I’ve Been Waking Up At 4:30 AM…

I’ve been getting up early all this week.

And I’m tired!

It’s Wednesday, it’s 4:44 AM, and I’m just getting rolling. I’m halfway done with my first of many coffees, and thankfully, the caffeine is starting to do it’s job.

The thing is, I meant to take naps during the day, after lunch time. But I end up not being able to carve out the time, which is no excuse, or just don’t get a good nap in.

Like yesterday, I laid down for about an hour and never really got to sleep. It was nice to lay quietly in a dark room for a while, but it didn’t help me feel more rested.

I do like getting up early but I like it even more when the average amount of sleep per day is around 7-8.5 hours per night.

I’m dedicating most of the time that I’m up early to work. It’s work on a specific project: Launching Five Figure Niche Site, my premium course. And for that, it’s perfect. I’m making great progress in that specific area. This works perfectly for my personality. I used to do this in college for big, semester long projects.

Here’s a live stream from Day 2 of the 4:30 AM week. I was a little less tired on that day.

  • What time did you wake up before you started to wake up at 4:30 AM?

  • I do not understand the fascination with many of the Silicon Valley elite and major gurus like Timothy Ferriss about getting up really early. I type this at close to 4:30AM and not because I got up that early.

    If you are awake for 16 hours and sleep for 8, why does it matter which hours of the day you do it? It reminds me of when my grandmother called me lazy for sleeping till noon even though I didnt go to bed until 6AM and slept less than her.

    Personally, I am more productive at night and am worthless in the morning despite my best efforts. Although, it appears I may have a Circadian Rhythm disorder.

    • I agree with you, Randy. I’m definitely enjoying sleeping more these past several weeks. Now, I fall asleep easily but if I wake up at 3 AM I have a hard time going back to sleep. So sometimes I just get up.
