Turning 50, and then having a friend die, has really sharpened my awareness of time slipping by.
This year I am trying out a daily minimum standard. This is how it now stands:
Read (especially classics of literature and philosophy)
Write or work on the business
Physical Training 15 minutes
Quality time with my dog, especially training his retrieving skills
The bar is currently pretty low for some of these as I work to carve out time every day from a busy schedule of obligations. Most of these standards are more vague than I would like.
On top of that I am working on my standards for jiujitsu and martial arts training, which are far from daily at this point.
I don’t list it above, but time with the kids is always my first priority.
