I have never been a person who sets resolutions. The one thing I knew that I had to do this year was learn to create some form of routine.

Find an exercise routine, reading time and business building time on top of my time at work.

Hi Varun,

how do you make sure that time for yourself doesn't fall off the agenda during busy work weeks? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

I ditched out resolution setting based on the start of the year a while ago. My regime is to block out time specifically to exercise, read and study. I am more attentive in the morning and just wake up much earlier than everyone in the house to carry out my routine.
