New Years Resolutions? I don’t have any. Nothing firm anyway. I certainly don’t have a specific list of things to accomplish.
But there is one thing I want to work on throughout the next year. I want to wake up earlier. That’s it. Nothing specific, just earlier.
Why do I want to wake up earlier?
I want to be more productive, generally, and I think getting up earlier will accomplish that for me. I’m terrible at getting out of bed in the morning. I’m snoozing five or six times, getting to work later than I’d like to. I’m staying up late, but still never finding time to do some things I’d like to.
What, specifically, will I do if I wake up earlier?
Any number of things. Maybe I’ll eat breakfast (something more than string cheese – not that there’s anything wrong with string cheese, YUM!). Maybe I’ll go for a jog. Maybe i’ll pal around with KP for a while if she’s up. Maybe I’ll write a blog post. Maybe I’ll just surf the interwebs. Maybe I’ll hang some curtain rods. Maybe I’ll go to work earlier. Maybe I’ll watch the morning news. Maybe I’ll do the dishes.
I’ve made a number of new years resolutions throughout the years, most of which I’ve failed at. This time, I’m not setting a specific goal. I’m not hoping to get up at any specific time to accomplish any particular tasks. I just generally want to become more productive, and I think waking up earlier will help me do that.
Wish me luck. I’ll need it.
Oh, and just for some relative comparison – what time are y’all getting out of bed these days?
