  1. Wake up early, preferably at least 30 minutes before you normally would (your brain runs out of "good" decision making power as the day goes on)
  2. Sleep a solid 8 hours: eat a spoonful of raw honey just before bed, don't use the phone right before bed, breath 4 seconds in and hold for 7 seconds then exhale for 8 seconds, and count from the number 300 backwards from 3 if that doesn't work, use the Sleep Cycle app to wake you up
  3. Make your bed first thing in the morning (it gives you one thing you accomplished today)
  4. Meditate: Take 1-2 hours of "quiet" time in the morning: don't listen to music, stay off the computer, and walk (or drive or run) to think about making your next move and conquering the day
  5. Take lots of breaks throughout the day to recharge (AWAY from the computer) and take at least 1-2 days away from the computer per week
  6. Drink Bulletproof Coffee: Wake up at 5AM and blend together 2 cups of low-acid unsalted coffee + 2 tbsp MCT oil + 2 tbsp ghee butter or unsalted irish Kerrygold butter. Abstain from eating anything else until 2PM in the afternoon.
  7. Drink tons of water instead of soda
  8. Read a book instead of watching TV (this is what Bill Gates does) and get a hobby outside of internet marketing or parenting
  9. Journal: spend 5 minutes getting the clutter, thoughts and problems out of your head (you don't need to solve them, just get clarity)
  10. Write down your Four Daily Tasks instead of just winging it (fourdailytasks.com/group)
