It’s early morning for me. Sitting at my desk, answering e-mails, replying to comments, and I thought, why not write a post about my daily routine.
The truth is that we need a routine of sorts, because it ensures that we’re getting things done.
Here’s my daily routine, as of right now.
Wake up at 4:30 a.m.
Drink water. Plenty of it.
Make a mental list of what needs to be done for today.
Reply to e-mails, comments, etc.
Listen to a podcast.
Walk out the door at 6:30 AM.
Eat breakfast, drink coffee, work, work, work.
Go to the Gym (at around 8 AM).
Walk out of the gym at around 10AM.
Eat. Drink the second cup of coffee.
Arrive home at 1:30 PM.
Work, work, work.
Eat at 4:30 PM.
Read a book, listen to a podcast, watch something educational, like a documentary.
Eat at 7:30 PM.
9PM. Lights out.
My routine is quite simple, and the only thing that I do differently than most people is that:
- I carry my laptop with me everywhere I go, and I work in half an hour increments, so after I finish a meal, I work for half an hour, after I walk out of the gym, I work for half an hour, sometimes I work while on the treadmill.
- I workout every day.
As for waking up at 4:30 a.m., I only started doing that within the last few months — before that it was more like 6:30, so I’ve really become an early riser just in the last year, but waking up early helps me get a lot more done. A lot. By midday I feel as if I’ve accomplished so much, that I could take the rest of the day if I wanted to: all posts are written, edited, and scheduled across all my blogs, e-mails have bee replied to, I did my workout…
So, what about your daily routine? Do you have one? What does it look like?
