You know you should wake-up, but for some reason you just can’t get yourself to do it in that moment of sleepiness. If this is you, then you need to try this simple idea…
To wakeup without hitting the snooze button, try involving a third-party accountability partner.
For example, if you have a goal to write a book you may initially try to create a plan to wake up an hour early to write everyday. However, this won’t work. There is very good chance that you will hit the snooze button because when you do, no one else will know.
What you must do instead is make a commitment to submit your writing on deadline everyday to someone who agrees to call you out if you slack off. Someone you respect. Someone you would be embarrassed to disappoint. It could be a mentor, a proofreader, or even a spouse or friend.
You may even want to up the ante and agree to pay a penalty fee if you miss your deadline.
You could apply this same idea for waking up 1 hour earlier to almost anything. Working on a business plan, exercising, or even cleaning the house. Whatever. Mark my word, having a third-party accountability partner changes the game. It could possibly change your life too.
