The First 90 Minutes of the Day Belong to You. What Are You Doing With It?

Have you ever wondered why many of the most successful entrepreneurs that you follow on social media and read articles about wake up early? Waking up early allows them to focus on themselves and get things done that they need to get done before everyone else wakes up and needs their attention.

Some of them use this time to work on their physical health by exercising and getting a work out in. Some of them use this time to focus on their mental health by meditating. Some of them even just do this so they can get to their tasks that they want to accomplish before the work day gets started.

Either which way, waking up early is the key to your success in the future. What you do in the early hours of the day will determine what dreams and goals you will accomplish in the future. Wake up early and be productive with that time.

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” – Benjamin Franklin

The first 90 minutes of the day are yours, to work on and create the life you truly want to live. Between 4:30am and 6am is when I work on myself, my body, my dreams and my vision for life; distraction free and with a fresh mind, body and soul.

For most of you, waking up that early is a weird concept but for me waking up and rolling out of bed to go to work for someone else is a weird concept. If you’re not doing something for your own pleasure, personal development and your dreams when you wake up, then you’re simply wasting the best part of the day.

Your life won’t change until you give yourself the gift of time to create and work on yourself and your ideas. I can assure you the number one reason people never get to live the life they want is they simply never give themselves the time to imagine a new life. To work and create the best version of themselves and work on their ideas, dreams and vision for life.

If you don’t make yourself and your dreams a priority then you will end up leaving this earth never having done what you truly wanted to do and find yourself in the rat race wondering why your life is the way it is.

“Make every day a great day by starting the day on your own terms and doing something for yourself and your dreams before you do anything else!” – Joe Duncan, Founder of Before5am

The first 90 minutes of the day belong to you and whatever happens during the day, happens but you’ve taken charge of your life and made progress on what’s truly important to you before anything else happens. That’s how you start to build the life you want while you live the life you’ve already created or fallen into for yourself.

You want change? This is the most basic and simple strategy of all and the easiest to implement into your life. In fact I’ve committed my life to helping people wake up earlier so they can make that change through my lifestyle brand Before5am. The concept is rather simple, wake up early and use that time to focus on you and your life, not anyone else’s. The rest of your day can be about everyone else, but the early hours in the morning are yours and you need to take advantage of that.

    I couldn’t agree more. This year I went from 530 to 415 wakeups and my life has changed dramatically. This distraction-free time is when I affirm my goals, meditate, and visualize my future as complete. I wish I would have started sooner but 29 years old is better than later…or never
