We may think that the morning is the start of the day. But most mornings are the peak of any day’s productive activity. If you don’t wake up at the peak, you are only creating a downfall. It’s all about time.
1. Don’t begin by with the worst things in the morning, unless they are not the worst
You don’t wake up and start watching a movie or playing video games on a normal day unless you are paid that way, or made better that way. Take a bath, read a book or focus on your work just as the day starts.
Then if you have a job or bigger things to attend to you have bigger things to attend to. Don’t fail your day from its start.
2. Rest is luxury. Cut it short because you can afford it at serious cost
I’ve seen lizards trading it with their lives, enjoying basking the sun on rock surfaces that can get very hot, and dying out of such heat as the sun approaches midday.
Where I come from they say work is morning [sic]. So, some can get to an extend of filling their tummies at midday after hours of serious work. The idea is to push something before your mind changes about it and before you can mix with some people who can influence you off your tracks. You wake up alone or with the very few, then more and more people fill your day. Again, when you are on your own or with the few.
I also had a friend from a culture that believes that a human is only born again each time he gets up, and male or female erection happening in the morning without arousal (when it happens, especially to the young boys) was thought of as being rebirth. This may not be so, according to you, but science thinks you’re much better in the morning, efficiency-wise. And construction companies may love to have their manual force working from around 06:00hrs.
3. The count of ten: Waking up against hesitation
I love it. When I am awake but resisting to be really awake, stuck in the sheets, or when I am about to resist an alarm. I count to ten quickly, cleanly. Only to find myself standing aside the bed at seven. Amazing.
I don’t want to betray this strategy, so I keep it working.
You can find ways to break out of procrastination. Don’t betray them. Because they can rescue a moment from being lost in your life.
4. Move your day from not then, from not that morning, but yesterday
Because the morning is already the peak. Let yesterday be its starting point. Planning ahead is always great.
Means to get out of each crisis are like water in the river. They don’t get into their sea of crises without having originated from the source on some day or days before.
5. Don’t be a beigginer at managing your morning time everymorning.
You don need to be knowing what you wanna do way before you do it except when what you wanna do comes in as an emergency. You plan it, right was before. In the passage above we said you move your days from yesterday but you can also have your yesterday seven days back or a year back moving just one morning and one day you’re in today.
I’ve found myself throwing a different calendar at myself so that when it’s July I know what to do most. I rest in July. September is my intellectual month, I read as much as I can and connect myself with the greater minds.
6. If you care for yourself shorten the time you care yourself (or attend others) in the morning but fail to shorten the quality.
This quite explains itself. And I quickly taught myself that.
If you cook for yourself, make up, dress, love yourself and others, find the means to shorten the time you take at that. Because that care is not productivity itself as it is a prerequisite to productivity.
You may resist it but we are now serious consumers. The only thing we can do about our being consumers is to buy things that can help us achieve big, and here the message is, buy stuff that can help you to shorten the time you take care of yourself. When it took us, humans, six minutes to prepare ourselves a cup of coffee, it was taking us six hours or a quarter of a day on preparing sixty cups of coffee separately. The espresso machine was our answer.
Your duty is to know how much time a certain activity can rob in your life per month or per year if you want to regain your time. Regaining your time is not denying the coffee you prepare yourself some coffee but giving yourself a machine to do so but also not forgetting that the biggest machine is you and you can only become more and more efficient.
