How Three Simple Words Changed My Life
Waking up at 4:30AM brings me closer to everything I want to create in my life.
Habits form way easier in the morning, than they do at night. And that friends, is science.
After two weeks of 21 Damn Early Days, my sentiment about waking up at 4:30AM remains the same: my life is awesome when I am getting up early and getting after life.
In bed very late and definitely not up at 4:30AM.
Day 8 of 21 Damn Early Days... was completely worth skipping.
I had a 7:00AM flight to New Orleans [NOLA], which meant I had to be at the airport for 5:00AM. While normally I would dread the thought of getting up at 4:00AM, it felt like I had been training for it for a week. Actually, I had.
It’s only been a week since starting “21 Damn Early Days” but it has already been life changing. Honestly. I feel like I’ve learned more about myself and what I want my life to be like in this last week than I have in the last year.
In bed by 10:23PM. Up at 5:22AM.
Day 4 of 21 Damn Early Days... involved snooze.
In bed by 9:08PM. Up at 4:37AM.
Day 3 of 21 Damn Early Days taught me sleep matters... a lot.
I’m going to go right out and say it: day 2 was definitely harder than day 1. Maybe it was a little bit of the initial hype wearing off or maybe it was the “less than 6 hours of sleep” I got. Either way, by 6:30PM I was definitely feeling it.
In bed by 9:45PM. Up at 4:24AM.
Day 1 of 21 Damn Early Days was a complete success.
The thought of getting up at 4:30AM and having enough uninterrupted free time to workout, hot tub, grab morning coffee, go for a walk, have a good chat, eat breakfast, get ready for the day and get a few hours of work done – all before 9:00AM – is exhilarating.
You didn’t dream of becoming an 80-hour-a-week accountant, the under-appreciated receptionist, or an over-worked sales person, did you?
