An ideal morning for me would start between 5 and 5:30 AM. I would take care of the dog and grab a glass of clear, cool water.
For the next hour, I would have my devotions and read. It would start with prayer, Bible reading, and taking in other inspirational material. Further reading would be a chapter of a non-fiction book that I had been working through. Then I would read my favorite blogs. People like Scott Wimberly, Dan Miller, and Jon Acuff. After that I would take about an hour to do some sort of exercise. It could be weight lifting, running, or walking. Next I would have breakfast & coffee with my favorite person: my wife. We would leisurely eat our meal together of maybe oatmeal, pancakes, or scrambled eggs. Yogurt, toast, and fruit would also be a part of that first meal of the day. After eating, talking, and reviving we would pray together, clean up, and head for work.
My work would be in my home office where I would be for the next three hours. My job would be monitoring my distribution business. I would check the stats from the day before to see what is selling and to see where any adjustment could be made to better my business. I would restock my supply as needed. Then I would tackle any customer service issues and questions by email. As the morning approached eleven o'clock, I would push away from my desk. To clear my mind, I would take a bike ride or motorcycle ride and enjoy some great scenery. Or I would take the short trip into town to meet a friend at a coffee shop to converse and share ideas.
That would be an ideal morning, and an ideal life, for me.
