Years ago, I was mountain biking in Nepal. One day, we spent the entire morning grinding up to a high mountain pass, miles upon miles, hour upon hour. At last we arrived at the top. We enjoyed hours of descending at top speed on the other side.
This is how our morning routine functions. You spend your morning storing up the energy to go at top speed throughout the day and enjoy the ride!
What in your morning routine gives you the most energy?
Getting your body ready creates a foundation for a great and energizing morning routine. Today, we are discussing exercise: how to move and create a body that moves well.
Do nagging injuries and decades of gravity getting you down? These little pains are more than inconvenience, they hamper our enjoyment of life and hold back our productivity.
In this video, I share two important values I've used to build a morning routine that works: Consistency over Intensity, and Counteract Gravity Daily.
What does your daily exercise look like?
What benefits do you notice?
The biggest culprit in sabotaging a morning routine which fuels an abundant business and life is electronics. Our smartphones, tablets, and other screens are more enticing, addictive, and seductive than the powerful habits of reading, exercise, and journaling.
In this video, I cover two strategies for controlling your electronics so that they do not control you.
Which apps or devices trip up your morning routine?
What strategies do you use to control your electronics?
How do you use your morning routine to fuel your body, mind, and soul.
As you build your morning routine, consider adding healthy ways to feed, grow, and fuel your mind through reading, planning, and journaling.
Likewise, we can build up our spirits or souls through reading of sacred texts, prayer, and meditation.
Done once or twice, these practices accomplish little. Done daily for years, decades, and a lifetime transforms us into the people we are called to be, people of abundance, peace, and grace.
What new spiritual practice would you like to install in your morning routine?
A successful morning starts the night before. To create a morning that powers an abundant business and an abundant life, we must start by deciding when to consistently go to bed.
When we wake up rested, we can choose the right activities to fuel a productive day.

On September 19th, I facilitated 90 real estate agents writing their 2020 business plans in Anchorage, AK.
Each year, agents start with big dreams and goals, however, many do not have a plan, an executable strategy of daily activities to improve their chances of creating the abundance they want.
What are your big goal for 2020?

On September 18th, I presented at the opening of the Alaska Association of Realtors Convention.
Do What Matters Today, where we talked about the value of our work, how to prioritize the activities that make a difference, and get into action.
Thank you to MVI Realty for sponsoring my session.
Sabbath-Keeping isn't just for you, it is also about you giving rest to others.
How can we practice the Sabbath in such a way as to provide rest for others and to value the full humanity of others? As well as providing rest for all of creation (animals, the land, water, etc).
Faith and work includes resting from our work and reflecting on that valuable rest.
