My Personal Schedule

In nearly every forum with safety professionals, there is a question about my personal schedule. Some have heard about weird wake-up hours, etc. So here it is.

I built this regimen based on the wisdom of mentors and leaders. I maintain it because it works. Suggested reading on how habits/systems can change your life (and how the little things add up):

The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy

The Power of Full Engagement by Tony Schwartz

The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

0300 Wake up/coffee

0315-0450 Read

0500-0530 Workout

0530-0545 Write

0545-0630 Plan day

0630-0715 Breakfast (same every day)/get dressed

0715-1200 Commute (bike) and work

1200-1300 Home for lunch

1300-1700 Work

1710-1930 Dinner, Family time, walk

1930-2030 Read with family

2030 Bedtime

Aside from work, the times remain the same, every day. While travel rearranges timing (somewhat), the consistency allows me to reengage quickly/batch priorities.

What about you? What habits/schedules work for you?
