Good processes are essential for any kind of repeated success. Below are some personal processes I try follow for myself when doing certain things.

I think of my rules as boundaries within I try to operate my life. And processes are series of steps I should take when doing certain things. Some are vaguer than others. If I do them enough times, they become part of my habits.


  1. Wake up at ~ 9:00.
  2. If with dogs, go take dogs outside (listen to podcasts/books a bit)
  3. Shower. Wash body + skin care on face. Brush teeth. Wear new clothes.
  4. If with dogs, give food to dogs + 2 pills for Rachel (put in bowl).
  5. Make tea (big kettle)
  6. 4 eggs + salad (tomatoes + avocado + feta + ..). Optional smoothie.
  7. Take 2 omega 3 pills + 1 magnesium
  8. Twitter 2 feeds actively, snapshot github/lobsters/hn/reddit. (should be automated asap, have my own algorithm for surfacing useful to me things, removing noise)
  9. Work through todos!


  1. If with dogs, take dogs on longer walk (podcast/book listen) at least once for ~ 1h.
  2. Do some exercise outside (sit ups + push ups).
  3. Put clothes to clean so there are always clean clothes available.
  4. Keep good back (no slouch) and always work outside in terrace when you can.
  5. Take notes on everything I learn and be productive and aggressive on completing todos! Share progress made / thoughts on Twitter.
  6. Drink a lot of tea throughout the day. Always keep hydrated more than necessary.
