"I'm going to use the best of myself to accomplish the most meaningful task of my day.” John Lee Dumas
In this episode, you’ll learn:
While he was successful with his podcast career, he realized he needed to put his own health ahead of everything.
His morning ritual starts by waking up without an alarm clock and just letting the sun do its job. He then exercises first thing in the morning. After exercise, he showers, get ready for the day, but spends 5 minutes for meditation first. He would then start journaling and work.
He says journaling is the most important task for his business. He will get into other people’s agendas only after he takes care of himself first and his business.
Like many successful people, John also prioritizes sleep. He always goes to bed at 9:15 PM to get at least 8 hours of sleep. Any less is not satisfactory.
He’s also a huge fan of bone broth and says it’s one of his preferred ways to break his fast.
Life in general is a marathon, not a sprint.
Money is great, but it would be useless if you’re unhappy and unhealthy.
