To get the most out of my day, I must control my mornings, conquer my afternoons, and enjoy my evenings. That is why I go to bed at 08:00 PM and wake up at 03:45 AM. To make this happen, I avoid caffeine after 10:00 AM, and alcohol after 06:00 PM. I also end my overtime work by 05:00 PM, and turn off all my electronics at 07:00 PM.
I take care of business first thing in the morning. I work on research, writing and speaking presentations from 04:00 AM to 06:30 AM. And do consult and interviews from 08:00 AM to 10:30 AM. I do not deal with email or phone calls after 02:30 PM. At the end of my workday, I reflect on what I achieved while updating my gratitude and achievement journal. And I make a to-do list for the next day to close shop.
