I’m glad to finally see a post like this! I’ve been seeing a lot of these articles, too, about daily habits, etc. I’m not super famous or rich, but I got a tenure track job with only one key to my day: wake up and then work your ass off. I’m still doing it to some extent, though I’m close to earning tenure, and I’ve started to mellow some while I plan out phase 2 of my career. It’s kind of nice.
