What did you schedule?

Eat. Sleep. Lift. 

Business people don’t talk about this too much. It probably doesn’t fit well in most books about entrepreneurialism. As business owners, there is a tendency to wear a lack of sleep as a badge of honour. We will let you know it is a bad idea. You probably already know this. But worth repeating.

You can google up all the bad effects of the lack of sleep. We won’t stimulate your cortisol further here. You need to take care of your health. And it starts with sleep. Otherwise, you won’t have a chance to enjoy the wealth you've accumulated in the long term. 

To get to that long term, you need to eat healthily, sleep adequately, and move daily. Moving means walking, running, biking, swimming, lifting, and the likes. Get your body moving. A healthy body breeds a healthy mind. Get your seven to eight hours of sleep, cut that processed food, reduce the alcohol, and make sure you get regular workouts. 

A healthy body helps your creativity. Creativity is one of the biggest advantages you have as a business owner. You need it to solve your business challenges. You can better manage your mood and temper too when diet, sleep, rest, and exercise are aligned and in balance. At the very least, get your diet and rest under control.

We aren’t angels ourselves when it comes to all these three. But we do our best daily.

Is it a heavy responsibility?
