Episode 204: Dailies: What They Are and How to Incorporate Them

How do you start your day out? Do you roll out of bed and let life dictate your plans, or do you do things every day that set your intentions, your mind and your spirit up for whatever success means to you? Today Neil and I are sharing how we go about our daily routines, or dailies as we call them, why they're so important, how to get started with them, and what you'll get out of making dailies a priority.
