This is not a "How to."

ere is no “one size fits all” when it comes to routine. Dr. Iscovich shares his original study of routine—learn through his observations how routine can improve longevity, performance, and adaptability. You will be better equipped to construct a routine that works best for you!
Conventional wisdom suggests that the best way to navigate our noisy new world is to accept change. Open up to novelty. Go with the flow. Live in the moment. Embrace the relentless pelting of content minute by minute. But routine experts Angel Iscovich, MD, Joe Garner, and Michael Ashley are here to say that’s a bad idea. Humans don’t just benefit from structure; they require it.
Years of observation and practice led to their breakthrough concept of routineology, the key to optimize your life and the cure for crisis. Routineology’s fundamental prescriptive is to look inside and live your life in a “time bubble” to find purpose, meaning, and joy. Offering insights from top performers and stories of triumph over adversity, this book demonstrates that routine isn’t just a good idea—it’s imperative for surviving and thriving today.
Live a life of deeper meaning and navigate toward a better world with The Art of Routine.
