My father had this saying "Any day you wake and get out of bed is a good day". Not sure where he got that from but it seems appropriate this today. One other saying "The early bird catches the worm". Well I think both of those summarized this morning. You see I am a late riser. I am not talking 9, 10 or 11 am. But 7 am is the norm if I am working from the home office. I dread 6 am airplane rides since I am dysfunctional the remainder of the day. Might as well as say the same about 7:30 am meetings. If you want me to volunteer for anything you best call before 7am. Although I may not remember what I volunteered for.
I have realized that I have been missing the best part of the day. Since I have started my early morning exercise I have not really started before 7:30. This morning I hauled my butt out of bed, checked email (no one worked late last night) and decided to hit the neighborhood to exercise and wake up. It is so peaceful and quiet at that time of day. Not to mention cool as in temperature. Your mind is so clear that time of day. Great time to think. I think I must change this to become a best practice. Get up early and outdoors.
