Hey everybody. My name is Dan Henry and I'm the author of the wall street journal, a bestselling book, digital millionaire secrets. And today I'm going to go through my daily routine. A lot of people ask me, you know, Dan, what do you do on a daily basis? How do you get so much done? How do you know, find time to exercise and run your company and just do all the personal stuff that you have going on. What is your day look like? And so I'm going to break down hour by hour. What my day looks like in this video, by the way, if you have a daily routine, just let me know in the comments. Just type yes or no. I like to know if you guys just plan your day out and know exactly what you're doing every day, or if you just kind of wing it.
So that said let's get started. So my daily routine starts at 7:00 AM and this is when I wake up. So I'll just put, wake. I wake up at 7:00 AM. I find that this is a good time to wake up because I have about two hours before I get bothered at all by anyone. And that's one of the great things of waking up early. And, you know, I know some people that wake up at 4:00 AM or even 3:00 AM because they can get an entire day's work done because there's nobody there to bother them. And that's one very important thing about productivity is that when people are bothering you, every time you get interrupted, you take about 20 to 30 minutes to refocus. And then if 20 minutes later you get bothered again. Well, you can see how throughout the day you just can't get anything done.
So getting up early is one great way to get things done without getting bothered. So I wake up at seven. Now I have a, I wake and I have some coffee. Let's put that in there, coffee, and I just chill out for a minute. I have at least one or two cups of coffee. Generally. I have one. And then by seven 30, seven 30, I take my morning walk. Okay. Now what is the morning walk and why do I take it? Well, I generally will put a to-go cup of coffee that looks like this. And let me just take a sip anyway. So I take it a to-go cup of coffee for my walk, and I will walk about six to 8,000 steps. Now I track that by using an aura ring, which has little sensors on it, and I can look on my phone to see how many steps I've taken and I will walk for about 45 minutes to an hour.
And I will listen to an audiobook while I'm walking. So I'm gaining knowledge. I'm learning things, generally a personal development book, a business book, a sales book, something to allow me to get better at what I do each and every day. So I get about six to 8,000 steps in my goal for the day is 10,000. I know if I get at least six in, I'm probably going to hit 10,000 steps by the end of the day, which allows me to lose weight, feel good, feel productive for the rest of the day, as well as gain knowledge by listening to an audiobook. So by that time, it's about eight 30 and then I've got to you know, write about you know, eight, eight 30 to nine-ish. I will take a shower, get ready, so I'll just put, get ready.
And this is where I just, you know, take a shower, get ready and get ready for the day. And I try to be working by 9:00 AM and this is where I'm working. Okay. Now what I'm doing depends on the day. For instance, today is Monday and I'm filming about 20 YouTube videos today so that I don't have to film any for the next couple of months so I can concentrate on some other projects. So that's what I'm doing today. Another day I might be doing coaching calls another day. I might just be doing random things, random projects that I got to work on. But pretty much I try to start between nine. Sometimes if I'm running late or I get up late, it'll be 10 o'clock. So, this daily routine does change because if I don't get good sleep, I know that if I get up early without bad sleep, I'm not going to be productive throughout the day.
So I'll sleep in a little bit, get better quality sleep and just shift my whole day forward because I know that I'll get the quality of the work I get done will be better if I get a little bit extra sleep. So this 9:00 AM might actually be you know, 10:00 AM. Okay. So I start working and then I work from 9:00 AM to about 6:00 PM. So at about 6:00 PM, I stop work. All right, so this is my window. This is my window right here to work. And then at about 6:30 PM, I lift weights or workout.
I lift weights. Now, today was different today. I woke up at seven and I was working out by somewhere in this area and I was lifting weights. And the reason I did this is because I normally fast every day. So I normally fast until about 2:00 PM. And then I drink a shake. And then at about maybe four or 5:00 PM, I have a small meal and that about maybe seven to 9:00 PM, anywhere in there, depending I have a big meal. And then I have a late-night snack, and this allows me to maintain a caloric deficit, lose weight, and eat things that I want. Like sometimes I might have a whole pizza because they didn't eat all day till 2:00 PM. And that's another reason why in the morning I will do a morning walk. I won't lift weights because it does get a little difficult to lift weights when you are fasting. And so that's why, you know, I've got some food in me here and at six 30, I've got some food, some carbs and I can lift weights. And then I'm done by 8:00 PM is when I chill out.
Now today, the reason I lifted weights was because I decided I was going to break my fast early. So I lifted weights. I got a shake in me because I'm going to be recording 20 videos today. I needed some energy. I needed some, some, some fuel. So I adjusted my morning routine today, but this is what the morning routine usually looks like. Now, when I'm done lifting weights and I chill out at this point, this is where I want to turn my brain off. If you're like, all right, eight o'clock I'm done. And then you start working and doing things, your brain doesn't get any rest. And then the next day it becomes harder to focus and to do things in your normal work time. So generally when I chill out, I watch movies. Maybe I go in the pool, maybe I play guitar, but I do.
I like watching movies a lot because I do have a really very nice home theater system. And I like the big sound and all that jazz. So I'll watch movies. Plus I get a lot of ideas for ads, analogies, storytelling when I walk films. And I watch videos. We'll put YouTube on the big screen and watch stuff about so I guess I'm still learning. But that chill out time is absolutely important so that you can let your mind rest. All right. So that's what I do. And then at about anywhere from 11 to 12, I go to bed and, and that's pretty much it. Now this will adjust for instance, if I know that I'm working out. So I lift weights Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Now when I'm lifting weights, I'm walking a lot, cause I'm walking back and forth and putting plates on.
So I get a lot more steps in that day than I do on a day where I'm not lifting weights. So on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, I will have a longer walk. And on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I'll have a shorter walk because I know I'm going to get those steps in later when I lift weights, today's a bit, I lifted weights first and got that out of the way. Feel good about recording 20 videos today for YouTube because I'm recording 20 videos. Look at this, I'm walking, all right, I'm walking, I'm walking, that's a lot of steps and those all count and they all get tracked. So I know that between my lift, my weightlifting session today, and this, I will probably get all 10,000 steps in. If I don't, I'll simply take a short walk when I get home, when I leave the office here at about six.
So one thing I want to be very clear about what this daily routine, and if you haven't noticed yet, this is the key, this isn't necessarily a task-based routine or really a schedule. It is a goal-based routine. So my goal is to wake up early. My goal is to live, listen to an audiobook, and get my 10,000 steps in steps in my goal is to get about this many hours of working. My goal on some days is to lift weights. My goal is to have time to rest my brain. And also my goal is to sleep. So this routine might change, but the goals do not change. That's super, super, super important. And the same thing when we break down into this is, you know, I'm looking to work, but it depends on what's going on in my company. Some days I might be doing videos or podcast episodes, or I might just be focused on other tasks, or it might be focused on potential real estate investments or potential hedge fund or debt fund investments.
Or I might be looking at stocks to buy. It may not necessarily be my business because my, my business, with the exception of me filming new videos for potential ad or YouTube creatives or YouTube videos, basically filming content, I don't really do anything at my company. I have pretty much everything delegated. And when I do something it's planning a new thing or, or just really project management, not any actual work, like I don't build funnels. I don't do ads, ads. Sometimes I'll do ads just for fun just to experiment, but I don't really do anything. I just try to produce things. So that's it, that's my daily routine. And here's the thing that I would suggest for you when you make your daily routine, don't try to make it based on a schedule. Try to make it based on a goal, try to say, can I get exercise in, can I get time to focus in? Can I get time to learn in? Can I get time to rest in? Can I get time to work in? And you'll notice
That this schedule has time for everything I don't get bothered during my morning walk is it's early. I get to learn things and get to learn new things and learning new things is extremely important. If you want to build a seven, let alone eight or nine or 10 figure really even six figures, you've got to learn things every day, you know, and you gotta have time for all this stuff. So this right here is a goal-based routine. You can make your own it. Doesn't have to, it looks like this. As long as you get all of your goals in for the day. And that's right there, is it.
