I get up early. A lot of people think this comes naturally for me. But it doesn’t.
But that’s not what this post is about.
This post is about that early morning conversation that I have with myself that I cannot trust. The one that says, “oh just this one time it doesn’t matter….” or “Go ahead…you deserve to sleep in…you had a long night”. Never trust your early morning logic.
When things are hard, when emotions are intense…that’s not the best time to make a decision.
- When you are in middle of your workout, that’s not the time to decide how long you will work out.
- When you are in middle of a fight that is not the time to label your relationship.
- When you just lost a client, or had a slow week, that’s not the time to decide the fate of your business.
Know what you stand for. Put it in writing. And do not waiver from what you decide when things get hard. When you are in middle of the “hard part” (waking up, working out, loving someone, serving, etc) you will tend to compromise.
Do not listen to that “early morning logic” it will tell you to do whats easy, not whats right.
