Over the past 10 years, Tim Ferriss has interviewed hundreds of professionals at the tops of their fields.
He's learned their best practices, tried them himself, and then passed on his favorites to his audience.
One of the questions he's asked each of his podcast interview subjects is "What does your morning routine look like?" Along the way, he's found habits that he's incorporated into his own mornings, adjusting them as needed.
We recently spoke to Ferriss about his new book "Tribe of Mentors," and he told us how his morning routine has changed a bit over the past year since he wrote about it in his previous book, "Tools of Titans." We've drawn from both to showcase his routine.
Like his friend Jocko Willink, a retired Navy SEAL commander, Ferriss believes that morning routines should be strictly followed, to avoid wasting time thinking. He told us that, "in the morning and elsewhere, the more constraints I can create where I fly on autopilot and get a result I need or enjoy, the more horsepower, the more calories I have to allocate to being creative, and to doing things where thinking should actually be applied."
