How do you get ready for your work day?

How do you wake up and start your day before locking into work mode? How do you guys get mentally sharp and the confidence running before your first phone call or even before your 2nd cup of coffee in the morning?

How do you start your day and prepare yourself for success

As strange as it sounds - first thing of each and every day is to make my bed. Gives me a sense of accomplishment, albeit it's just about the most simplistic task of all.

1.) deal with overnight emails of clients pissed off they bought from you along with clients asking to change a comma placement in the MSA
2.) get asked for the 14th time by management which deals are closing and why they aren't in yet
3.) Shower to rinse off the guilt for not prospecting the day beforeΒ 
4.) Psych myself up and get ready for another day of selling software people don't needΒ 
5.) Listen to sounds of the ocean to mellow out from the psych up
6.) Get the day started...

Coffee. Squats. Walk. Big breath. Kick ass for 3 hours. Let ADHD take me to another planet.

Make a coffee and sit back in bed to drink it, wakes me up but also relaxes me then get the blood pumping by going for a 30 / 45 minute walk and I'm ready to smile and dialΒ

Ideally - I wake up, go to the gym and workout, shower, either bike to work (yes to manhattan!) or WFH. write out a daily list of what I'm doing (including lists of prospects I'm reaching out to with all their details - if its a call blitz day, then I have a master list I check off as I call but also have a document handy for each one I can pull up).Β 

Still trying to figure out how to organize all this better because our CRM is crap.Β

I'm in the bad habit of getting up and showering 15 mins before I start my day (WFH am I right?). I need to start working out again.Β

You could try 30 seconds of planks right when you wake up. Push ups and jumping jacks in mid day. Then work up to going to work out.
