This One Practice Changes Everything: Your 10-Minute Morning Routine   It’s December 2019 and my inbox is full of emails that say ”not to scare you  or anything but it’s December and the end of the decade!!!!!!” “…what are you going to do in the last month of the whole decade to make it meaningful?!?!?!” The message is, you’ve got 30 days left until the deadline.
