Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?

Relax, and let it come to you, don’t force anything.

I do a blackout, where I only focus on the task at hand until I finish it.

What is your routine start and end of the day ?
Make Vietnamese Ice Coffee, go for a bike route, and play some dope music loudly. Gotta make every day like my last and dance to it and then be inspired by everything and anything and I always find more stuff to be inspired by, like Behance, tumblr or art books or fashion instagrams, and then play some video games with the homies.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
Probably my hairtie or zippo, my hair gets in my face sometimes and smoking helps relieve stress for me too.
