I’ve previously written about how I schedule my day, but Colin Devroe’s blog post tag is a welcome excuse to update this info.

  • 4:30am–5am: Wake up.
  • 5am–6am: Mission work.
  • 6am–7am: Get ready/get kids ready for the day.
  • 7am–8am: Drive kids to school and get back home.
  • 8am–12pm: Work. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, I reserve this slot for flow time. On Tuesdays and Fridays, this time is open for SuperFriends and clients to schedule meetings with me.
  • 12pm–1pm: Lunch.
  • 1pm–1:30pm: Work wind-down.
  • 1:30pm–2:30pm: Pick up kids from school.
  • 2:30pm–5:30pm: Help kids with homework and do some writing/reading/sketching/thinking.

  • 7:15pm–7:30pm: Read together and put kids to bed.
