Getting a lot done, but nothing like a normal workflow. Lots of running around, lots of collaboration, minimal structure to my days, and working more from a rough series of objectives.
I have some observations and thoughts from Mongolia, though been active from early morning to late night lately. Will look to provide some interesting updates.
Great to see people some so many people I know mentioned/responding to this blogpost.
Greetings to Iran, ulaanbataar and Beijing or wherever you are in the world now :)
I like how you brake your day down into activities. I might start doing the same. Just that at the moment it mostly looks like this:
Getting up, Writing, Riding my bike to India, Lunch brake, Riding my bike to India, Dinner, find a place to camp. In between a long list of audiobooks and hours of meditation (if i am not threatened to get killed by crazy irani drivers =)).
I ll be in Teheran next week. Maybe we can chat for a bit. I wanted to follow up on your idea of the AppSumo model with philantrophy mixed in and see whether I can provide some value.
All the best from Zanjan, Iran
Last day of the week --

Awake: 1:30AM (9 hours sleep)
I love to sleep. I've slept easily 10 hours on average my life so far. Even though I love sleep I realize one thing:
Needless sleep has easily been the most unproductive thing I’ve done in my life.
Oversleeping is horrible. For one I find sleeping more than 9 hours a day usually begets more sleep, making you actually feel drowsier the majority of the day even though you technically slept more than enough. Furthermore sleeping extra just takes up time. sleeping 10 hours a day as opposed to 6 or 7 means I’m not awake for a whopping 90-110 hours a month. This adds up really quickly. Those extra 3 hours could be used to learn a language, programming, watch a good movie or documentary, exercise etc. Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to spend learning vocabulary or studying? Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to come up with a strategy for your business?
