4am Thursday hack

I read somewhere on the interwebs maybe even here on medium, about 30days of 4am starts, (ok here is the story but read it after mine ;) It’s the best thing I have ever done, and believe me I am not a morning person!

I work odd hours, I now run 2 businesses and look after a little person with special needs. I do a lot of things that don’t make sense but it works for me and 4am Thursdays are the best.

I have started telling people about my 4am starts and they are fascinated, but I don’t want to just tell you about it I want to recommend it, you don’t have to do Thursday — but if you need some “time” to get shit done, a 4am start is the answer.

If your inbox is out of control a few hours starting at 4am will be like 8 hours, no interruptions, no phone calls, sit and focus and sort those emails out.

  1. On your first 4am start, you will go through the day as usual and I promise you wont get to the end of the day and feel like you have been up since 4am
  2. emails are sorted FULL STOP
  3. I am organised and on top of everything
  4. FriYAY it’s time for the weekend and I am so on top of everything the weekend is enjoyed and there is no lingering thoughts of “everything I need to do”

Mondays you start on top, and you stay on top, so no more time “re-acting” more time working on your biz or yourself or whatever it is that needs “catch up” and once you are on top, there is a shift in your flow, and it changes the dynamic of your work.

Give it a whirl and let me know how you go!
