Jeff Sanders: The 5AM Miracle & How to Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast

“It’s the intentionality behind it that makes it work.”
— Jeff Sanders

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today, we are joined by Jeff Sanders, the public speaker and author behind the Amazon Bestseller, The 5AM Miracle.

I know what you’re thinking – 5AM is damn early – but stay with me, because morning rituals are really interesting and important.

In this episode, we’re going to learn how you can better dominate your day by hacking mornings to work in your favor – before you even have breakfast.

As someone who has really been struggling recently to get out of bed before 7AM, and who, to be completely honest, has been struggling to stay productive past 1pm, I was really interested in learning some strategies for hacking mornings and creating more effective days. As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of learning any productivity related hacks I can get my hands on, so I was really excited to dive into this episode.

As always, please share your thoughts with me on Twitter @gosuperhuman, and if you haven’t already, please remember to leave us a review on iTunes or Stitcher.
