Well not maybe half over, but I have gotten a lot done. How you start your day will set the pace for how productive will be.
In the past I was an evening person. Unfortunately I married a morning person. After 13 years of marriage my wife Darnelle is finally changing me.
By 4:45am she has the lights on, TV turned to the news and the hair blower going. If that is not enough she will begin to quiz me about the day's schedule. No chance of going back to sleep at that point. So what to do?
Many of you know that over the last year I lost a ton of weight. The follow-up to that is now I am hitting the gym on a regular basis. What better time to work out than 5:30 in the morning. The phones aren't ringing. I am already up and the gym is practically empty, giving me my own private work out area. So off I go. The most important part of this is that I don't have time to make excuses, I just take my vitamins, slip on my gym shoes and head to the YMCA. So the end result is I have finally found a benefit of being married to a morning person. Thanks to my morning person wife, weight lifting and cardio training has become a way of life for me.
After my trip to the Gym, I still have time to shower, dress, eat breakfast and return messages by 8am. I even get some posting on Active Rain in by then. That may not be a half a day's work, but its a great start.
