    Daily Routines - How regimented should one be, any recommendations on sticking to one

    Friends,

    I'm working on setting up a proper routine/daily plan to keep on top of things. All I have read into the subject so far is this. Do any of you have recommendations on other resources worth reading?

    I'm just trying to get a bit more structure in my day to day life, this is following on from a long discussion I had with lagwoman about our plans for the next year, we got something promising down on paper but it's somewhat reliant on us being well behaved financially. I thought the best way to keep us in good shape is to sort out our problems with planning out meals, an extension of that is keeping all of the other shit that conflicts with that in line (for example doing the dishes regularly and starting meals earlier).

    Do any of you follow an actual documented routine daily?

    I don't know if this is true for everyone, but for me it seems pretty much the only ways to consistently do exercise is to make it one of my main hobbies (if I love it) or to make it an inflexible part of your routine (if I dont). I've varied between these over the years.

    Consistency of going to bed at the same time has also had a very massive influence on my motivation and energy levels. This leads back to the time you eat, as eating too late will push back your sleep time or else disturb your sleep. I dont think you need to be strictly regimented but just aim for something early and don't let it slip toooo much.

    Stuff like doing the dishes etc - the only way to do this consistently is to do it the second you notice it needs doing. "I'll just play another game then do it" never works. Fortunately for washing up its SO MUCH EASIER to do it as you go along while you cook - it takes 1/3 the time because its still hot / uncongealed.

    Final point: loads of studies have confirmed that the one way in which money CAN consistently buy you happiness is by buying time/convenience - i.e. get a cleaner in once every other week, get a dishwasher, etc. Don't assume that just because you CAN do something yourself, that you should. Put a value on your time and the level of enjoyment (or discomfort) you get doing it.

    YMMV but that sums it up for me

    Great advice so far.

    #1 Exploit low wage cleaners in order to have an extra half an hour every day to pontificate about females in CEO positions
    #2 Take a shit every morning
    #3 Chaos

    Shitting on company time is also a good shout if you can't pinch one out before work.

    If you are starting off as a disorganized poorly motivated mess, then you should slowly integrate the routine into your life. Write down the perfect routine you want to achieve, then look at each item on the routine and number them by priority.

    Start your first week just committing to the top priority item and leave the rest as you would normally do it. The second week just commit to doing the 1st and 2nd priority items and leave the rest normal. The third week do the 1st, 2nd and 3rd etc etc.

    If you fuckup and miss out on the routine you have been building up on any particular day, just shrug your shoulders and commit to doing better the next day. Just make sure on those fuckup days you take care of anything that might hurt your routine the day after.

    You will probably find that you don't ever reach the end of your priority list. That's fine. Too much regimentation can turn you into a boring fucker. Just get the top 80% of your priorities organised and let the rest stay dynamic.

    This. Besides, if you're good at something, never do it for free.
