Is Waking Up Early Bad For You?

Daily quote:

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. -Confucius

Daily tip or recommendation:

Buy a sound machine. Or a box fan. White noise for sleep helps you get into a deeper sleep, it’s a trick for falling asleep faster as your body gets used to it and it blocks out sounds in the morning that may disrupt sleep cycles. It’s amazing and I travel with 3 usually.

Daily book recommendation:

Deep Work - you’ve probably heard me talk about Deep Work at some point. I’m an emphatic believer in the importance of a daily deep work routine and how it revolutionizes work. So ya, read the book.

Daily health tip:

Deep breaths. I need to do this more myself. Take a minute or so each day or multiple times a day and take deep breaths. Game changer for reducing stress and calming your mind as the day goes on and stress builds up.

Daily Cooking Tip

Try brining. Brine chicken and other white meat. Brine your own pork belly. Anything that preseasons meat overnight is HUGE For your meals tasting better.

Daily thoughts about money:

When it comes to stocks, my strategy is to focus on fewer companies that I believe are going to be here for the long run. This is not investment advice, this is just my strategy.

When you build the mindset as an owner of Apple or Amazon or Berkshire Hathaway, for example, you will be less likely to sell when you shouldn’t and buy more when you should. Stock investing is company investing, never forget that, so think about what companies you want to own in your life. Then buy and hold forever.
