Oh So Early

Through my bleary eyes, it appears that I'm writing this post at around 5:00am. Even for an early riser like myself, that's a little brutal. But there's an important lesson here.

Do you have any friends who complain that there's just not enough time in the day to get everything done? I know that I do.

Here's what I want you to do the next time they tell you that. Take their iPhone from their hands and check their alarm. See what time it's going to wake them.

That'll answer your question, I bet.

Because there's plenty of time to get stuff done at 5:00am. There's absolutely nothing else to do. The internet is boring this early. Your friends and loved ones are quiet because no one sane is up at this hour.

But do you know what the real secret is? Lean in close, I'll tell you.

If you want to do something really great, if you think you could make the world better in even the slightest way, you're going to have to be a little bit insane anyway.
