Create Everyday Rituals to Improve Productivity

Power up your daily coffee

If you know me, you may be aware that I am truly a lover of productivity - heck, I wrote a whole book about it.

Yet, I am not a big fan of routines. What I have built for myself over the years are specific rituals I can follow. Some of them even become habits.

Up to habits power 40% of our daily actions—the unconscious activities and routines we’ve developed over time.

For example, I wake up at 6 am on weekdays, have my coffee first, then meditate, do my journalling before the workday officially starts. Some people may call this a routine, but to me, it’s a series of powerful rituals.

The difference between a routine and a ritual is the attitude behind the action. While routines can be actions that need to be done—such as making your bed or taking a shower—rituals are viewed as more meaningful practices with a real sense of purpose.

Rituals do not have to be spiritual or religious, yet they are simple acts that keep you focused.

The power of rituals stems from the meaning we give to them. They are not part of a list of things to do. They are a task we elevate by ritualising it.
