The pursuit of a wannabe applying himself !

Readers and fellow writers, I’m Jasdeep and the wannabe in question. As an ardent YouTuber, I was browsing through my subscriptions thinking to view something new or see a watched video again. It was then that I happened to come across this video, embedded below, a Ted talk from Portuguese entrepreneur Filipe Castro Matos — How waking up every day at 4.30am can change your life | Filipe Castro Matos | TEDxAUBG

Filipe has also written a great article on a similar subject — 12 Lessons of Waking Up at 4:30 a.m. for 21 Days. I encourage you all to watch the Ted Talk and read the article. For reference I’ve listed the 12 lessons, as mentioned by Filipe, below:

  1. If you want to change something in your life, it’s always better if you have support along the way.
  2. People like to see different things.
  3. People don’t wake up earlier because they think they have to sleep less.
  4. Eliminate the obstacles along the way.
  5. Your physical condition helps a lot.
  6. Forget snooze!
  7. I like to sleep, but my body only needs 6 or 7 hours.
  8. More working hours.
  9. I get messages out of the way.
  10. More time at the gym.
  11. A new view on the world.
  12. Yes, you need the will to do it.

As you can see, it’s quite an elevator pitch. But, what does it all have to do with me ?

For the next 21 days, starting from 10th July, I shall start my day @4:30AM in the morning and every 10PM, I’ll be giving my account of the day @Medium. To tap my progress either search #21Earlydays or follow me on vine.

Am I going to change my life or make a complete @$$ of myself or achieve the epic fail, I DON’T know. But, readers and fellow writers, I would like to share this journey with you. As the immortal words of Walter White go, “Chemistry is the science of change, growth, decay, transformation.”

I believe life is a lot like that too.

Fingers crossed Amigos…

Obrigado !!!
