    Hello BHW members, I paid $21.00 dollars to the website 21habit.com so you know $h1t just got real. Such website will take my money if you I don't do my habit everyday for 21 days, nice motivation to start.

    [​IMG]

    After I failed doing my journal in the past I learned a few things about my experience. You can take a look here: 30-Day Trial: Wake up At 4:30 A.M.

    1. You need to have a reason to wake up.
    2. I can't enjoy eating so early but water is alright.
    3. Your first thought would be "I feel so tired, my body can't do this today let's have some rest".
    4. 4:30 A.M. kills me, 5:00 A.M. do not.
    5. Stretching routine helps you a lot.
    6. Podcast distracts me, even music. Instrumental music is alright.
    7. Work for a personal project or something you can earn money instantly. I used to write for some blogs earning $8 USD for 1 hour of work. I was earning $40 USD each week just for waking up early everyday, nice feeling.
    8. Do not read forums, 9gag, Facebook, cat videos and more stuff like that. "Oh my god, 6:30 already?".
    9. Dress/shower early. Increase your self-esteem, your Pokemon pijamas are not that serious when doing IM.
    10. Be thankful for the opportunity.

    Why I'm doing this?
    I'm getting lazy since I have 8 hours of work almost everyday at the office. I am a freelance internet marketer (I'm not an employee) working with 2 clients which combined give me 40 hours of work per week. I don't feel good by waking up at 6:30 A.M. it makes me think "Are you that lazy men? What's wrong with you? You have better things to do bro c'mon!" Even if I do nothing productive in the morning I feel better trough the day.

    Schedule:
    I spend 30 minutes to get ready for work, I start doing so at 6:50 A.M. so by 7:25 A.M. I start the car engine. This routine was dominated almost instantly. This is what I do:
    - Shower 7 minutes: No shampoo, no soap, just stretching and listening a funny podcast to boost my mood.
    - Dress 10 minutes: Dressing up, putting gel on my hair, facial lotion, brush teeth, contact lenses, cleaning shoes and extra time to do my bed.
    - 10 minutes: Taking my computer, make lunch for work, getting phone, wallet and miscellaneous stuff.

    I will:
    Wake up 5:00 A.M. jump from bed, think positive and do 20 minutes stretching routine (no workout) for 21 days.
    Work for my IM projects for 1.30 hours.

    Starting tomorrow 2/16/2015

    Thank you all

    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.

    Being self employed, I fell into the late night trap, working all night, staying up until 7 am and waking up at 3pm. It sucked, I now wake up at 8am to start my work, I get so much more done.

    i wasn't aware that this kind of site exist at all, pretty good idea of the site owner, however shouldn't you have to pay a couple grand at least, just to make sure to wake up early :p

    It takes $1.00 dollar for each day you don't check in or fail to do your commitment (the money goes to a charity of your choice). Obviously you can cheat and say you did it so you can keep your money but you are just fooling yourself. The website also gets $0.93 as "transaction fee" a.k.a service fee, so the total is $21.93.

    I committed my self to wake up each day at 4 AM after like 5 hours of sleep.

    The only way you are going to do something like this is if you have a HUGE why, mine is. 21 $ imo are not but maybe it works for you.

    I get up at 4 AM EVERY DAY, I go working out in my garage for at least 1 hour, sometimes 90 minutes. Then I dress and eat for success. Then it's still early and most people are still sleeping so I read something I can learn from or can give me some ideas. Then work.

    It's an Amazing feeling.

    Day-1: Success.

    5:20 A.M. right now, woke up at 5:00 A.M. I started feeling like a human been after 9 minutes of stretching while in bed (dangerous). Better brain stage than waking up at 4:30 A.M. I think because the sleep cycle,you can read about that here sleepyti.me

    good for you OP

    Not sure if people know or not, but the 21 days no. is not just a random number, I read somewhere that if we do something for 21 days stratight without missing a day then it becomes a habit of ours.

    Can you setup the site that you have to check up before 5 am or so ? Would make you either wake up on time or being up all night.

    Nice thread.
    The 21 days habit thing is 100% true.
    Your plan sounds good and I too and stuck in a routine go to work for 8 hours everyday schedule.

    Day-3: Success. I woke up naturally at 4:52 A.M. I'm taking like 15 minutes to realize I have to get up from bed but it will get better with the time.

    No, you can't unfortunately.

    I will get my $21 dollars back and I can start a new habit.
