Our days are organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?
My typical day goes like this. Wake up at 6:00 am and going to the bathroom. Wash face. Brush teeth. Then go downstairs and brew a cup of coffee while listening to the morning news. Warm-up some fried rice and flip through social media. Afterwards I prepare to go to the YMCA and workout one of five different muscle groups. From 7:00 to 9:15, I am lifting, working on cardio, and ending with a group session of yoga for mindfulness.
To continue my day, I go to Starbucks and start my morning blog posts and sending out emails to network with strangers all over the world searching for people that will mutually benefit my entrepreneur mindset. Education, Economy, Technology, Marketing.
Some of the sights I use are Simbi, Meetup, Linkedin, and AngelList.
After a few hours, I get hungry again and grab lunch at a restaurant I haven’t tried before. Then I run errands from small tasks on my to do list like groceries, maintenance, and chores to consulting with small businesses on ways to capitalize on a competitive advantage.
Eventually, I end up back home and start streaming video games for 3 hours to get the mindless stimulus out of my system. Playing games like Crusader Kings 2, Civilization 5, and Factorio. Going through the process of uploading the gameplay and creating thumbnails, tagging, forming marketing campaigns on alpha and beta games so I can analyze the data to improve on later.
The day continues with work or free time to read, write, learn on EDX, and watch educational videos on history, science, and society. Then around 5:00 pm. I take a nap or am at work working. Days when I take a nap, I spend the rest of the day exploring the land around me and helping my family with technological issues.
This is a typical day in my life. However on weekends, there is a lot more activity such as snowboarding, ice skating, concerts, bowling, and social interactions. But no matter what the habits that remain constant are working out, writing my ideas, improving my business, and interacting with the vast world of like minded individuals.
