If you have been a long time reader of my blog you already know that I have a problem with snoozing. I call myself the “snooze demon.” It may just be my worst vice.
I absolutely despise snoozing because you not only get worse sleep, you waste your precious time. There are only so many hours in the day and they go by quite fast. If you stay in bed you are going miss them.
Recently I have been doing well battling against my arch enemy. These past few days I have simply gotten up and out of bed without repeatedly hitting the snooze function on my phone. It feels very nice, but I know that getting out of bed instantly is nowhere close to being a habit of mine, so I have a lot of work to do.
But it is work I am prepared to do. I have succeeded recently in organizing many other aspects of life, but right now the glaring deficieny is my time. Now I will say, my time management is much better than most people for sure, but personally I know where I am still wasting precious hours.
CEOs and other successful people are amazing at precisely this. They don’t mess around. They have their days planned out, they arrive on time, and they leave on time. This is why they are successful and why they are paid so much. They are ruthlessly efficient. This may sound easy, but if we be real with ourselves we know how hard this really is. It’s so easy to stay in bed, to leave your house late and that it is so hard to do the exact opposite. But success comes to those who do put in the effort.
Tough through it. Manage your time well and start doing this by gaining all those hours that are lost simply due to sleeping in. Hasta la Vista Snooze Demon!
