I wake early, sometimes too early, and find it easy to start work straight drinking my first coffee. On the other hand, I can find it hard to stay up late.
But many struggle, and many tell me it takes them till mid-morning to get down to any work. As one of my clients is about to start a new job and wants to be seen as a morning person I thought this would be helpful for him, and maybe you.
How to become a time wizard by mastering morning
This article came as an email this morning and describes how the author trained herself to get up earlier. These 6 tips stood out but I also suggest you head over and read her article.
- I started going to bed earlier
- I set my alarm for 15 minutes earlier than my original waking time
- I let myself get used to the new waking time (15 minutes earlier) for about a week
- Once I was able to get up for a whole week without issues at the new waking time, I decided to dial my bedtime and waking time back another 15 minutes
- I stabilized at the new, new bedtime and waking time
- Then I cranked things back another 15 minutes until I hit my target waking time.
I also began using a silent (vibrating) alarm to minimize the impact of my experiment on my girlfriend! It gave her the time to complete some study and also to work on her business.
