In this video, Alex Hormozi discusses the concept of a millionaire morning routine and how people often approach productivity in the wrong way.

He argues that productivity is about getting more done per unit of time and that people should focus on tasks that have the most leverage, rather than adding more tasks to their routine. He also suggests that people should train themselves to be able to start working immediately upon waking up, rather than spending a long time on a morning routine.

Hormozi shares his own morning routine, which involves having a cup of coffee and getting straight to work, and ordering his tasks based on their level of leverage.

  • Productivity is getting more done per unit of time.
  • The worst morning routine would be the longest and have lots of steps and processes involved.
  • There is no magic pill or super five-step thing that will get you to do the work.
  • The perfect morning routine should maximize the volume of work you do and the leverage that you create from the volume.
  • Order your day in the order in which you have the highest leverage activities to the lowest leverage activities.

Defining Productivity

  • Productivity is getting more done per unit of time.
  • People who move faster in life don't actually move faster, they get more done per unit of time.
  • Adding more non-productive tasks to a morning routine doesn't make sense.
  • Order your tasks in order of the leverage that they have.
  • The act of entrepreneurship is consistently making trades of what can buy time back with.

The Worst Morning Routine

  • The worst morning routine would be the longest and have lots of steps and processes involved.
  • Becoming very reliant on that thing is not productive.
  • Discipline is more important than the thing itself.
  • The easiest way to disprove something is to find an instance where it doesn't exist and still have the outcome.
  • There is no one perfect morning routine that all millionaires follow.

The Anti-Routine Concept

  • There is no magic pill or super five-step thing that will get you to do the work.
  • There's work to be done, and the question is how quickly can I begin that work.
  • The perfect routine would be waking up and immediately working.
  • Most people spend most of their time doing things that don't matter.
  • The fundamental equation of productivity is how much you do multiplied by how much leverage you have on the stuff you do.

The Perfect Morning Routine

  • The perfect morning routine should maximize the volume of work you do and the leverage that you create from the volume.
  • Order your day in the order in which you have the highest leverage activities to the lowest leverage activities.
  • If you enjoy thinking about how to get more leverage for the work you have, watch the video on leverage and assessing opportunities.
  • Try compressing your morning routine to take less time and see how you do.
  • The ability to warm up your brain is trainable, so your routine should shrink and your number of hours of work should increase.
