Day 138

Today is busy, so I’ll keep this as brief as possible because I just need to get back to work!

However, I promised to publish a daily case study so that’s what I’ll do.

Honestly, the case study post should I highlight that I didn’t really do much yesterday. That’s now screwing me over today.

Whoops.

Yesterday there were 1,611 days until I turn 30 and need to make $10K a day passively. Here’s how I spent it in pursuit of that goal

The current phase of the plan

I’m in Phase #1:  The Job & Side Hustle Phase.  You can read more about the phases and my plan to get to $10K/a day at 30 here.

Wake up & sleep:

I woke up at 8:46 am after going to bed at 11:57, for a total amount of sleep of 7 hours and 50 minutes. Recovery was 45%

This continues an interesting trend: the later I go to bed, the worse recovery is.

That’s unacceptable because I need recovery high so I can keep working as effectively as possible.

Off to bed at 8pm tonight.

Exercise

No exercise for me today. Also unacceptable. I think this makes me more tired and sleep better.

Stress levels

I was at a 4/5, with 1 being the highest. It was a weekend (Sunday), so not 100% stressed as a result.,

Diet

Diet was coffee, cereal, and chicken and rice for dinner.

3/5 with 1 being the best. Also contributing to not enough sleep.

Dean Woods

Dean Woods

Dean’s goal is to create $10,000/day in passive income through entrepreneurship. Too many people write “success porn” that skates over the struggles many face in entrepreneurship. His goal is to create something real that highlights the lack of sleep, disappointment from family, and setbacks you really face in entrepreneurship. The hope is that $10K a day swill inspire someone else out there to make their entrepreneurship dreams happen. Dean Woods is side hustling and working a full time job to kickstart his entrepreneurial path. Prior to this life, Dean was a management consultant. Dean graduated with honors from The Wharton School.
