Or perhaps you want to meditate in the mornings — after you’ve had your first cup of coffee.
You could even do your morning reading or work on your favorite hobby while drinking that cup of coffee.
Whatever it is that you want to do in the morning — whether it’s working on your business or learning something new — figure out when you want to do it.
Then plan the rest of your morning chores around it. You might need to shuffle things around a bit and mix up your current routine, but I’m confident that you can come up with a powerful morning routine.

A Powerful Morning Routine Game Plan
Implementing a new routine isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us. It can take a bit of time to get into a new groove (we’ll get into a little more detail on this tomorrow).
But for now, I suggest writing your new morning game plan down. It’s all too easy to forget your plans, but writing it down to later reference will help to solidify it in your mind.
It might be helpful to keep this written plan somewhere you’ll see it first thing in the morning, such as on a nightstand. Having it where you can see it will serve as a visual reminder that you’re starting something new and doing things a little differently.
But even though you have it in writing, that doesn’t mean it’s written in stone. Sometimes, even the most well-laid out plans don’t always work when you put them into action.
Simply adjust and make changes as needed, until you come up with a new morning game plan that works. And once you have it all figured out, it’s time to implement and make it the new routine.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where we get more into the importance of habits and routines.
Day 5 Challenge
Today, your task is to write down your new morning routine in a notebook or on a sheet of paper, then place it wherever you’ll see it right away in the morning.
Then when you wake up, refer to it as needed to help you stay on task while you move through the morning.
If you have a really simple routine, you might not need it, but for those with a lot of tasks to check off your to-do list, it could be helpful.
Make life easier for your morning self by coming up with a solid evening routine.
