From Bill Gates to Tim Ferriss, the presence of morning rituals amongst the ultra-successful, and the apparent lack of them amongst us mortals, probably has you wondering why they do such a crazy thing every day, and if you should follow suit (reluctantly of course). Before exploring the incredible value of this small change, hacking the routines of 25 heavy hitters, and then learning how to craft your own morning ritual, let me be the first to tell you that this has been written about before, in fact many times before.

So don’t get discouraged when three weeks in and you still don’t see that new habit as a lasting one. Actually, some people take up to six to nine months. But how about the opposite, that is, breaking a habit? Not just habits — bad habits. As it turns out, forming and breaking a habit is like give and take. In order to stop a bad habit, you have to create new ones (hopefully good ones!) to replace it. Here are five bad habits to throw away to upgrade your everyday life and become a better person.
