“11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
-1 Thessalonians 5:11
Having a daily routine has the ability to set you apart from those around you. For example my daily routine goes as follows
- Read bible 4:30am
- Workout at 5am
- Work 9-3
- Train or content 4- dinner
- Rest/relax from dinner until bed
This daily routine tends to keep me more focused on my end goal that I have in mind because I feel that I am working towards something. Momentum is very important when trying to achieve something, so this routine is creating momentum for me. It also forces me to make myself uncomfortable, which forces me to grow.
I force myself to wake up 15 minutes earlier than I could so that I make sure I get my morning reading in. I’ve found that it is the most beneficial thing. I did get away from it for a little while but now that I have started back up, I am reaping the benefits once again.
When you don’t have a “schedule” it’s easy to procrastinate, which is someone’s worst enemy. I can tell you that I was the worst procrastinator ever until I really started reading and waking up earlier, after that I found it was easy to do other things because I had momentum for the day right of the bat.
Start creating momentum for yourself. Make yourself uncomfortable and wake up just 15 minutes earlier, or simply stop hitting snooze. Create a daily routine and change the game with me.
