Gary Vaynerchuk's a busy man. To make sure he's ready to take on whatever the day throws at him, he's adopted two simple but effective habits to stay ahead of the game.

1. Keeping track professionally

2. Keeping track personally

“I weigh myself every day,” he says. This isn’t a healthy habit for everyone, Vaynerchuk understands — but for him, it’s a helpful reminder to take care of his body, which he hasn’t always done. “I never want to go back into a place I was in my mid-30s, where I just didn’t value my health. This is about accountability for me. It lets me have a context point of, like, OK, I went a little loose yesterday. Let’s not double down on looseness today. And it’s really helped.”
