Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
Dan, What is your health regiment? What vitamins do you use to give you energy and endurance?There is nothing that has contributed to my success more than how I treat the first 90 minutes of my day. I don’t skip on sleep. I don’t set an alarm clock. I wake up when I’m fully rested. I express gratitude aloud for the life that I have. That helps me get started. I spend 20 minutes of quiet meditation and contemplative prayer. I exercise then shower and am ready for what the day brings. I don’t spend any of that first 90 minutes watching TV, listening to news, social media, etc. I am very consistent about the vitamins I take:
- Optimal Multi (multi-vitamin)
- K2D3 (Vitamin D)
- Ortho Omega

You can’t do your best if you go to work with a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. I always choose the option that has no guarantee, no benefits but also no ceiling. Sometimes it’s better to just hold your head high and walk out.

But I want to caution you about only looking at aptitude or personality assessments. I recommend that you get a great coach to help you look at the bigger picture. Start with our new resource: 14 Questions To Clarify Your Direction and then have someone who can help see things that you don’t see. That’s what a good coach does.
I listen to your podcasts every week and they always leave me feeling inspired.

Start with the things that you already know about and enjoy.
I cannot imagine living a life where work isn’t the highest priority and use of my time!What unhealthy habits do you have? Do you work long hours? Do you not take care of yourself physically?
