In the world of business you hear a lot about daily schedules and morning routines…
So, in this week’s newsletter I thought I’d share with you 4 millionaire/billionaire daily routines as well as my own.
But first, why would you want to adopt a millionaire’s routine?
Millionaire routines have a wide range of benefits, including:
- Keeping you focused on important tasks
- Helps you prioritize your time better each day
- Increases your productivity
- Helps reduce stress
- Gives you more control over your life and results
- Helps you control your energy levels
- Helps you make healthier choices
- Improves your focus and reduces brain fog and forgetfulness
- Gives you more time to achieve your goals
- Improves happiness, and more!
So let’s get started.
Why You May Want To Wake Up At 3:30 AM
Mark Wahlberg’s day starts at 3:30 am.
From then until 11 am he prays, takes various supplements, works out, has a post workout meal, plays golf, and has a few smaller meals.
From 11 am to 7 pm he takes work meetings, has lunch, picks up his kids from school, has another workout, has a shower and spends time with his family/has dinner before bed at 7:30 pm.
He eats a high protein diet of turkey, chicken, egg whites, and white rice.
How To Live Like The Rock
Dwayne Johnson, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, also starts his day at 3:30 am.
He’s one of the rare people who don’t need much sleep and gets anywhere from 3 to 5 hours a night.
He starts his day with light cardio for 30-50 minutes after his coffee, after which he has breakfast.
His diet is very important, and he usually starts his day with beef and oatmeal.
Other staples in his diet include chicken, broccoli, halibut, rice, asparagus, leafy salads, baked potato, mushroom, onions, and peppers, as well as casein protein.
Quiet time to himself is very important and he often sacrifices 2 hours of sleep just to achieve this.
He likes to get 10-12 hours of work done each day, and his day includes a 2-3 hour workout in the afternoon or morning depending on what his other commitments are.
Before bed he relaxes and answers emails, then sleeps for 5 hours or so and wakes up to do it all again.
The Daily Routine Of a Real Life Tony Stark
One of the world’s most recognizable CEOs, Elon Musk wakes up at a respectable 7 am.
He sleeps 6-6.5 hours per night, and says sleeping in affects his performance MORE than sleeping for fewer hours.
FUN FACT: Showering is one of the most important parts of his day, because it wakes him up and puts him in the right headspace.
He then drops his kids at school on his way to work.
A famous workaholic, Musk claims to work around 11-14 hours per day.
His work day is split up into 5 minute windows, and he often works so hard he skips lunch.
He isn’t as crazy about nutrition as The Rock or Mark Wahlberg, and loves diet Coke.
As a result, his physique and health take a backseat to his work.
After work he spends some quality time with the family before beginning work again at 10 pm after the kids are asleep.
He works for around 3 hours before sleeping at 1 am.
A Day In The Life Of A Serial Entrepreneur
A member of the infamous 5 am club, Richard Branson likes waking early to spend time with his family and exercise before he begins his work day.
He lifts weights for 40 minutes each day to maintain his strength and fitness.
If he is on Necker Island, he’ll kitesurf until 9 am before he eats a nutritious breakfast of fruit salad and some muesli, nuts, and dried fruit…
And he won’t consume any milk or yogurt with his meal.
He begins his work day at 10 am answering emails and reading reports his team has sent through.
He’s known to have a bit of a tea addiction and sips it constantly, consuming as many as 20 cups each day.
In the afternoon he eats lunch and continues to work, taking calls and answering emails.
He begins winding down at around 5 or 6 pm before his favorite meal of the day, dinner.
After dinner, like some of the others in this newsletter, he’ll work for a few more hours before retiring to bed around 11 pm and sleeping for around 6 hours.
My Daily Schedule
My daily schedule has changed a lot because in the last few years I’ve made health my BIGGEST priority.
Because all the money in the world is meaningless without good health.
So many people prioritize money over health, like I did, and after years of doing that…
I realized it’s no way to live and if I ignored my health, it could get so bad there’s no way I could buy it back fast enough.
So let’s get into it.
I’m not a member of the 5 am club, and I start my day around 7-7:30 am.
I brush my teeth and I start off the morning with a big jug of warm water, NOT cold, because cold water isn’t good for you.
Then I do the attitude of gratitude. It’s important to be grateful for everything you have.
After daily gratitude, I exercise for around 90 minutes 5 days a week, as health is my most important investment.
My workouts change all the time.
It could be martial arts, weights, cardio, stretching, or a combination.
Each day I aim to get 5 solid hours or work done.
I usually finish my work day around 6 pm, and relax with Jenny for the rest of the night.
As my health is so important to me, I take daily supplements and multivitamins.
I eat blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and apples every day.
I also do intermittent fasting and only eat between 12 and 8 pm, so I fast for 16 hours every day.
I also don’t drink, smoke or vape, and aim to minimize my sugar intake.
I aim for 8 hours of sleep each night with a minimum of 7.
And that’s my typical day.
You don’t need to wake up early to be productive.
Some people work best at night, while others work best in the morning.
You’ll just need to figure out what your most productive hours are, then protect that time with your life.
The other important thing is diet, nutrition and exercise.
Your body is a machine and you want your machine to run as smooth as possible.
The way you do that is through maintenance (regular exercise) and giving it the right fuel (good food).
It’s really that simple.
Until next time… to your success,
These are the exact things I do to get more done in a day than most get done in a month, and make millions of dollars.
If you apply just a few of these strategies you’ll see your productivity increase many times over.
