I’m not a morning person.
In fact, for people that are morning people, know that I don’t get you. I want to be like you. I like the idea of living life the way you live it. I love the idea of meeting God early in the morning and taking advantage of the time of day when the world is asleep.
I just can’t. I’m not wired to jump out of bed and get moving.
It takes me a while to get going. I often even joke about quitting my job every morning when I first get up. I have to slowly wake up before I can get anything done. Once I’m up, have had some water, and have taken a shower, I’m usually pretty good to go… before that? Not so much.

- complete what may have you stuck the day before
Use the morning, no matter when it starts for you.
Just a little tip I’ve learned along the way.
What else could you say about this or productivity as a whole?
