Publisher's Summary

The 5 A.M. Miracle is a resource guide for high-achievers. It is for anyone who has a wild passion for life and is in search of a structured system that will hone those passions, clarify their big goals, and produce real, amazing results.

1. Begin Your Day the Right Way

Yes, it's true, I'm a big fan of early mornings. But, more importantly than waking up at an arbitrary time like 5:00 a.m., I'm a strong believer in intentionality. Choosing to wake up with a written plan is something most people just never do, and it's astonishing how much it can change your life once you embrace this single habit.

2. The 5 AM Blueprint: Seven Steps to Extraordinary Productivity

The bulk of the audiobook breaks down my blueprint for unprecedented progress. From healthy habits and productivity strategies, to review systems and professional-grade daily routines, you will find more actionable content than you could possibly imagine.

3. Built-In 30-Day Action Plan

Let's not forget that at the end of the audiobook, I summarize the multitude of ideas into an easy-to-follow 30-day plan just so you have a clear plan of action.

On my list of essential productivity books.

This book should be included in every list of essential productivity books, at least in my humble opinion. I have read quite a few books on the subject and The 5 A.M. Miracle somehow sums everything up, while retaining quality. There are mentions of other really essential books on the topic such as Essentialism by Greg McKeown, The ONE Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan and, of course, Getting Things Done by David Allen. But Sanders incorporates many key ideas mentioned in all of these books into The 5 A.M. Miracle and adds on to them with his own ideas and experiences which I personally implement (and see the benefits of) and which I firmly believe should be implemented by anyone who wants to get the best out of each day.

But what I found most valuable in the book are his practical, step-by-step tips and guidelines, or rather action plans for actualizing the 5 A.M. Miracle into your own life. This makes the book easy to follow, easy to sum up and review after reading, which is crucial for actually getting yourself to take action. So I would also recommend rereading the book or at least just going through the quick reviews and action plans at the end of each chapter (and at the end of the book).

Good practical tips

Liked a few of the ideas- quarterly planning, ideal morning and evening. If I could implement Inbox zero, desktop zero, homebase zero and project zero, I would feel like a rockstar!

A Plan For Life!

Would you listen to The 5 A.M. Miracle again? Why?

Yes. Will probably make this a yearly thing. As my life changes, so will all of the things that are discussed in this book. If I don't re-evaluate from time-to-time, then I've probably missed the whole point of the book and the process!

What does Jeff Sanders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I'm used to listening to his podcast - so it was like having an extended version of my Monday morning commute. His enthusiasm is contagious.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 5 A.M. Miracle?

Too many to list here, but I think the most powerful lesson that can be drawn from this book is that our lives require review. A frequent review - to make sure that the plan set forward is still viable, workable and relevant.

Any additional comments?

If you put the work in that is outlines in this book, it's totally worth it. I would highly recommend this to anyone that knows they have goals and dreams, but just need a way to get their minds organized around how to make them happen.

Way more than morning routines

I bought this audiobook expecting some motivation to wake up early and start a morning routine, but this book goes beyond that. He also teaches about night routines, goals, productivity, getting organized, scheduling. This is one of the best books on productivity that I've read (and I've read a lot!)

Difference maker

The author does a great job breaking down each step. I actually have not adopted the 5am portion of the program but the other items I did put into use have changed my life! I just finished listening to it again since my next quarter is about to start and am going to implement even more items. I am looking forward to listening to his new book.

The narration of this book is UNBEARABLE.

I don't know why this guy made the decision to talk as though he was a radio announcer from the 1950's doing a breakfast cereal commercial, but it RUINS the book. Utterly ruins it. I can't even make it past the narration to really get into the content. And shame on those around him for not sitting him down and letting him know that his cadence was terrible.

Make another one brother

This book was excellent. Just what I needed for early morning motivation.
I hope he turns this into a series. I want more content on the 5AM miracle. I will definitely tune into the podcast!

Great System for Focus and Productivity!

I have followed a number of systems and found 'The 5 Am Miricle' to be one of the best for improving focus and energy.
The system gives a holistic approach to organising your morning day and evening in a productive and energetic way.

Lots of great tips

This book is great to get you motivated to achieving more out of your day. There is a complete blueprint to organise your life which you can use in it's entirety or just take out the bits which are useful to you, as I have done. Well worth the listen. The only slight negative is getting past the author's annoying voice, but persevere, the information is well worth it.
