WHAT IS THE ONE HABIT THAT HAS HELPED YOU SUCCEED?
There’s a lot to accomplish before 6 a.m. Rising early, having a game plan and attacking it has been a habit that’s helped me execute both in business and outside of my work family, at home. I find creative strategy and tactical thoughts to be especially pure and rich before 6 am.
