I’m a morning person
I wasn’t always that way. But I joined the Army. The Army is a morning person. So I had to adjust my precious sleep schedule, which meant missing NBA playoff games which started at 9 pm EST (which is ridiculous, those poor saps on the west coast can watch a tape delay.)
But eventually I got into the habit — indeed I saw, and still see the immense value of waking up before everyone else in the house is up.
Jen MacQuarrie wanted a change in her life, and she decided to start waking up at 5 AM at the behest of a guy named Robin Sharma who has a youtube channel on that very topic (see the link below).
Now Jen has a coaching business, and she’s taken a cue from Robin Sharma by identifying herself as the 5 AM wakeup queen.
I got a chance to talk with Jen a couple of weeks ago, and I share her story with you now.
Among the highlights from our chat:
- The “ah ha” moment that led to Jen starting the 5 am wakeup routine
- Why deviating from a habit doesn’t mean you’ve broken the habit
- Knowing the “WHY” behind doing something (like wakeup at 5 am)
