My life is thoroughly designed for creativity and productivity. That’s also reflected in my daily routine, which I present to you here.
It’s 4 am, my alarm rings the first time. I get up, go to the alarm clock and turn it off. At 04:15, the alarm clock rings a second time, getting up time. What is important here is that my alarm clock is always at a certain distance from the bed, otherwise you don’t have to get up and so the risk of you sleeping increases.
I go through the daily routine in the bath, with the anticipation of my NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Dallmayr Prodomo coffee and the chocolate banana cereal.
So after having breakfast and getting the news from the business and technology world, it’s all about day-to-day planning. I write myself a ToDo list in my Bullet Journal, which I would like to have worked out by the end of the day.
Next I answer emails that fell by the wayside the night before and then we go to Nuremberg, where I work until 4 p.m. or 1 p.m. on Fridays in my main Job as a media designer. On the way to Nuremberg I sit on the train, where I plan and create my postings on social media or already work on customer orders from my own agency.
During the breaks we go shopping to the local Supermarket, but sometimes I stay in the office, unpack my laptop and work on new songs or my projects.
On the way home from Nuremberg, I sit on the train again, where I plan and create my next posts on social media as in the morning or already work on customer orders from my own agency. Since my train journey takes more than 3 hours a day, the train is, so to speak, my rolling office.
After work, when I’m back home, it goes straight on with the work of my own projects and the orders of my clients until about 8 p.m. Dinner is also prepared during this time.
Around 8 p.m. we go to sports, mostly jogging or more recently swimming, until I am back home at about 21:30. If the sport fails, time is not wasted idly, but, for example, put into new music productions or the preparation for larger projects or customer orders.
At 21:30 o ‘clock I also move into the cosier part of the day. From now on, Netflix is on the schedule now and since 9 p.m. my devices have been put on “Do Not Disturb,” I also no longer receive notifications that set me back into business mode. Time off is important.
Since I also have to sleep at some point, at about 11:30 pm it’s time for the needed sleep. Until the next day the alarm clock rings again at 04:00.
At the weekends, the process looks a little different, but quite comparable. Here, however, instead of full-time work, the household is conquered, as well as time spent with family and friends.
