The Day-to-Day Activities of Music Mogul Pharrell Williams

A DAY IN THE LIFE (from Fast Company)


Time He Gets Up: “Generally, around 9 a.m.” (He never uses an alarm clock.)

First Thing He Does Each morning: “First thing I do is thank the master. I thank God every day. Then I lie there for a few minutes and just sort of . . . be. Then I shower, and that’s where a lot of my concepts come from. I write songs in there sometimes. If you don’t interrupt [your subconscious] with the ego, or are like, No, it’s gotta be like this, then a lot of ideas will come. Once you start judging it and editing it, then you’re no longer tapped in. You’ve moved it over to your mind before you even realize it. So I spend a lot of that time just standing there in the water with a blank stare. It is often the reason why I’m tardy.” To potential collaborators, he adds, “When you hear me say ‘traffic,’ and I wink, you’ll know what that means.”

Apps and Other Assists: Apple’s Logic Pro. “I’m a creature of habit. Now that I’m on it, it’s hard to get me off.”

Typical Schedule: “I do phone calls from somewhere between 10:30 a.m. and noon. I’m usually entering the studio between 12 and 1. I work from 1 or 2-ish to maybe 9 or 11 every day. Somewhere between 4 and 6, I may have to get on one or two conference calls about things outside of music.”

Last Thing He Does each night: “When I get back to my room late at night, I first watch MSNBC, then some Discovery Channel stuff. Then I’ve gotta go to TiVo and look at all my esoteric aliens stuff, like Ancient Aliens. I have to spend at least 30 minutes on that a night.”

Time He Goes to Bed: “Sometime between midnight and 2 a.m.”

One Athlete’s Video Uncovers Life’s Key Lessons

This isn’t a story about a sport. It’s not a story about an athlete. It’s a universal story about an individual, about adversity, about resilience, about overcoming discouraging statistics and succeeding despite it all. I hope you all enjoy this.

Inspiration of the Day: The Nick Goepper Story

Don’t follow someone else’s “practical” blueprint. Your dream future only depends on the little actions you take today.
