At the beginning of the year I wrote about having a new year’s resolution. We are about midway through February now. So… how are you doing on your resolution?
Mine has been waking up earlier in the morning. This is part of my quest to transform from a night owl to a morning person. I’ve attacked this from two angles by both waking up earlier most days and also by aiming for an earlier bedtime at night. So far, it’s worked better than I’d even hoped.
Through this process I had an intriguing insight. Whenever I had tried to wake up early in the past it was also to workout. This was never something I was able to maintain. Since I’ve been waking up early this year I haven’t been using that time to workout but to read, check emails, and go in to work early. This has proved immensely more doable. It made me wonder how often we attempt things but we bite off more than we can chew without realizing it.
