    I go to school for 8 hours and spend 2 hours each day working on different IM projects.
    What about you?

    Get up earlier than chicks; work more than mules; eat worse than pigs; go to bed later than dogs.

    Its a daily effort in the beginning, then as you grow comfy into your routine you can split hours/ work full 8 hour day. The more ffort you put the more money you can possibly make.

    My schedule usually changes month over month with my wife's medical rotations.

    Currently:

    5:00am wake up time, fix her breakfast smoothie and coffee. Get chores done and check email in between sets of dumbbell exercises until 6:00am. Then I walk the dog while the wife gets ready for work. I get back at 6:30am before she leaves to make sure everything is together, then once she leaves I shower, get dressed, and go to the office before traffic starts to suck (getting in around 7:15am).

    7:15am to 11:30am is usually a combination of office work and rep management work with some meetings always thrown into the mix. Around 8:00am I walk with a few buddies to get some coffee from a shop about a quarter mile away. 11:30am I eat some lunch and then from 12:00pm to 1:00pm I usually walk around in the parking garage with a coworker, or outside if the weather is nice.

    1:00pm to 4:00pm is more of a combination of office work and rep management. At 4:00pm I usually run out of steam and go talk to my coworkers about politics or cars or movies or something until 4:30pm or so, when a few of us leave together. There's a girl who lives in the same apartment complex as my wife and I do, and she drives like a perfect maniac, so I follow her and we weave through the traffic together.

    I get home around 4:50pm to 5:00pm, then prep and make dinner, walk the dog again, and check email for the last time. Sometimes I screw around on BHW, but that's intermittent throughout the whole day. She gets home around 6:30pm, we eat, I clean up and prep things for the next day, and we sit and chill and watch Netflix until about 9:00pm. At nine, we head to bed and I read her AskReddit threads until she falls asleep.

    It's a good life.

    On the days she has off we try to get in as much adventure as we can. When she has to work overnight, I make myself dinner once I get home, then go to the gym and get some running/lifting in from 6:30pm to 7:45pm or so. Then I come home and grind away on my own projects until about 10:00pm.

    Wake up at 8.30AM. Check how much money I have made while I was sleeping. Get impressed. Make more money throughout the whole day like a robot while my maid takes care of the human side (cooking food, cleaning, etc.). Write down what I need to do for tomorrow. Go to sleep at 12AM. 2 years like this now.

    For me it's not true.
    For many IMers (at least with a little exaggerated) in my coutry/in their early stage, (I guess) it's close to the truth.

    Honestly, I find this amazing. I am only 19, and organizing my days as precisely as you would be awesome. I should try. But at the same time I am kinda scared of the routine.

    You weren't replying to me, but as someone that had a deathly fear of routine for the first decades of their life; don't be.

    While entropy is the direction of our universe, novelty only seems to arise from structure. If you have a firm framework to your normal routines, you'll find joy in the ability to fuck around in the interim periods without that nagging "What am I doing with my life?" voice in your head. I get more rejuvenation from a 20 minute meditation after lunch now than I did with a 2 hour nap in college, because I know exactly what I'm doing when my eyes open.

    Send a PM to @Ste Fishkin letting him know you want to be a guru and he will teach you his ways. He is very receptive to new members and is just a big goddamn snuggle-bug. Let him know you are a big follower of Matthew Woodward and he will know you are serious.
