It was 5:30AM, my goals were completed, and I didn’t need to leave for work for another 3 hours. This was the instant that my experiment was a success. Having 3 hours in the morning to do nothing. Planning for nothing. Making time out of my day to have just three hours to myself. That was a revolutionary idea for me.
It really is the best feeling when you have that time to yourself — I prefer it in the morning and wake up at 5:30a, even Twitter is quiet at that time. My Wife on the other hand prefers it in the late hours of the night, between 12a-3a.
You don’t just have to get up early, but if you can be awake at a time when your house is quiet and you can think — that’s when you find the magic.
