Productivity: Checklist: Charles Ngo’s Daily Routines
Here’s a checklist of what I do on a daily basis.
Why are routines and rituals important?
As much as 40% of our behavior each day is automated and due to habits. By constructing routines, we’re taking control of our lives.
We’re paying attention and doing what matters.
You can take a look at my routines that there’s a HUGE emphasis on health.
I’ve seen too many people who work so much that they become out of shape and have tons of health issues down the road.
I don’t recommend following my routines exactly. They were designed for me, and a little hardcore for most people.
I don’t even do everything on this list everyday. I would say I’m able to accomplish 80% of it. But the mere act of planning means 80% is better than only completing 20%.
It’s ok not to be perfect.
I suggest starting off with constructing a morning routine. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Just do what you can handle and focus on making it a habit.
Remember that consistency is more important than intensity.
