Ryan Seacrest became a familiar face in show business by hosting American Idol, but he didn’t stop there. He has been adding successful ventures to his plate including stepping behind the scenes to produce popular television shows like “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “American Idol,” hosting a nationally syndicated radio show, starting a clothing and skin care line and starting a charity called the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
Seacrest’s most recent venture involved a significant move from the west to east coast to co host “Live” with Kelly Ripa. The lingering question considering Seacrest’s growing list of significant undertakings is “how does he do it?” In a nutshell, Seacrest keeps on top of his many ventures with a disciplined and balanced schedule. He starts his mornings by waking up to an alarm and squeezing in a shower and shave, but makes sure not to sacrifice his physical and social needs in the hustle of everyday life. Seacrest said in an interview from the New York Times that earlier in his career it was tempting for him to feel guilty for making time for a workout, but now realizes the release of exercise is essential. He will even bring a trainer when traveling so as not to drop his routine.
Ryan Seacrest has learned to segment his day and his week so that he has time set aside for everything he needs to accomplish and he isn’t overrun by emails and demands. He said that this took a lot of self discipline, and fortunately means he has time left over on weekends to indulge in good company, good food, and good wine. He describes himself as a foodie and ensures he has some time to enjoy the pleasures of life while pursuing success. He’s also learned to put the phone down from time to time, especially on vacation, in order to rest and relax.
When Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) looks at what he hopes to achieve in life he thinks of the late Dick Clark who he worked with a few years before his death. He remembers watching Clark as a child and admiring the sense of ease he conveyed. Clark told him that when you make it look easy you are doing it well.
