“Everyday is a new day.” ...unless you have a routine. Then it's just “eat, sleep, shit, repeat,” like they say in Billions. "Don't you want to create memories? Don't you want to build your life resume and get as much out of life as you can?” Jesse Itzler said on my podcast. He's the co-founder of Marquis Jets, owner of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks, endurance athlete, former-rapper and now he's an author. "I didn't have a resume," he says. "I didn't want to have a resume. I didn't want to work for anybody." Jesse built his life. "I had no background, no experience and I had no connections." He's self-made. I don’t know who’s in charge of my life. Maybe me. I chose myself. And I still do. Everyday. But I also lend my life out. At least once every 24 hours. “We're constantly dodging arrows,” Jesse said. “Each arrow is time.” “Routines are great, but they're also a rut,” he said. “I thought wow, this is amazing. I have great balance. I have a great routine. I'm in my routine. Everything is my routine…” And he needed to get out of it. So he did something crazy, which you’ll hear on today’s episode. And you’ll learn his tricks to becoming self-made. Then you can enjoy your life. I hope. And forget your resume too. Listen to my podcast with Jesse Itzler.
