    I eat farm-to-table organic food.  I lift weights, then I run five miles.  I drink pure spring water and protein-powder milkshakes.  I do deep-breathing exercises.

   Then the alarm clock goes off and wakes me from that dream.  I get out of bed, and go to work!

My evil machine is parked in front of the tv and it attempts to kill me while I catch up on whatever I've recorded from when I didn't have time to watch.  I miss being out with my dogs every morning but I'm not ready for another as yet;  their loss is still too painful.

I make a point of reading non-business books each day as well and since Christmas I've reread all of Ernest Hemingway's treasures and am now on my bazillionth time reading East of Eden.  That keeps my brain in a peaceful state.

Spending time with family and friends. You need to take time for yourself, so find ways of making your days shorter. If you work 12-14 hour days, you don't have time to spend the money.

Hi Paul, simply put yes. I have always maintained some sort of daily exercise program-mostly swimming and or the gym. I go a minimum of 5 X per week. I also have a heated pool out back so I swim everyday. Plus I never really sit still for long. You must make and take the time to keep the engine fine tuned so it runs optimally!

Long hours and a lot of stress can take it's tool. I'm learning to deal with that and to get out and do more for myself. I'm trying to do more to combine business with pleasure.

My dog is really helping me with that. We just had another session at the local track and I met someone I don't recall. He knows me as a REALTOR®. That's great. His little dog loved my big dog, and they played well together. He also saw me cleaning up after other dogs that had been there. I like to keep the area clean. He told me how much he respected me for doing that. I plan to get out more with Lucky and to enjoy the weather and have a great time and network all at the same time. The exercise is good for me, too, and should help keep me healthy.

And each day I decompress by watching that day's edition of General Hospital, which I record, and which I've been watching since 1963.
