What I’m doing every single day!
What’s an Every Day Page?
It’s basically a Now page on steroids. If you don’t know what is a Now page let me give you a brief introduction (too many terms, right?): A Now page is a place on someone’s website where they list their long-term goals and tasks. It’s like a public declaration of your priorities. A small place online to remind yourself what you need to do and towards where you need to focus your efforts. It’s the perfect place when you’re feeling unfocused, confused, lost. You can check the detailed explanation of a Now Page on the Derek Sivers’s website.
The Every Day Page it’s a bit different. A new spin, actually, of the Now page.
The idea of The Every Day Page is similar to what we mentioned above but it will have a stronger impact on your life. To create your Every Day Page you need to do the following: list the tasks that you should do every-single-day of your life in order to achieve something. Basically, the set of tasks that will help you improve in a specific area. The Every Day Page is like your own online accountability partner. This page will remind you every-single-day what you need to do. You can also check my detailed article about this: The Every Day Rule.
You’re not simply stating on what you’re working now, you’re telling the whole world what are your daily actions in order to achieve that goal, every single day of the week.
The rules are super simple. Actually, there is only one rule:
- List the things you must complete before you go to bed.
Here, if you didn’t undersand, we’re speaking about things that will have a positive impact on your life.
The idea behind the main idea, sort to say, is to set a goal and deconstruct it. The final outcome will be a set of daily tasks that have to be done before closing your eyes.
- So, if you want to write a book, you will put writing as a task in your everyday to-do list;
- If you want to get fit, you will respectfully put exercising as a thing to do in your day.
You may be wondering: Ok, but shouldn’t I have a day for a sweet rest? Well, even though the answer may vary depending on the circumstances, my firm answer is No. Do you want to write a book or you want to rest?
I look at things this way: Since I’m eating and sleeping every single day, I can spare at least 10 minutes of my day exercising.
In addition, I’ve created a simple system for tracking your tasks during a single day. It’s called The Grid. It’s a simple process for tracking your time during the day. You can download your own copy by going to this page.

Without further ado, world, this is the list of things I do every day:
My Every Day tasks:
- Wake up between 06:30 and 06:40. Sundays I can rest longer. I can sleep till 07:00;
- Exercise every day;
- Write at least 1000 words;
- Eat less meat and more greens;
- Answer 3 Questions on Quora;
- Read at least one page of a book.
