My first book: Early To Rise is officially available today

I hate getting up early but I love being up early. You can learn how to become an early riser by reading my book. Every copy comes with a full audio version as well as 30 days of email encouragement. Change your life by changing what time you wake up. If I can do it with three kids under five then you can too.

    Today was my day one of this book, and I sure do appreciate you writing it. As I work to master the 7 decisions in my own life, and as I just read that chapter in Andy’s book…I thought yeah, yeah, yeah. I know it, I’ve always wished I was a morning person, but I’ve never been able to win the fight with my sleepy brain in the morning.

    Today I did. And Tomorrow I will too. Thank you again for this tool.

    I’ve been listening to in the loop on my commute to and from work, and I heard you mention this principle a few times as being such a big one. It’s dripped on me for a few weeks and I finally decided to look for your website and your challenge. I was thrilled to find there was a 30 book, a tangible plan. That’s all I needed. Along with a big cup of coffee.

    Best of luck. I hope this feeds your family well as it feeds others’.

    Well I made it. Today is Day 30 of the Early To Rise challenge. 

    I had signed up when Andy first set up the original series of emails and followed them for a week or so until I was ‘too busy’.  I even reviewed a preview of the book when Andy was looking for some feedback before he launched his Early To Rise book.  

    But this time, I committed to the challenge.  I started each day by getting up before anyone else in the house, and worked through a morning routine based on reading, writing and silence.  Then my challenge was ‘paused’ for a week or so when we passed the flu around the house. In the past I might have thrown in the towel, but this time I just picked up where I left off.  And even then it wasn’t perfect every day, usually because our baby was up early too.  On those couple of days I enjoyed some one on one time with the baby, instead of feeling frustrated that my morning plan was interrupted. 

    One of things I did each morning was open up Evernote, and write for a few minutes about what I was thinking, what happened the day before, or just reflecting on life.  Nothing too deep, but just a chance to organize my thoughts and get some ideas down on paper.  (This post is the result of writing earlier this morning.) I had not done that before but now I really enjoy the process.  

    I have always wanted to be a morning person.  In the past I’d start by going to bed early one night, getting up the next day early, and then after a productive day, I would stay up too late and ignore my alarm the next morning.  During Andy’s challenge and with his book as a practical and inspring guide, it was different this last 30 days.  Although some days I did stay up later than planned, I still got up early the next morning. 

    Now when I go to bed I look forward to waking up early, and sitting by the fireplace with my coffee, book, and the silence of the house before the family is up.  I plan to keep it up and think that I’m actually becoming a morning person.  

    Thanks for the handbook Andy!

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment
    (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog
    writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
