After five weeks of experimenting, I ended up designing a morning routine that was ideal for me.

Just over a month ago, I decided to embark on an experiment to follow the routines and schedules of successful people.
I wanted to see what it would do to my productivity, happiness levels, and wellbeing.
For an entire working week each, I tried to mirror what Jack Dorsey, Arianna Huffington, Barack Obama, Benjamin Franklin, and Indra Nooyi do in the morning.
After five weeks of experimenting, I ended up designing a morning routine that was ideal for me.
In the process, I also learned many lessons — both from following routines perfectly, and from failing to miserably.
1. Exercising in the morning always made my day more productive
2. Meditating made a surprising difference in my productivity
3. The hardest time to do the experiment was in the middle of the week
4. Getting the right amount of sleep made a huge difference in my mornings
5. Having a bedtime routine was pivotal to getting good quality sleep
6. It's important to quit habits that are not working for you
7. Tracking how I spent my time forced me to come to terms with how I could do it better
8. Having morning and bedtime routines helped me make decisions based on what I truly wanted
9. I began to realize what activities, tasks, and goals were truly important to me
10. I subconsciously adopted the habits that worked and abandoned the ones that didn't
