Best-selling author and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss has interviewed hundreds of ultra-successful people, from billionaires and chess prodigies to professional athletes and movie stars.
He's asked most of them about their morning rituals and, along the way, has tested out their suggestions.
In his latest book, "Tools of Titans," the author details the five morning rituals he's settled on after experimenting with those of the most successful people.
Ferriss is human, too. While he aims to check off all five rituals every morning, that only happens about 30 percent of the time, he writes: "If I hit three out of five, I consider myself having won the morning. And if you win the morning, you win the day."
