I am not a morning person but I am trying to change that fact. For two weeks now I have been successful in rising between 5 and 5:30 and I am truly enjoying it. The coffee pot usually wakes me at 4:45 and when I get up that's the first place I head. With hot coffee in my hand I slowly meander to my rocking chair in my office where I finally come alive.
This morning as I drank my first cup of stimulant I couldn't help but be drawn to the appearance of the morning light coming in my window and making shadows on the wall.
With my discipline of early rising I am also being much more detailed and consistent with my to do list. I am listing each day's hopeful tasks on my computer calendar on Sunday afternoon and through the week I add to it as need be. This is working so well for me. It seems to challenge me to be able to check off the items each evening. Sometimes I get tired and think about moving a project over to the next day or week and then I rethink it and the desire to make my check mark wins out. I am really motivated by this and the success and accomplishment I am experiencing.
As I have said before I love going from to-do to ta-da! Works for me!!
