A Perfect Morning

Have you ever had one of those mornings where everything goes exactly according to plan? Meaning no dog pee to clean up in the bathroom, no forgotten laundry in the dryer begging to be folded, no emergency homework assistance, no sleeping too late, etc, etc.

I had a perfect morning today. Check it out...
  • Woke up at 4:30 AM (no alarm needed these days)
  • Ate my pre-workout snack of Cheerios, 1/2 banana and soy milk and finished chapter 1 of "Presentation Zen"
  • Assembled Rebecka's lunch and did a quick tidy of the living room
  • Got to the gym right at 5 AM
  • Worked out for exactly an hour
  • Showered & dressed
  • Cooked oatmeal and tidied the kitchen
  • Ate breakfast and started chapter 2 of "Presentation Zen"
  • Put on makeup
  • Washed the dishes
  • Drove to work and walked in the office door exactly at 7:30 AM

I wish this could be every morning.

Ahmad, my advice to you would be to pick one habit that you want to change first. I would recommend eating breakfast. :) Whatever you decide, focus on this one habit for 30 days (per the zenhabits.net approach). At the end of the 30 days, this habit should be second nature and you can tackle the next habit you want to change. But remember, it's ultimately what makes you happy and fulfilled. So, pick your habits based on these criteria.

Oh - and to answer your question about when I sleep - that would be from 9 PM to 4:30 AM.
