Stretched Thin

Lately the number of concurrent projects on my plate have started building up to the point where I need more time in the day to get things done. there’s the pending launch of the Automatic Blog Machine, a couple of contract jobs, my regular 9-5 job, several active blogs, and now potentially a weekly video blog in the works and the prospect of writing a book.

It’s got me thinking of ways to get more done in the day and what I have arrived at is a number of things to focus on for that to happen.

  1. Increased single focused effort to improve productivity – by removing distractions.
  2. Trying to decrease my hours of sleep per day.  I currently get more than 8 hours/night
  3. Get more exercise

Richard Branson has said that the most important factor to success in business is physical exercise.  It keeps your mind and body sharp and alert.   I think there may be some truth to that so I’m going to be focused on getting at least some time every day for a workout.

My sleep patterns have been fairly undisiplined.  I intend to test reducing my core sleep to 7.5 hours/night and test a number of dietary ways to increase the quality of sleep.

It’s going to be a busy and interesting couple of weeks.  2011 is shaping up to be a stellar year.
