1. Waking Up Early in the Morning - Deepstash

1. Waking Up Early in the Morning

Waking up early in the morning has its own advantages with close to no disadvantages.

For those who find it a little too much, I wanna tell them that by waking up just 2–3 hours before others, you become 10 times more ‘dominating’ and 10 steps ‘ahead’ of all your peers.

This although seems a bit exaggerated but trust me once you do this for 10 days, you’ll get to experience it first hand.

Also, starting your day by meditating just for 10 minutes can act as the cherry on the cake.

Long days can leave us tired and exhausted. But, our days would be less hard and exhausting if we weren't so tired through them.

Most night owls have to wake a similar time to other people. It means they are forced to sleep five or six hours instead of sleeping for seven or eight hours. Consequently, they feel tired all the rime.

Getting an early start

Plan your morning the night before and stick to your plan. 
If a new task comes in that isn’t 100% urgent, designate a time that you’ll work on it uninterrupted or try to delegate the problem solving as much as possible until you have time to deal with it.
