Well, I wasn't up before the sun, but I'm up before I need to be on a Wednesday morning, and my writing is done before 8AM. No snooze on a 6:15 alarm. Tomorrow it will be set for 5:45 so I can be productive before I've got to leave for work at 7 without being in a hurry (more often than not I'm up at 6:30 and rushing to get out of the house).
I'd "like to gradually work my way to a 5AM wake-up call. We'll see how it goes. I'm sure my wife will be happy because I'm coming to bed sooner; and I'm sure my book will be happy because it will be open more often. And I might just be able to get started on my review of Legacy!
Creating new habits isn't the easiest thing in life...neither is breaking old ones. But the only way to get it done is to Just Do It, Nike style.
Find an area in your life that needs improving. Find an old habit that needs breaking. Find a new habit that needs establishing (it's going to take more than 21 days...at least according to James Clear...I haven't read Atomic Habits yet, but it's on the list).
Take the plunge. Just Do It.
The first step is acknowledging the need for improvement, admitting the bad habit that needs purging, realizing the potential benefits of establishing new and better habits. Will power and commitment (an immense amount of them) are what take care of the rest.
I can't honestly say that I'm excited about this conversion. But I am excited about the benefits that I think it will bring to my life, and I am excited for the challenge. I have my writing to hold me accountable, and if you are reading this, I urge you to hold me accountable for anything that I publish here).
Looks like I'm going to have to put together a little morning routing to ensure efficiency.
Let the games begin.
