Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! The sound of your alarm clock rocks you out of your sound sleep. Your first thought is to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep.
Lately, I’ve found myself doing this more often than I should. I’d rather stay in bed than get up and be productive in the mornings.
I know I shouldn’t, yet I do. Why? Because I’ve let myself get out of the valuable habit of rising early.
I’ve been working at reforming the habit of becoming an early riser. And I think it’s valuable to every leader to rise early and get out of bed.
Everyone can make excuses as to why they want to sleep in. Maybe it’s the fact you had a late night. Or you’re just not feeling well rested. Or it could be you don’t want to face the reality there’s a new day that’s ready to greet you.
