Morning and evening routines, Darren Hardy writes, are the “bookends” of a successful life because they make sure your priorities stay in focus. The important things like exercise in the morning and journaling at night get done. The article also mentions how routines can prevent decision fatigue — a phenomenon we’ve seen before as having the potential to zap our willpower and cause poorer decisions.

Some tips Art of Manliness suggests for creating solid “bookends” for your day include incorporating your major life goals into your morning and evening routines and getting inspired by the routines other great people had (like William Blake’s “Think in the morning, act in the noon, read in the evening, and sleep at night.”).

Do you use consistent routines to be more productive and successful?
