"Lose an hour in the morning and you'll spend the rest of the day looking for it."
Heard this from Darren Hardy this morning and I couldn't agree more.
Starting my day earlier has dramatically increased my productivity. It's also improved my quality of life because starting earlier also means I can finish earlier if I want to, freeing up time for study, admin and - let's be honest - wine.
I always advise finding what works for you rather than slavishly following someone else's system. But that means actually trying different options before you decide, instead of just assuming they aren't for you.
So, if you've always resisted setting your alarm for 5.30am or earlier, why not give it a shot for a week and see if you get more done.
Just remember you'll also need to go to bed earlier too, or you'll be a zombie by Day 3.
