This episode ofThe Tim Ferriss Showis a bit of an experiment. Most the time, I interview many world-class people, and I ask them many, many questions to try and figure out what makes them good at what they do. Many of you have wondered what would happen if I flipped the script and had to answer my own questions. In this episode, I decided to do just that and answer one of your most common questions: what does your morning routine look like? What you’ll find here are the five things I do every morning. Theseare the five things I’d like to accomplish on an “ideal day.” If I can hit at least three of these items, then I’ve won the morning. And, as the saying goes, “If you win the morning, you win the day.” Let me know if you like this type of episode by responding to me on Twitter (@tferriss) orFacebook.
