Wanting to start a new business, a blog, or a new exercise routine? The best time to get started is before the sun comes up.
Chances are you are a father, a mother, or are working a full time job. Starting a new business, blog, exercise routine, or anything else new will be difficult to do during normal waking hours. If you really want to make your dream become reality, you’re going to have to start getting into the disciplined habit of waking up early.
My alarm goes off at 5 a.m. on most mornings. That is my queue to strap on my running shoes and hit the street, or spend time writing on this blog. I used to tell myself I would rather not wake up that early, so I would just write later today and run during the evening. That never happened, so I had to make a change. If I wanted to be more serious about my race training, and more serious about writing on my blog I was going to have to wake up before the sun comes up – every day.
Why start before the sun comes up? Why not just start in the evening when I’m still awake? The reason is simple. If you haven’t started yet there is a reason. So, get going, tell Siri right now, “wake me up at 5 a.m.”
