Every day people all over the world pour a cup of coffee to start their day. It represents a routine. A routine is defined as an “unvarying and constantly repeated formula.”

Leaders can learn a lot from coffee drinkers. Namely, find a routine and stick with it. A constantly repeated formula can lead to leadership success.

I am not saying that routine should be your only focus. There are many times you should live outside the box. However, you will never have success unless you are willing to establish some disciplined routines for learning and leading.

Find a routine that helps you lead yourself first and you will be ready to lead others.

The next time you pour yourself a cup of coffee, may it remind you to be relentless in your self-leadership routines.



What are some of your routines that make you a better leader?
