Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...


We all see entrepreneurs and people who are successful and they talk about their routines and what works for them. Some wake up as early as 4 a.m. to start their days and they sleep 6 hours a night. We're always told to wake up early and get ahead of the people who are sleep. Well....here's what I will tell you...find a ROUTINE that works for you. Don't feel obligated to sleep less to wake up early and do work when you're not at your best.

I'm not a morning person, never have been, never will be. But I am surely a night person and I do my best work at night. It's all in what you're comfortable with and how productive you're going to be. I can never wake up at 5 a.m. and be productive in any way, shape or form which is why I've never done it from the moment I started this journey.

Now have I gone to bed at 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. sometimes because I was up all night working on things? Yes I have and there's nothing wrong in doing it that way. I know for me I work a full-time job currently Monday-Thursday and when Thursday night at 8:45 p.m. comes, I know I have work to do from that time until 7:30 a.m. Monday morning. In between that time, I have errands to do, food shopping, and adult responsibilities but I'm always making sure I have allotted time to get things done.

If you're a morning person, go for it, wake up early and get things done. If you're a night owl, stay up late, do your work and get your rest. What matters is how you start your day and how you finish your day. Mental focus and sticking to what has worked for you will allow you to grow and be great.

Having a good diet, eating right, exercise, having good people around you and doing things that make you happy is what will keep you in good spirits. Routines are necessarily a bad thing, they help you stay organized, on point, it keeps your mind clear and it makes for a great story in your journey. I have a ROUTINE that works for me and I will continue doing it because it's what has allowed me to create so much content.

Do what makes you happy always! Be good and go accomplish your goals!

Life can get really hectic at times and sometimes you need QUIET time for yourself. Every once in a while, you need to recharge your battery so you're fresh mentally and emotionally. No one is ever at their best when life is stressful and they're dealing with so much at one time. Sometimes we need to shutout the world for just a little while to get ourselves back to 100%.

For me, I need quiet time and I do in various ways. There are nights I get home from work and when I eat dinner, I don't have my phone near me, no iPad, and no television. It's just me and eating my meal, that's it. I avoid thinking about my day or what I have to do in regards to my projects. Sometimes when I'm off from work, I will lay in bed in silence in my house when no one is around. There are days when I'm off where I'll listen to music to relax my mind (ambient or electronic music helps me a lot).

It's not easy to deal with the stresses of life that will come your way. It's all in how you manage it and understand that you need a break from the world. Going out with friends is not going to always help, being around friends is not always the move either, it's literally just shutting yourself down and spending time alone.

So whenever you feel overwhelmed with life and all that's going on, take sometime for yourself and get your mind right. Rest your body, cater to your soul and listen to what your mind and body are telling you.

Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
