Nate Green thenategreenexperience.com WARNING: This eBook is for your personal use. But as long as you tell people I'm cool, you can give it away to anyone you think it'll help. 1. Plan your perfect day I do this every couple of months and it really helps me remember what I want my life to look like. Take a sheet of paper (or pull up a Word document) and write your perfect day. Start from when you wake up and end when you go to sleep. Be incredibly detailed. Where did you wake up? (What city, state, and country? Is it your bed? Are you traveling?) What did you do next? (Rush out the door? Take it slow and make breakfast? What'd you eat? What'd you think about?) What's your plan for the day? (Read a book? Work on projects? Go on a road trip? Board a plane? Relax with your girlfriend?) What specific things are you doing throughout your day? Yeah, I know this is all a little corny, but I think you'll be amazed at how fun it is. And the coolest thing? Reading your "perfect day" a few months later and realizing your damn near living it. 2. Side note: I'm not perfect. But nobody really is. I fuck up, procrastinate, stay in my comfort zone, and complain. But I'm also working on it. And that's the difference. 3. Organize like a badass

Nate Green thenategreenexperience.com Write it down; live it out. "What are you doing later today?" he asked. It was Sunday. He had spent countless Sunday afternoons with me. He should know what I do on Sunday. "Putting my life together." I replied. "I figured. Just seeing if you were going to break the habit." "Nope." The Sunday Ritual It's taken me a few years and a half-dozen methods, but I've finally figured out how to organize my life in a way that enables me to get all my work done in a few short hours, keep a strong handle on my finances and investments, connect with readers, and spend a good chunk of time hanging out with family, going out to eat with friends, catching matinee movies, training, and reading. Instead of succumbing to time-famine and feeling overworked or frustrated, I've learned to plan nearly every part of my day to become more effective and less stressed while allowing myself tons of "guilt-free" time to do whatever the hell I want. Here's how I did it. Whoa. Hold on. You mean you plan everything? Pretty much, yeah. I mean, I don't get down to ridiculous details and plan things like "get coffee", but I do plan schedules for brainstorming and writing articles, phone-calls, e-mail, writing my blog, training, and free time. Why the hell do you do that?
