Welcome to The Routine

A real-life productivity newsletter, The Routine examines how awesome people organize and prioritize their busy lives. It’s like if the Harvard Business Review and the Strategist had a kid who spent a lot of time with Goop as its babysitter.

The Routine is all about:

🧰 Tools and systems to keep you on track
🖥️ Doing your best work amid the other demands
🧸 Taking care of kids, family, and friends
🍅 Eating for pleasure and nutrition
💪 Fitting in fitness
💄 Recognizing the restorative power of beauty and fashion
🚲 Making time for hobbies and personal goals
🧠 Ensuring that rest and emotional health are not an afterthought

What’s all included in The Routine

The Routine Interview (how the impressive people do it)
Media Diet (what they watch/listen to/read)
What’s Working (follow along as I kaizen my life)
• Plus cool extras for paid subscribers!
