325: The Perfect Day Formula: Structure Equals Freedom! Have a Clear Vision and Laser-Focused Goals By Implementing The Five Pillars of Success with The World’s Most Disciplined Man Craig Ballantyne

Craig Ballantyne is the author of The Perfect Day Formula which shows you how to get the most out of every day and be as productive as possible, as opposed to putting out fires or just going through the motions. Craig has a number of proven strategies and easy hacks to win the day.

For example: know what you can control, limit your decision making (i.e. Mark Zuckerberg wears the same hoodie and grey shirt every day), have a vision (clear picture) of where you want to be in the next 3-5 years, have laser-focused process goals instead of huge unattainable ones. Know yourself and use "self rules" (but not laws) to stay on track, i.e. if you're looking to lose weight, keep junk food out of the house. These are just a few of the tried and true methods Craig recommends.

Craig's Five Pillars of Success

  1. Have the same bedtime and wake time every day
  2. Have 15 minutes of uninterrupted productive time (Stephen King writes 2,000 words a day)
  3. Perform an activity daily for your health (i.e. meditation)
  4. Focus on your #1 wealth building activity every day (such as recording a podcast or writing a book)
  5. Have a not-to-do rule to limit backsliding
