Written by an inspiring guy that nearly died in a serious car accident, the book puts six simple practices into a potent morning ritual represented by the acronym SAVERS:
In the original version, this was the order, and the time for each step was 10 minutes, which was meant to create your "hour of power" each morning.
Today, Hal talks about a 6-minute version, with 1 minute each, because who can spare 7 minutes after all? And the order of the activities changes from person to person. So, if you're into it, experiment to make it your own.
Is this rocket science? Not quite.
Have I tried it? Yep.
Have I learned to stick with it? Nope. Something about getting three kids ready and out the door for school has a way of creating less than peaceful and productive mornings. #SavorTheChaos
Am I still trying to do pieces of this practice on a regular basis? Heck ya.
Fun fact: If you were to read just 10 minutes each morning, then over a year, you'd end up reading about 3,650 pages per year. If the average book is 275 pages, then that's about 10 books per year. Not too shabby.
Or you could go hog wild and try to read 100 books per year like the Founder and CEO of Unmistakable Media. This Inc.com article shows the steps used by Srinivas Rao to accomplish this feat of fun and productivity.
