So Chris, how did you come up with Asset Gift?

So my girlfriend and I are actually looking into wedding planning and the cost of it. As a result one of the things that I was wondering is why can't my guests just give me Bitcoin? I would prefer that you know, because this way maybe one day the wedding could pay for itself, right?

It came to my head. I was like, oh, that's a good idea.  I let it sit and then maybe a month after or so we were  looking at venues and it came up again. I have a web development background so I've just basically challenged myself instead of like talking about the idea to actually do it. So that's how it came about. I asked my girlfriend, my sister and my close advisor and they agreed that it's a good idea. So that's kind of the process of how it happened, but it was through basically wanting to find a way to collect crypto for my future wedding.

1. Finding A Balance

So this is good question also to go back into the background. So because of COVID, I went back home to spend time with my family and girlfriend. My girlfriend lives in Denmark and my family's in Jamaica. So I split my time between those two countries. Mostly when I'm in Jamaica my day starts with some coffee and breakfast.I like to start my day slow so I'll go to my car and drive to the coffee store when I'm in Denmark. I just walk down the street, get a croissant. My mind doesn't feel ready to start doing focus work until about 10. In the time in between, I'll do basic stuff, like go on YouTube or read a book.

Once my mind is in the state of like able to focus, I'll go find a quiet space to work. So in that'll be like a library or in my house somewhere usually without distractions. I try to work in like two hour maximum sprints because I find that after two hours I become less productive and then I'll take a break and then focus on something else. Then at some point I'll either play football or go run depending on the day. Exercise helps when you eat and then connect with people and then back to work at night. So kind of a good routine where you're never working too often. You still get time to have downtime, focus on other things, browse internet, hang out with your family or friends.

2. Building A Routine

For me it was just about like observation, like observing when I wasn't productive. There's both the mental and the physical health aspect and they're both actually tied together for me. When I don't have that routine I find myself very confused. I need the routine. I also need to have moments where I can remove myself from distraction and that could even mean family. Like whether it's my parents at home or my girlfriend or phone. If I don't have that, then what happens is when I don't get the work that I want to get done. That makes me feel very defeated.

It creates a cycle, because the moment you get distracted it leads to feeling like you didn't accomplish what you're supposed to accomplish. And then you feel like you lost a whole day. The physical part is just great because running or football helps to take your mind off of everything. It helps to blow off steam and destress. Yeah, it took a while to realize these things by myself but it's very important. Having a specific routine is critical for me.

How do you track and plan your day?

My apple calendar. I have a notebook where I just write down the daily goals I wanna accomplish.

When I write my goals down it feels like they're one step closer to reality.

I just ordered the new iPhone. I also use the smart scale. I like to track my weight. I like the smart scale because it gives me a historical view of my health. I love that feature.
