  • I found this video very helpful, in the sense that I can use a thirty minute per day exercise regimen to combat any illnesses that I have now. It is also a good way to prevent early death. I have a dog, whom I walk every day in the cooler months of South Texas, but when it is hot, like it is now, I slack. But there are many solutions, some of which are mentioned in this wonderful video. I personally park in a farther parking spot most times so I can get some extra walking in their. Thank you for posting.

  • GREAT points! LISTS are a MUST!
    One thing I do differently, I DO hit the snooze button (ONCE!) I set my alarm a little earlier than I need to get up to account for this. I take the time NOT to go back to sleep but instead stretch/ breath/ wake up. This really helps me to NOT be a Zombie when I do get up.
    Everything else sounds SOLID!: )

  • Love this info, and it is so true! I’ve always loved walking anyways…but now I’ve been walking even more after reading/viewing this video…thank you so much! Gonna share this one on my Facebook!!!

  • This is fantastic and greatly appreciated!  I shared it on my facebook page and hope more MDs get on the social media train and help educate our country in preventative health!  Thank you so much!

  • This is wonderful, thank you! Are there any versions of your work in Spanish?? in particular related to the benefits of exercise? Would really love to share with a Spanish-speaking group. Thank you.

  • I love this video. I am studying Exercise and Disease Prevention and my Prof recommended watching this video in the first lecture. Such a good video.

  • These 5 tips remind me of things my husband would say. And the expansion of knowledge is something I’ve experienced. My college major was English with plans to teach, then my parents needed me so I took a break from school to work for them. After meeting and marrying my husband, computers entered our lives which allowed me to begin writing newsletters. Enter the World Wide Web. I had returned to school to update my skills, which included adding website design to my list. Today I am a professional website designer with the focus to help small businesses and organizations be successful. I would not have these additional skills without my husband’s support. Don’t EVER think that you’ve made a mistake with your college major or trade school decisions. Something will always be the right choice.

  • Great video!! I’ve been trying to fix my sleep schedule because quarantine has messed it all up): but I’m gonna try some of your tips:)) thanks Charlie <3

  • Thank you for watching this Video. Join this channel to get access to perks: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjnJwlSN4_FuoE-6RWX_Eaw/join

  • I think just getting older has made me need less sleep. So I guess the tip is get older. And also go to sleep so that you get enough sleep, this is key. You will not be productive by being sleep deprived.

  • Oh hai!Did you ever try Minkunus Acne Recovery Plan (search on google)? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my friend got great clear skin from it. 

  • I genuinely want to thank you for sharing this amazing video. I have taken notes and I’ll make sure that I’m starting it by today.

  • 1) Shower, wear nice clothes
    2) Deliberately choose to be a good example of yourself.
    3) Powerful deadlines
    4) develop wide knowledge base
    5) Always assume you can improve

  • This video is great! Now we should get a video on Bill Gates the amount of likes that this comment gets is how many people want a bill gates productivity video

  • How do you define early isn’t early relative to when you went to bed? I work from 8:30 at night to 5 in the morning. I go to bed typically at 7 or 8 a.m. what’s early for me?

  • Dear Madam,I’m a Sri Lankan girl who so happy about your wonderful job. Well done! Your lessons are very important for us.Thanks a lot!

  • A few questions,
    1. If you’re waking up so early at 5-6am, what time do you get to bed? Assuming you need 8 hours of sleep like most humans.
    2. Do you edit your videos in the day time during your deep work or in the dead of the night? Both times are great because phone’s is basically just silent and not going off on messages, calls and notifications to edit in peace.
    3. Which part of the day do you segment for video edit, working on your mortgage business, real estate? What if there’s one particularly busy day I set aside for video editing and a huge bunch of real estate/mortgage financing enquiries come in? Im doing something similar to you so thought I’d ask.

  • Oh my goodness. This really frightened me. I spend hours in front of my laptop. I always mean to go walking and I am never motivated to go. I am overweight. I have hypertension and high cholesterol both kept in check with medication.
    OK I am inspired now. I want to be around for many more years.

  • Thanks Mike..Trouble is, we dont live in jungles anymore…forget the couch and TV…many of our jobs promote sedentary lifestyle…we just have to take an hour out everyday and walk, swim, bike and run. I am 62 and I swim every summer in our community pool..Thanks Mike

  • “(…)and you might find that you actually find a job at the intersection of two fields that you didn’t even know existed in the first place.”

    just decided to subscribe to your channel since I’m in this intersection now ^

  • Am I the only one that was in awe of the awesome illustration the whole time? Puts a person with suckish drawing and handwriting ability to shame:(

  • Hope you do not mind, but I have taken a few SoundBites from this video, printed them on A4, and plan to post them in the waiting room of the family practice I work in.

  • For me to wake up I find listening to uplifting music does the trick makes me go about my day and kick some a.. and also that Cup of coffee might do the trick as well i know you think it’s not a good idea but it helps

  • Very Good knowledge, thanks You!

    I also don’t believe in any unnatural things!

    I reduced 12 lbs by just drinking 8 glasses of normal water/day and with the help of my tracking smartphone app “water meters” by lokesh.

  • The single best video on YouTube, this video must be shared amongst all family and friends regularly and shown in all schools.  I have not seen a video that puts it message across as well as this one, it does it in a low key non-aggressive manner but demands to be taken seriously with the thought that has gone into the presentation style and content.  Just amazing. 

  • This is awesome, not only living longer, but with better quality of life…I am living proof of this with the evidence based practice theory. Long story short, I am physically fit, and four years ago my heart stopped, after resuscitation and a trip to the cath lab and stent placement I live to tell my story.  If I had not been physically fit I would have died that day and not be revivable.

  • 85-100 hours? Plenty of folks get a lot done and have a good work-life balance. Not many people want to be billionaire CEOs. If anyone out there works that hard, of course you’ll make some money because that’s all your doing! Of course certain endeavors like startups involve a lot of hard work, but many of those doors aren’t open to those without a tech background or STEM education.

    Very positive video, just saying it’s my humble opinion that “working to live” is superior to “living to work.”

  • Hlo mam
    You teach everything in a best way.
    Your videos really help me to enhance my personality and live a very happy life.
    Thank you mam to uploading videos on YouTube to help us����

  • I think I can definitely limit by sitting and being sedentary to 23 and 1/2 hours a day! Thank you for all of this useful information, Dr. Evans!

  • I found it pretty ironic that we’re obviously all watching this from our computers/tablets/phones as well as probably all slouched on our comfortable couches

  • Just get others to do the work…. It’s not like he does nothing, but I’m always surprised that people think success is by 1 person…

  • Anyone have any advice as to how to handle the harassment from people on the street whenever I leave my home for a walk.  Im talking the following your for blocks, yelling at you for a half hour kind of harassment.

  • I want to earn money yes but at the same time I dont wanna be a work freak, I wanna live and experience life too because that’s what life is about

  • “Can you limit your sitting and sleeping to 23 1/2 hours per day?” Nope, physically impossible. Great video and does encourage getting more active, but the walking focus leaves out the millions of people in wheelchairs.

  • This is ridiculous. The guy is clearly not normal. He doesn’t sit in the middle so he can motivate himself but because he wants to always be in the know about the work, and always be available to his teams. It’s just what a tech CEO does. What works for him won’t work for a normal person with everyday productivity and motivation problems.

    A much better method to arrive at the solution is to simply take from the scientific studies that have determined what does work and try them for yourself.

  • He delegates. No one has enough time to run multiple companies by themselves. Having the right talent who likes your vision is paramount. 100 hour weeks wouldnt feel like work. His dream jobs get him to his final goal which is making human species multi planetary. if every person had a goal that big they’d work twice as hard to achieve it.

  • Something to note about Elon Musk is that he has ADHD, so he has a ”superpower” called Hyper-focus. It makes him unable to remove his brain from tasks he finds interesting. It’s a little known symptom that is important to note.

  • I like the way you said 23 and a half hours of sitting. Instead of walk 30 minutes a day, makes that 1 hour walk seem like a breeze

  • The Japanese are generally much healthier than other people in the world because they walk everywhere, stand during meetings, etc., even though they (as a country) rarely go to the gym.

  • That’s all fine but who is keeping track of the pollution in our water supply or toxins in all our foods and wrappers they come with.  Surely these toxins reduce lifespan and quality of life yet I rarely hear much about them or opportunities to fix them.  Corporations and doctors like to make this huge deal about personal vices and exercise but never talk about reducing their companies pollution or taking responsibility for the consequences. In fact the corporations and government have start fracking inside the United States with toxic chemicals that have already made people sick.

  • Let me know in the comments how you guys manage your mornings! And feel free to give me any tips I have to admit that some mornings are just so hard to feel motivated!

  • I also want to sleep earlier and get up earlier to get more stuff done. May I know, what time do you sleep? Do you do some reading before sleep?

  • Thank you very much mam for providing like these videos…… Your content, your explanation, your smile, your beauty everything is really really really really really superb. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Elon Musk uses his capital to tell his employees and others to get things done for him and then step 2 is him using his capital to lie to dumbshits like you that he did it all by himself.

  • Lol that’s so funny you said go to skillshare.com because I just came from there because I felt like majority of courses were too long and super fluffed. Much more interested in your style of video. I’ll check out the two you mentioned though.

  • Absolutely agree with this:) Said while sitting on my butt infront of youtube, facebook and the television!:D 
    In saying that was up at 6 this morning and going out at 6pm tonight so nearly 2hrs exercise ftw!

  • I was seriously putting stretch goals for myself for a long time.. And I failed all the time. But instead of expanding my limits, it created a sense of productivity shame on me.. Whatever I achieve my mind tells me it is not enough and my job is not THAT credible. Now doing anything other than studies is giving me intense pain around my head, shivering hands and increased heart rate.
    I have no doubt Must gets a lot of things done.. But over a lot of analysis, staying within our limits and pushing it off little by little helps to extract the full potential of an individual. And real success comes when every individual is trying to get the best out of his body and mind instead of following the standards society has set for us..

  • Great video. I prefer telling people to move 2.5 miles everyday. I walk it in about 45 minutes.

    The big thing is that adults have to train every day. We have to get away from the Mon Wed Fri thing. Even with weight lifting adults should lift aerobically… Every day

  • On the days when I do not want to exercise, I watch this again…. and then I get moving.  Thank you for helping many of us to gradually change our lifestyles.

  • My only problem is i cant wake up early,i really annoyed by my habit but
    Seriously this man is a legend
    I found his ways to wake up early very effective and i even recommed my friends to watch this
    He is a great man
    I follow him in insta,tiktok and of course youtube…������

  • I love videos like this. It really helps people with ADHD (me) pay attention. Really informative and creative. Thanks for the info Doc

  • Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Hi guys!! Let me just share a quick story with you guys.:) We own a cookie shop business in our college town. When we first started it, we were living in our car with very little direction, just a huge passion to be successful. We just graduated college as well. We started the late night cookie shop out of a local bagel shop in their off hours at night. We were living in our car in the parking lot of the shop at the time with my boyfriend, Bran. It was a crazy experience but it worked! We became a success! And now we have 2 storefront locations in New Jersey and Florida! We started it to fund a year long backpacking trip around the world and to be successful while living the life of our dreams.

  • Having a morning routine was such a game changer for me, particularly mediating everyday for at least 10 minutes that made such a big difference.. trying to manage a business can become very stressful, so getting that time to reflect early in the day can make all the difference ����

  • This was an awesome video!! I have such trouble waking up so I’ll definitely be trying them. Also, I tried to click the stock link for weeble to sign up and it’s not working. I think the link is broken? Follow me on TikTok when you get back on @shopthislook

  • I’ve been doing 75% of what Charlies recommended for about a month. I couldn’t agreed with him more. I definitely will try implementing the visualization part he mentioned in my morning routine. Thank you Charlies!

  • Topic at about min 7:00. Sounds like Elon ist a Scanner Personality (renaissance man, multi intelligence or how ever you call it). Sth. you can not train, you are just born like this. Your mind can never stop thinking and you are always curious to learn new, but get bored when things start to repeat (usual when you know about 80% of one topic). What is great, you can get connections between all those topics, that others don’t see.

  • Thank you Madam chetna,about the six cores of the morning. Which one comes before the other? do i have to read before i bathe, do i take lemon after a walk. Thank glad for your kind response

  • people always drone on about how he always fails his goals but i think much of this is embracing stretch goals and turning up the hype

  • Love this video. The focus of this video is really physical activity: “any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that requires energy expenditure” (WHO). Exercise: activity requiring physical effort, carried out especially to sustain or improve health and fitness. I think of exercise as a planned, repetitive activity, where physical activity is just raking leaves or walking the dog, but could include jogging. Perhaps it is just semantics.

  • WOW an Excellent Common Sense White Board Lecture.  The best part he’s not selling anything.  So its your life, you decide if its worth 10 minutes of your time to change your life expectancy.


  • Hyy Chang….I love your videos..and I have a question..what do you think about copywriting??? Will it be helpful a side hustle? These day???

  • Thomas, this was a great opportunity to throw an affiliate link for Musk’s Biography in the description.
    While I personally avoid supporting Amazon, I would have used a link to Chapters or a smaller name bookstore!
    Awesome video, sir. I will apply this knowledge today.

  • No. Actually it’s water. The Asian guy with the most patents of all time said the same thing. Which is why he starts his day swimming.

  • shower and wearing nice cloth’ okif going outing or dating ok can understand that.. right:D.. what if everyday stay home n wearing nice cloth?? just curious n confuses:p ok chill ✌��:)

  • He has photographic memory. Whatever he do not know he reads. He remember what he reads. I remember when I was 7 years old. I remember what I read. Just once. Now I read 20 times. Close the book, my mind is blank.we human are not born equal. Among the billion will come a few spread over a period of times, someone special… GIFTED. With special power greater responsibility.

  • Hear alarm press snooze, repeat process 6 times until i garner enough will to live, then press snooze again.Then log roll onto the floor, continuing pressing snooze until the fear of not waking up sets in and then proceed to get up. Solid video boss!!

  • I like to play some upbeat/workout music first thing in the morning loud enough to wake me up and motivate myself lol. A good session workout wakes me up and kick starts my day and then cold showers wake me up completely. And putting my phone alarm in the washroom near to the sink is a good trick. Ones I am in the washroom then i splash some cold water and wash my face that completely wakes me up. Thanks for the video, Charlie:) I like to play your videos in the background while working. Keep it up ��

  • Great video! Well articulated… Articulated so well that if that if someone stated much of what you said verbatim in a job interview, they’d either land that job (with minimum contemplation on the part of the hiring manager) or be rejected in fear of said person surpassing the hiring manager.

  • is not the couch or the tv, I work 40 hours a week or more, I go school taking 3 classes, i have to do homework and i have 2 kids, who is going to have time to exercise?

  • Coming to actually watch this video now from 2 years ago when I was putting it on my watch later list… Man I’m glad yet regretting it at the same time cuz i could do things a lot better back then lol

  • very true, the bad thing is that schools aren’t doing much to promote this. We need to get the kids started early to enjoy doing it for the rest of their lives. 



  • This video is so incredibly important. All of the steps that Charlie mentioned, I can attest do in fact work. Waking up earlier makes it seem like you are a completely different person in terms of how productive you can be.

  • Elon Musk Need To Make A Engineering School. For Space Engineering And Technology, Located In San Francisco Use A old military base

  • The answer about shower is not about hygiene, it’s because in the shower you have time to think without distractions and interruptions. It’s a time for reflection and this releases your brain to soar.

  • Walking is too little exercise for me. It just doesn’t get my heart rate up and makes little difference to my energy levels. I’d say MOST people easily get 30 minutes a day just by walking to work, lunch, etc but people should run or some shit if they want to make a difference

  • 1: stop compulsive buying and use as less money as you can
    2: learn history,geography,politics,economics and science
    3: stop your addictions
    4: buy objects at flea markets then sell them higher on ebay
    5: use the money to make a company who sells a new innovative invention and patent it
    6: use the money to reapeat step 5 as many times as possible
    7: PROFITS

    Brilliant, this is so true. Just watched the video and a few others. He certainly does know what he is talking about.

  • Charlie is the man! He makes great content about personal finance that has helped so many people improve their lives. His work ethic is very motivating to see, and sets a good example for his viewers. He has inspired me to work towards building my own YouTube channel where I talk about business, personal finance, and self-improvement to help people live more successful lives.
