Every week, I interview entrepreneurs on The Morning Upgrade podcast, and we talk about their morning routines. I think it’s a great way to learn about new ideas that may inspire you to develop your own morning routine. Even if you have a morning routine, some of these ideas may help you make a few tweaks that really turn the dial for you.
Here is a look at the routines from my guests on episodes 101-110.

In Episode #101, I spoke with EA Csolkovits about his morning routine. EA is the founder of Givers University. He wakes up each morning at 5:30 and gets up at 6 a.m. The first thing he likes to accomplish is an update on his computer; then, he reads his Bible. Six mornings a week, he works out when he is done. He takes a rest day on the seventh day.
