Imitation is not only the sincerest form of flattery, but it can also be a wise business move. Take, for instance, convenience store car washes. What better way to improve service than to imitate a few moves from the pros?

To perform my best when I’m at work, I have crafted morning rituals and practices that maximize my energy, productivity, creativity and leadership capabilities throughout the day. Starting each day right is critical. I am usually up by 6 a.m. and cannot stress the importance of starting early. Many people start by immediately sifting through emails and listening to voicemails. But these are among the worst ways to begin a day.
