How do you split out your time daily?

Do you have a repeatable daily schedule or do you approach every day as something new? Do you spend your morning doing important tasks or do you prefer to do them in the afternoon? How much sleep are you getting? Do you feel you should be getting more or less?

I like to have a routine day to day, but it's hard getting into a routine. I don't sleep much. ~5hours/day. I should sleep more but I like to get up early, get some exercise in, sort out the important emails and prioritise calendar tasks for the day. Ideally, I'll do the tasks that require significant thought early on in the day and do less cerebral work later on as I lose energy, but that doesn't always happen.

Thanks for the answer Yee. It is always interesting to hear how other entrepreneurs and business owners split up their days.

​Hi Jef, I wish I could get by on the 5 hours sleep Yee has, alas I am an 8 hour person. That said, to get my day started I schedule accountability, conference, and industry training webinars/calls as early as 6.30am. I find the interaction helps me increase my energy levels. Im one to work flat out all day and then crash early evening, get a second wind, and then put some more in later in the evening. For anyone reading, its not sustainable over the long term - I just have four businesses on the go at the moment and it is what is needed in the short term. My perfect day would include some morning exercise too. How about you Jef, whats your perfect day?
