Getting up earlier provides you with the time and context to accomplish the things that you said you couldn't do.
Next time, you think "there is no way I can do that", ask yourself to get up earlier and work smarter.
Next time, someone gives you an excuse as to why they cannot do something; tell them to try getting up earlier.
Robert M. Pirsig wrote Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Over 120 publishers rejected the book. Once published, the book sold over 5 million copies.
Mr. Pirsig did an interview in 1974 with the National Public Radio. He described the process of writing the book. He mentioned it took him four years to complete. He would wake up at 2 a.m. and write until 6 a.m., then eat breakfast, then head to work. Mr. Pirsig would nap during his lunch break.
Next time, you give yourself an excuse, think of Robert M. Pirsig.
