How to Become a Morning Person
When you are your business, being a morning person gives you a big advantage in life. Mornings are super productive times for me, but you don’t have to be in real estate to reap the benefits.
Mornings also set the tone for the day. You feel great knowing you’ve paid yourself first... there’s no procrastination guilt. If you’ve ever suspected you’re squandering your time at night, just keep a time journal. Write down how you spent your hours. That alone might motivate you to make a change!
You have way more willpower in the morning. During the day, exercising your willpower wears it out. By the time night rolls around, how often are you charged up to get down to work on your next big project?
The morning is when you’re least likely to be distracted. Being a morning person means you get to pay yourself first every day. Exercise? Writing a novel? Learning a new language? The morning is a perfect time. Ask yourself: How many “emergency” phone calls are you likely to get at 6AM? Now what about 1PM? (It’s funny how emergencies tend to happen during business hours.)
Here are 3 tips to help you make the “morning person transformation”:
1. Picture your personally productive morning. Imagine it, see yourself doing it. Smell the coffee, as it were. What will you do?
2. Plan your morning. Determine how much time you’re going to have and plan what you’re going to do in that time. Do as much as you can the night before to make the path easier for yourself: Lay out clothes, get the materials ready, and set that coffeemaker!
3.Train yourself to rise early. Roll back your alarm 10 - 15 minutes a day for as much time as you need.
Don’t let the world spend your time for you! Make the morning person transformation!
