Day #25: "Grad School Mode" Is Over

Over the past couple of months, I've complained that I've been stuck in "grad school mode" since leaving MIT.


That is now over. I am in a new stage of life, and I want to adjust my daily routine to reflect that.


Just like I've started vlogging and blogging every day, I am also doing the following:


  • Hitting the gym 3x a day (until weight lifts get heavy, then I'll do just 2x a day with calisthenics to alternative with weightlifting).


  • Learning how to code every single day after work


  • Working on Founder to Founder every day

I've learned one thing - your daily routine consists of inertia and momentum. The best habits create a daily routine with momentum in the right direction. The worst habits result in inertia in the wrong direction.


I'm building good habits from now on, no exceptions.


I should also state that I must get my priorities to advance. I have been wrong to ignore completing my journal papers. This is my priority for the next two weeks as I work to start and finish the Forbes stories this month.
