I received an email today from a reader who is a part-time trader and is having a tough time fitting his nightly stock analysis in around his job and family responsibilities. Everybody has different responsibilities and schedules, so this may not be of much help, but here is my schedule for tonight, copied directly from my journal:
4:30-5:00: Drive home
5:15-5:30 : Work out (Treadmill, Chest and Triceps)
6:45-7:30: Play and learning activities with daughter
7:30-9:30: Watch DVRed shows (Prison Break, Heroes and Studio 60)
9:30-11:30: Stock Analysis (Sector Watchlist, Stock Watchlist, Journal notes, read blogs and financial sites).
11:30-1:00 Watch DVRed Monday Night Football
1:00-2:00 Read God Delusion by Richard Dawkins
DVR has been a huge time saver. I can get through a 1 hour show in only 40 minutes by skipping commercials and opening credits, and 3 hour football games only take about and hour and a half to get through. The disadvantage is I miss out on any funny commercials, but hey, that's what youtube's for . . .
