Ready to elevate your life? It boils down to your morning routine. Check out the way billionaires optimize their mornings here.

If you haven’t already picked up the book, we strongly suggest reading The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life. As stated by Marie Farlow, “It’s about a 3-step morning ritual that Robin created after working with leaders and high performers from around the world to create astonishing results”.

“While this morning habit will make you more productive, it’s about so much more than that. It’s about lowering your stress and maximizing your creativity, happiness, and growth.”

Sharma’s method is simple, but requires you to be disciplined. If you’re up to the challenge, you’ll see how much value and enrichment this routine can add to your life. This is the routine, that Sharma accredits Billionaires to Use:

5:00 – 5:20am: Move

Get your blood pumping in any way you can, so long as the exercise is vigorous. As Sharma puts it “The way you feel when you first wake up is not the way you’re going to feel at 5:20.”

Shift from ‘tired’ to ‘on fire’ by 5:20 am - Robin Sharma


  • Lengthens life (lengthens telomeres)
  • Primes brain for intense focus after you workout
  • Triggers the “Neurobiology of greatness” - Sharma

5:20 – 5:40am: Reflect

This 20 minute time period of your first hour of the day is carved out to rejuvenate. That is, to restore mindfulness through activities that help you feel in tune with yourself. Connecting with your heart and soul can take the shape and form of:

  • Journaling
  • Visualizing
  • Praying
  • Meditating


  • Slows down aging
  • Primes brain for focus
  • Enhances morning through feelings of peace and calm

5:40 – 6:00am: Grow

Stretch your brain & expand your horizons through educational materials including:

  • Books
  • Podcasts
  • Audiobooks
  • Learning & Inspirational Videos


  • Sharpens your brain
  • Fuels motivation
  • Keeps you ahead of the industry and competitive in the market

6:00 - 8:00am: Connect

The hours of 6 am to 8 am are carved out for you, for family connection and for your personal pursuits. By default, this time slot will look different for everyone, although here are the general guidelines:

  • No social media
  • No news
  • No message checking


  • Enhances the tone of your morning
  • Increases the likelihood for higher quality output and productivity for the rest of the day
  • Enriches personal well being
  • Reduces “digital dementia”
  • Instills feelings of calmness

And that’s what the morning routine of billionaires looks like! The hours between 8-1 pm should be used for high level thinking work, and a “world class work ethic” mindset. If you’re able to accomplish this routine, which will be difficult, you will improve drastically and dramatically change the trajectory of your productivity and wellness. That’s for certain.
