I’m Benjamin Spall, the co-author of My Morning Routine (Portfolio/Penguin) in which today’s most talented creatives and businesspeople share their secrets to unlocking greater energy, focus, and calm—starting first thing in the morning. (Between 2012-2019 I was the founding editor of a website of the same name.)
In the book my co-author Michael Xander and I interview a cast of characters including the president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Ed Catmull, Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo, and General Stanley McChrystal (among sixty-one others).
I’ve written for outlets including the New York Times, the New York Observer, Quartz, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, CNBC, the Huffington Post, 99U, and more.
Originally from the United Kingdom, I now live in New York City.
Every Friday, I send out a short newsletter containing a new article from me, a quote from someone else, and a short list of links (no spam ever, unsubscribe any time):
