How I’m Going to Wake Up at 5 AM Every Single Day in 2016 (& How You Can Do It Too)

  1. Solutions to problems you can only wish you had.

Why a habit review?

The truth is, your habits shape much more of your year than any single event.

You snooze, you lose. I guess I lost in 2015.

One of the first habits I looked at was waking up by 6:30.

Step 1: Create your own purpose

The first thing I needed was a reason to get up.

The screenshot was taken on 12/30

Step 2: Get some accountability

Question: What happens if I don’t get up at 5 am to read and write?

  1. A machine
  2. A coach (hint, hint)
  3. A customer
  4. An audience
  1. It gets angry if you miss a deadline.
  2. The accountability grows with the size of your audience.

Step 3: Start ahead of time

This is the last, and maybe most important step.

Your turn to kick ass in 2016.

So, does it work?

  1. Get yourself some accountability in one of the 5 ways I showed you.
  2. Start before you’re ready.
