I have an appointment with a client 8:30am every morning. That was the only way I could have something to do this summer. Because the appointment is pretty early, I try to make sure I sleep around midnight. Of course, it doesn’t work out that way as most times I sleep at 1am, 2am or even 3:30am especially when I am reading an Emerson work.
My alarm was previously set for 6:30am, but I moved it to 6:35am. God has been very kind to me, and I have never had to go terribly late for the early morning meetings.
In order to be there not later than 8:30am, I must leave my house not later than 7:45am. If I leave home 2 minutes later, I’ll definitely arrive 2 minutes later. Works like magic. And so when I see I’m running late, I tend to do the most important things. For example, I skip breakfast, knowing that if I attempted it, I may not need to take breakfast in a long time. I may also skip checking Twitter or Facebook till I get on the train.
This has good lesson which I can apply to other areas of my life. Do the most important things now, so you can afford the more interesting things later.
So help us God.
