Seize the Hour (Wake Up to Yourself)

Posted on

Who do you wake up with in the morning? Someone you love or someone you loathe?

I don’t mean to pry but rather to posit a proposition: that the company you keep in your first waking hour sets your self for the rest of the day.

And I’m not talking about your bed buddy here – I’m referring to the version of yourself you choose to wake up with.

Stop looking at me like that!

Say you want to be a writer. Be your writing self in your first hour of wakefulness and you’ll feel like a writer for the rest of the day – that’s my assertion.

It’s nothing new. Back in 1886, the English preacher Charles Spurgeon wrote: ‘Begin as you mean to go on.’

I’ve been doing so for weeks and it works.

So why not wake up to yourself and seize the hour?
