I tend to zone out in the mornings. Some 20 years ago, if I started reading an article in the newspaper or a magazine, I would be absorbed by it long enough to open my retail store late. Nowadays, I don’t read newspapers or magazines, but I get caught on things like email, computer games, pinterest or any other site of those with tons of pictures and tons of links to more and more cool stuff. If I want to have a productive morning, I have to skip that. It’s not always possible, but take it one day at a time.
