Ways to Get In The Early to Rise Mindset
1. Plan the work. Know what are you going to do the next day. In the evening before you go to bed, write down a plan for the following day.
2. Prep the place. Arrange your morning space so you don’t have waste time in the morning getting things ready. Prepare your breakfast ahead of time, pick out your clothes, and get your desk ready so you can enjoy your morning.
3. Pay the price. Don’t be afraid to give up desires or even some cash to invest in your life and your future. If you could spend $50 on a pair of slippers to help you find more time for hustle, relaxation, etc…it is worth it.
