The importance of a consistent sleep schedule

Set yourself a time for bed and a wake time. Then stick to it. A consistent sleeping schedule allows you to predictably plan all the other things you intend to do.

  • Don't hit the snooze button, but practice getting up immediately.
  • Set aside the hour before bed for reading, journaling or quiet hobbies. It will make falling asleep easier.
  • Keep the same wake time on weekends as it is much easier to maintain.

For many, the major obstacles to the good life is the abundance of temptations keeping us in the same place:

If you want to improve your life, you have to be committed and start from the right foundation.

Ensure that you speak with someone who is ahead of you in at least one dimension of their life, once per week. If you're working on your health, have a conversation with the person who is fit at the gym.

Working towards any goal is the most important thing you can do. The second most important is to read books about how to do it better.

The productivity system is not just about getting more work done - it's about organising all of your goals and efforts.

Writing expands our memory by giving us a buffer to store thoughts before they fade from our memory. Writing also enables self-reflection. When you write down a long series of thoughts and then read it, you simultaneously articulate an idea and critique it.

This could be a new restaurant, a new activity, event, or just walking in a part of town you've never been to before.

Having a big project you're always working on helps to keep all the other foundational practices together. A project that will last 1-2 years works best to maximize effort.

Exercise sharpens your mind and improves your mood. It is also entirely under your control.

Write down whenever you spend money on anything. A spreadsheet can be used to track your spending.
