I Get Going Early

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The early bird

I have been a lifelong early riser. It has never really been a problem. I recently discovered that I do some of my most creative work well before the break of dawn. The little hand is on the 4 most mornings when I discover that I have slept enough. An author of a popular productivity book described it as my BPT (Biological Prime Time). A favorite quote,  “Lose an hour in the morning, and you will spend all day looking for it.”—Richard Whately

  • Next to no traffic
  • Rare interruptions
  • It is quiet
  • I get to experience the sunrise
  • I get to hang out with other like-minded early risers, bakers, the coffee-making bunch, my Doughnut shop owner, and breakfast joints
  • What during normal business hours takes an hour takes me 15 minutes at the 24-hour grocery store.

I have no idea what the heck “sleeping in” is all about. Staying up late, on the other hand, is occasionally challenging. Thankfully, I do have the gift of falling asleep at the drop of a hat, mid-sentence is my favorite.

Does the Early Bird Get the Worm?

Hell if I know! I like to work out first thing, then I like to write early get my daily gratitude process going, and set figure out my “One Thing” and the goals for the rest of my day. All the while listening to music especially Saturdays, my favorite day of the week with sequential fantastic radio shows.

As a guy that measures the quality of his day by how much is accomplished, I find getting an early start gives me a boost or at least a head start. Now If only I could pace myself a little bit better. Truth be told, I occasionally burn out early and need a nap.

There Are Chickens in the Hood

As an extra bonus, I am fortunate enough to actually do have chickens near my window doing their thing early in the morning as I am getting my stuff done to keep me company and cheer me on. Exercising daily during these precious hours is my secret weapon to tying my physical health with my mental health. Crowing is like having a cheer squad to support me.
