About the ebook
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.

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.
“Vanderkam, who became fascinated by time management while penning her last book, ‘168 Hours’ says that in the course of researching dozens of people on how they spend their precious minutes, the most successful people were those who devoted chunks of time in the morning to the things (or people) that they loved.”
“Vanderkam argues that making smart use of the early morning is a practice most highly successful people share.”
“What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast: A Short Guide to Making Over Your Mornings—and Life, is a satisfying reminder of the role of willpower, its influence over daily priorities, and how it can be tweaked to optimize the morning hours, while your mind is still fresh.”
“Laura shares a peek into the lives of some very successful people — and how they are structuring their lives to make the most of the morning hours. What works for them might not work for you, but I promise you’ll be inspired to make the most of your mornings — whether or not you are an early riser.”
