3. Get Your Rest
The more sleep deprived you feel, the more sensible it will seem to stay in bed in the morning. Turn off your TV and stop web surfing into the wee hours of the night. You won’t miss out on anything if you just go to sleep when your body asks you to, and you will more likely be on time and productive the next day.

4. Overestimate
When planning your schedule, allot a little more time than you think you’ll need for each task. This is especially true if you have children, because with kids in tow everything will be less efficient and more unexpected. Think about each thing you need to do in the morning, calculate how long it will take, and then add a few minutes to each step. You’ll be happy you did when you encounter a stain on your suit, traffic on the road, or a really slow carpool line at school.
