Start your week on Sundays

Since I started my job as a full-time Venture Capitalists in 2015, I have created the habit of starting my weeks on Sunday. I combine it with wrapping the week earlier on a Friday. Double reward for me.

I saw this post from my friend Danielle, and it reminded me, hey, time to make some coffee and plan the week.

I work daily, including Saturdays and Sundays. Not recommending hustling porn; It is a simple preference. For instance, this weekend, I had six calls between Saturday and Sunday, which felt great. It isn’t painful to me as I live an integrated life with work, God, and my Ikigai.

The compounding power of putting in an extra 6-10 hours a week for the last decade helped me tremendously on the quest towards Munger/Naval freedom.

I appreciate the silence of Sunday nights. Everything is quiet, and you get to crush your messages, to-dos, events, plans, and, most importantly, plan the week with peace.

When you put the correct intention combined with action, you feel better. There is nothing like a good aromatherapy machine, a clean desk, warm coffee, noise-canceling headphones, some candles, and the feeling of crushing the week a bit ahead of others.
