Time – Getting Started

From my previous post I mentioned the need to add more hours to the day. I know what you’re thinking: “Yeah Mike, getting up earlier, that sounds wonderful… I’m getting way too much sleep these days”

I know, I know getting up early sucks. But Self Improvement is not going to come without sacrifices. In Team of Rivals, Doris Kearns Goodwin talks about how Abraham Lincoln, and all of his rivals, took to heart Benjamin Franklin’s theme of continuous self-improvement. Lincoln would rise early and work late so as to acquire the knowledge that he missed by not having the formal education of his rivals. He did this through most of his adult life.

You are going to have be like Honest Abe if you want to get serious about learning a new skill (i.e. self improvement). Here is some information to get you started. Tim Ferriss wrote/excerpted an excellent post from Leo Babuta regarding changing your habits.

Getting started is the key. Start small to make getting started easier
