We are going to talk about getting up a little earlier than you do now.
I know we like our sleep, but this new habit is absolutely necessary. I’m asking you to trust me that this is essential in reaching your goal to live an organized life.
Get up 1/2 hour before you actually HAVE TO.. If you wake up at 7:00 in the morning and you leave the house at 8, then you wake up at 6:30 now.
If you work from home and your feet hit the floor at 8:00 and you start working at 8:30, you must get up at 7:30 now.
If you are a stay at home parent you need to wake up a half hour before the mainstream of the family.
Another habit to incorporate with this one is to shower, groom and dress before anything (or you can just get yourself dressed and ready for the day, as in face washed, clothes on, hair done. If you were invited to lunch, you could grab your keys and go)
EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT LEAVING THE HOUSE.
O.G.Ps (Organizationally Gifted People) wouldn’t even think of not getting themselves together for the day, even if they are staying at home.
Weekends, sleep till you want too, BUT, SHOWER, GROOM, AND DRESS, BEFORE ANYTHING, even on weekends.
Begin to employ these two new habits and you will NOT miss the extra 30 minutes of sleep. I promise you. You will thank me for asking you to try this and You’ll be amazed by how things change in your world almost immediately.
Much Love to you!

Since I wrote this the internet and smartphones have been a real source of distraction. You need to employ “Do what you gotta before you do what you wanna!” big time where this is concerned. Phones off, stay focused, do all you need to do before you allow the phone to suck your life into oblivion and keep you from reaching your goals!
