I came across this article yesterday and after reading it, I couldn’t help but feel compelled to write a companion article. This is not intended to mock people who have all the time in the world to wake up at 5:30 voluntarily, this is just to make people who have that luxury feel bad. Also, that last sentence was a joke. Also, two sentences ago was a thinly veiled defense mechanism because it is a luxury my wife and I no longer have and IF I ONLY had that much time I would get SO much more blogging done…and by blogging I mean Internet surfing.
Waking up early every day for the past 21 months has been one of the most life changing things that has ever happened to me. Having to wake up a few times each night is one of the most character-building things in parenthood. Even though our son now (mostly) sleeps through the night, he’ll still wake up at about 5:30-6am. Today, I’m still waking up early and I want to reveal how I did it and what happened to me.
