An early Start

“Early to bed, Early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

Benjamin Franklin

As a child, you probably sulked when your mother told you to go to bed at an early hour so she’d have an easier time waking you up for school the next day. Ironically, as an adult after a tiring day, you relished nothing more than the chance to go to bed early. Beyond avoiding temper tantrums and dealing with a sleep-deprived child first thing in the morning, it turns out our mothers were on to something by making us start the day early.

The most productive people often tend to wake up early. Jack Dorsey, Cofounder of Twitter wakes up at 5:30am every morning and starts his day with a morning jog. Richard Branson, the Founder of Virgin airlines wakes up at 5:45am every morning and leaves the curtains open so he can rise with the sun. Mary Borra, the Chief Executive of GM may have taken it one step further. She arrives at the office every morning by 6am.

The Word "Momentum" spelt in blue ink

It is said that if you put a plank in front of the wheels of a train standing still, the train won’t even be able to start moving. However, if you put a steel wall in front of a train moving at full speed, the train will punch right through the wall. What gave the train power to punch through the wall? It’s called Momentum. If you have ever helped someone push a car, you know it requires a stronger push to get the car moving but once the wheels start turning, it gets easier especially if you are pushing downhill.

“The most important thing you can do to achieve your goals is to make sure that as soon as you set them, you immediately begin to create momentum.”

– Tony Robbins.
