If you wake up chasing the morning because you woke up late, you’ll always be in a rush mode the entire day.

The first 10 minutes of how you start your day determines how you spend the next 10 hours of your day.

The inability to manage time means you’re always chasing time which means you’re always chasing your life instead of managing your life

Start your day with mind training.

By meditating, you are starting your day by practicing focus when it doesn’t matter [sitting on a couch for 10 minutes] so that you can focus better when it does matter [negotiation, conversation with a loved one etc.]

Meditation acts as a warm bath for the mind.

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree & I’ll spend the first hour sharpening the axe.”- Abraham Lincoln

Meditation allows me to step back and gain a “witness perspective of my life and day,” so that I’m observing my thoughts instead of being tumbled by them.

Spend some quiet time in the morning, reflecting, thinking, breathing and listening to inner voice.

This helps you track your emotions and feelings throughout the day.
