Quote from: JARoss01 on January 03, 2020, 06:39:11 AMAfter failing om New Years day to wake up at 5 am, I have successfully accomplished changing my sleep pattern to awaken at 5am the last two days. I have set my meditation routine and morning notes the past two days. I have successfully plotted my swing trades. Now looking for a way to find a property to flip. Sam if you have any ideas on how I can be more successful in identifying real estate investment properties, please share with me.Thanks James
Quote from: J.R. on January 05, 2020, 05:15:38 AMI haven't been perfect at getting up at 5am. Nonetheless, it's gets easier and easier. Even on a couple days where I opted not to get up at 5am, I still woke up without an alarm around 5:00. So I'm clearly succeeding in changing my sleep patterns.So here's an interesting (at least to me) observation. I'm the type that likes to make a to-do list and then gets the satisfaction of checking those off the list. So by getting up at 5:00 (or at least more often than not) I have achieved a feeling of "being caught up."In the past, I always had too much to do. I thought that's what it feels like if I want to get more done. I've got work stuff, a long commute, rental properties, stock investing, all the family's personal finance, household maintenance items....the list never ends. I suspect most people experience something similar. Overloaded, a backlog of tasks, always having to prioritize what task to work on.By getting up earlier I'm knocking out a lot of the tasks. Personal finance stuff is caught up. Work stuff is mostly caught up. I've got a handle on the other to-do's.The result: By feeling caught up, I can sit back and really start doing some thinking. Really start thinking about what I'm doing, why I'm doing it and figure out what I want the future to look like.I'm starting to believe getting up earlier has the potential to be so much more than just getting a few extra tasks done.-JR
