Why do you even wake up @5AM? Early mornings for me used to be : A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep. B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.) C. Trips to the hospital. So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun. What my early mornings are now? I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;)) But why?! As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros: A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies. B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.” C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;) When not to get up early? PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no. That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early. As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm. Thanks for your time❤️

@Rūta Simanaitytė It depends. If I rise @5AM I’ll be in bed my 9PM. If I decide to wake up @4AM , I’m going to be in bed by 8PM. Basicaly I need 8 hours of sleep, so just count it up. Once I was waking up at 3:30AM, so yea, I would go to bet at 7:30PM. Sounds stupid, but it’s awesome. Trust me ;)

Jurgis Terleckas thanks for sharing! Do you aim going to sleep same hour everyday or just count 8h of sleep? For myself - falling asleep similar hour makes me wake up easier.

@Mangirdas Adomaitis , as much as I have researched, it’s the best to go to sleep and wake up at the SAME TIME everyday, however life hits us and sometimes we aren’t capable of going to sleep early for example, then I sacrifice my early morning for 8 hours. However, during winter no matter what, I would try to wake up at the same time everyday, as I result - I would feel tired as hell in the evening and fall asleep in seconds. But, I guess you need to test both ways and see what’s works 4 you.

From what I know, the best outcomes boil down to consistency. So the more consistently you go to sleep, eat, exercise, work, etc, the less stress you experience and the healthier you stay in the long run.

Good morning qooriors! First-principles thinking is one of the best ways to reverse-engineer complicated problems and unleash creative possibility. Sometimes called “reasoning from first principles,” the idea is to break down complicated problems into basic elements and then reassemble them from the ground up. It’s one of the best ways to learn to think for yourself, unlock your creative potential, and move from linear to non-linear results. This approach was used by the philosopher Aristotle and is used now by Elon Musk and Charlie Munger. It allows them to cut through the fog of shoddy reasoning and inadequate analogies to see opportunities that others miss. Musk gives a fascinating example about battery packs: … they would say, “historically, it costs $600 per kilowatt-hour. And so it’s not going to be much better than that in the future. … So the first principles would be, … what are the material constituents of the batteries? What is the spot market value of the material constituents? … It’s got cobalt, nickel, aluminum, carbon, and some polymers for separation, and a steel can. So break that down on a material basis; if we bought that on a London Metal Exchange, what would each of these things cost? Oh, jeez, it’s … $80 per kilowatt-hour. So, clearly, you just need to think of clever ways to take those materials and combine them into the shape of a battery cell, and you can have batteries that are much, much cheaper than anyone realizes. Learn how to think from the first-principles in this article I read this morning: https://fs.blog/2018/04/first-principles/
