As drivers, it’s easy to let driving be the main and only focus – letting things like getting enough food, water, sleep and self-care fall by the wayside. After all, there are bonuses/goals/surges to chase, right? Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur makes the case for why establishing a daily ritual is good for drivers, and how it helps him earn more.
One thing a full time driver must contend with is the grind of the job. Like any job, we have to get up and do the same thing day after day. But unlike most jobs, we are not paid a regular salary. We do not have a boss making sure we get to work on time.
We, the drivers, are the ones who instill and enforce the discipline into our life. Without self-discipline, we won’t be successful drivers. Without self-discipline, it is too easy to blow off a day here and a day there and before you know it, you have lost your edge. You forget why you signed up to drive in the first place. Priorities get lost.
