Secret to success: Daily rituals

Your No. 1 ritual should be: Use more rituals.

Just having a ritual is key. It doesn’t matter what Warren Buffett does before breakfast—the important thing is what you do before breakfast. The more consistently you do it, the more powerful it will be.

Rituals help you savor life. Ever make a toast before you drink? It helped that drink taste better. Enjoy the ritual of preparing your morning joe? It makes the coffee taste better.

Rituals curb procrastination. Doing something by rote reduces anxiety.

Rituals help you excel. Athletes have crazy rituals like not changing their “lucky” socks. And you know what? This stuff works. Whatever gives you confidence works. If it makes you feel lucky, you’ll be lucky.
