Whether you’re a morning person or not, if you want to maximize the quality of your work and life there’s one sure fire way to set yourself up for success: don’t snooze. According to Drs. Rob and Kirti Carter, the pursuit to becoming a better leader, thinker and person is a matter of implementing practical, daily habits and their research has shown that it all starts with those waking hours. Their advice? If you win the morning, you win the day.
Rob and Kirti Carter’s quest to improve life through positive thinking and productive imagination lead them to write their new book The Morning Mind: Use Your Brain to Master Your Day and Supercharge Your Life. Noted human performance experts, the Carters sat down with our host Skip Lineberg to talk about why mornings are so difficult, the myth of night owls and morning larks, and whether you should get rid of your coffee or not. They also dive deep into the lizard versus wizard brain, the benefits of being present, the science of smell and the habit loop. Get your notebook ready because if you’re looking for practical ways to create a healthy life and competitive edge in the office, this episode of Leadership Essentials is for you.
