Episode Show Notes

How we start our mornings can have a disproportionate impact on the success we experience throughout the rest of the day. And yet, many of us simply roll out of bed without any clear plan for how to effectively use our mornings. We sleep late and hit the snooze button multiple times, or we grab our phones first thing and dive right into the stress of work. But what if by intentionally setting aside time in the morning to invest in your physical and mental well-being, you could feel more confident and purposeful in both your life and your leadership?

Join us as we talk with University of Oregon’s Curtis Taylor—Associate Head Coach of their distinguished Track and Field team—as we discover how the routines of competitive sprinters can shed light on how we can design and improve our own morning routines.
