Episode #3 Wake Up Earlier

There’s one thing just about everyone wishes they had: more time. This week, Dr. Tyler Schwanz joins Dr. Michael Brown to talk about a simple and powerful way to make the most of each day.

Show Notes

Rather than continuing that cycle of complaining about not having enough time, I decided to do something about it.

Three Problems

  • It is easier to blame our circumstances for a lack of time than it is to own our choices.
  • We will not achieve balance in our lives if we fail to create healthy rhythms.
  • Time is not like money because time can never be saved.

Three Principles

  • Waking up earlier gives us more time to achieve our goals.
  • The snooze button is not a friend, and it is not a reward.
  • Mornings matter, and they are often our most precious opportunity for quiet reflection.

Three Practices

  • Go to sleep and wake up at the same time seven days a week.
  • Invest in an innovative alarm clock that helps you to wake up on the first ring.
  • Commit to following a predetermined morning routine even when you don’t feel like it.
