If you have a timer on your coffee pot you may have a fresh hot cup awaiting you each  morning because you routinely set it the night before, however, if you don't have that particular luxury then set everything up the night before and simply push the "on" button in the morning.  Or, if you prefer a cup of tea, set up the kettle with water, put out the cup and tea bag, and simply turn on the stove in the morning.  

Then, while your coffee and tea are brewing you can attend to a few other breakfast details.  I say a "few" because most of this, too, can be done the night before leaving little to do during the time crunch of the morning.   I know of this because I grew up with a mother who did a nightly set up for breakfast and I followed her role modeling while our children were growing up.

While everyone is briefly gathered around the kitchen table, go through the calendar voicing reminders of appointments for the day or any other last minute details necessary to make for a smooth flow to the day.  Fill the kitchen sink with hot soapy water and request that as each person finishes their breakfast they can simply slip them into the sink or into the dishwasher, before they leave the kitchen.   The kitchen cleans up so much faster when everyone does their part.

If your family tends to drag its feet in the morning try putting on some music with a lively beat and see if that doesn't put some pep in their step.  Well, it looks like you're ready for the day, you've all had breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen…now don't forget those last minute hugs and kisses!
