Publisher Description

Mornings are a madcap time for many of us. We wake up in a haze—often after hitting snooze a few times. Then we rush around to get ready and out the door so we can officially start the day. Before we know it, hours have slipped by without us accomplishing anything beyond downing a cup of coffee, dashing off a few emails, and dishing with our coworkers around the water cooler. By the time the workday wraps up, we’re so exhausted and defeated that any motivation to accomplish something in the evening has vanished.

But according to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives.

Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day. While many of us are still in bed, these folks are scoring daily victories to improve their health, careers, and personal lives without sacrificing their sanity. For instance, former PepsiCo chairman and CEO Steve Reinemund would rise at 5:00 a.m., run four miles, pray, and eat breakfast with his family before heading to work to run a Fortune 500 company.

What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your morning routine and jump-start your life before the day has even begun.

Pretty motivating

I'm looking at mornings in a whole new way! If you cant seam to find time to do what you want or can't stay motivated this book will give you a wake up call. It was short and sweet; I'd say worth the small price tag for sure.

43 pages

$2.99 in 43 pages to tell you to wake up an hour early and spend time with your kids, do yoga, focus on a work goal, or start running. I just saved you $2.99.

A life saver

This is the answer I needed. My life has been a mess the last two years because I can't accomplish my personal goals, and I've been depressed because of that. I had not thought about using my mornings at all. The ideas in this book are just what I needed to start a revolution in my life. In addition, it is so well written and very inspiring, easy to read, understand and put into action.
