Do What Works For You 🤟🏽

Do What Works For You 🤟🏽
By Jamie Lim Yin Yin • Issue #38 • View online
Hi friends!
As you all know I’m a huge learning and productivity geek - so I’m always trying to optimise my days to make sure I get the most out of them.
Although it can be a struggle at times, I absolutely LOVE early mornings, so I don’t want to waste the precious time I have. I’ve always tried to research, emulate and create the ‘best morning routine and I came across this book: “My Morning Routine: How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired” by Benjamin Spall. I read through it and it was interesting to learn what the most successful folks in this world do in their mornings! There were interesting trends that I picked up from each of them: for example, most of them mentioned getting their exercise done in the morning (whether it’s yoga, running or weight training) because they get something that’s important checked off at the start of the day.
More than that - I realized that everyone’s routine was different and that’s because everyone is different! What works for someone, may not work for you.
I had been trying so hard to fit myself into a particular routine that I thought would be great for me - but when I tried to implement the routine, it completely flopped. So I pivoted - I tried, and I tweaked - I finally found an ideal morning routine that works for me! Every morning doesn’t look the same for me, but it works, and honestly, the routine continues to change till this day.
While it’s good to get an idea of what others are doing to learn and get exposed to more ideas - remember that only you know what works best for you. Don’t limit yourself to what others have done, and don’t be afraid to explore other ways and options.
Do what works best for you :)
I’m curious to know - do you all have a morning / evening routine? Do share if you have one, I’d love to know what it’s like!
Till next week!
Jamie

My Favourite Things This Week 💛
App - Clubhouse
I first heard of Clubhouse on LinkedIn, and I was skeptical because it was advertised as a new social media platform.
It’s growth has exploded within weeks, and I can see why folks are interested in this! Last night, I joined a room full of Singapore Creators like @ourgrandfatherstory, @thesmartlocal, @thewokesalaryman - it was really interesting to hear their insights and learnings. I absolutely love what they are doing for the Singapore community, so it was really nice to hear from them.
What I love about this platform is that we’re able to participate and talk if we want to (well you have to raise your hand and the moderator will put you on stage)! I was pretty shy at first, but I wanted to force myself out of my comfort zone by asking questions - so I did, and I’m glad that I did.
Planning to host a couple of sessions with my YouTuber and Googler community, so it’ll be exciting! Do come join the conversation if you’re keen :)
If you enjoy podcasts, you’ll enjoy this platform. It was literally podcasts on steroids + interaction. Let me know if you’re keen to get an invite - I have a few more left :)

Kindle Highlight Of The Week 📖
I find that walking or swimming helps me the most :) I love taking walks especially with my partner and dogs! Swimming on the other hand it really therapeutic and is my 'meditation' time!
