First thing, every morning, you should scan the headlines and find out what is going on in the world – from local to international news. Mentioned the recent history-making Cuba news to a friend the other day. His response – “Woah! They’ve opened up Cuba? When did that happen?” Scan people, scan.

Thanks to Steeleworker Jay Jones for sending us 7 Things Successful People Always Do Before Breakfast – yep, that news thing is in there. I’m staying with friends in New York City for a few days this week. They live in the same building as Steven Spielberg, Steve Martin, and Bono to name a few. Bet just about everyone in this building does all 7 of these things daily …

  1. Start early
  2. Think big thoughts
  3. Check the news
  4. Check and send email
  5. Set top 3 priorities
  6. Check in with loved ones
  7. Prepare a power breakfast

… what’s your plan today?
