4:00 A.M. A Productivity Argument (2013)
As you will discover in these pages that I begin testing the idea of waking up at 4:00 A.M. out of desperation and frustration, I never expect to find two full hours of focus and concentration.
In my experience (guess what I used to do too) this is what people do:
Wake up Running, Run to Work, Run at Work, Run to Home, Deal with Family Routines, Hope Family goes to bed, Work on your most important stuff.”
We have done it for generations, and it is wrong. We should:
“Work on your most important stuff so we don’t need to run to work, at work, to home and instead of dealing with family, enjoying family”
When you think about it makes sense to do your most important stuff first, but for some reason we do it last. To accomplish that, you need to switch your pattern, I did it, and the experience was fantastic.
Think about the following: When was the last time you got two hours of Focus Work?
(My answer is this morning, at 4:00 A.M.)
