Hi Matt. I have a problem of consistent productivity for 2 days straight. If today i'm productive like superman, tomorrow I'm not productive at all. I felt sleepy & not motivated. What can i do to fix this? any suggestions?

Waking up at 4am some days and 5am from Monday to Friday works pretty well for me. On weekends it depends on what I have planned or what I did the night before, but normally I wake up at 6 or 7am and go for a long run. It works differently for every person, depends on age, children, work, fitness, and a lot more things.

Perfect response to the “Why can’t you wake up early like the rest of us high performers?” for anyone who’s a night owl would be “Why can’t you find it within you to stay up late and keep working like the rest of us night grinders?”

god thank you .. I am crazily going mad with this experiment.. not 5 am but ive tried with 6 and the whole day is ruined.. tried for more than 15 days... I am able to wake up but still it doesn't seem to work out... crazy thing is that I can be awake till 1 but unable to stay productive after 10... any suggestions Matt?

I wake up at 5:00 a.m for the last decade of my life (I’m 20) in my country is really normal for people to do this, we call “late” 8:00 a.m. In my culture is normal but it’s really difficult when we are a night owl it’s awful you always tired and unproductive so agreed with you when you said that by waking a certain hour of the day that doesn’t not guarantee productivity. Everyone it’s different we should learn to listen to our selves more

As long as you get the right amount of sleep than it doesn't matter when you go to bed or get up. BTW alcohol is a depressant and it dehydrates you.

One of the first things I learned in the rehabilitation program I'm in for burnout is that nightowls that have work early in the morning and early birds who have night shifts for long periods of time are so likely to experience burnout that it's almost guaranteed to happen so paying attention to which one you are is incredibly important, you also might not stay a nightowl or an early bird your entire life, it can shift

I am a freelance programmer and generally worked at night. But from last 2/3 weeks I started to go to bed early[around 10-10:30PM] and wakeup at 4:00-4:30 AM.... Get more things done before 11 AM.... Waking up early is really working for me.

Great video. Matt, apart from the context, I feel all these habits and morning routine videos relating to being successfully suffer from a survivorship bias. Sure they worked for these billionaires, but there are an equal number of people if not more, for whom it didn't work. There aren't any videos on the latter. We watch these videos without trying to understand ourselves first. We see the same pattern in media which only showcases the successful companies and the "overnight" success of individuals.

Omg. I really needed this. Yesterday I decided to wake up at 6am thinking I was going to be all of sudden healthy and successful and productive. But I realized that maybe that isn't for me. Maybe I should making a different change. One I know is right for ME. And not just bc some successful person on YouTube did it😳

I had to do that for school... my mom had to start her work before me. She is a teacher. I had to wake up to get ready for school. No buses to my school came to my house so I had to go to my grandparents. This made me wake up super early every day for 6 months.

There are almost always exceptions to the rule.
The "almost" term makes an exception to the above rule.

I know for the past 1 to 1.5 years I got obsessed with self help books and developing myself. What I learned later was that not everything works for everyone. We must know a rule or an idea and then experiment.

Waking up at 5 AM alone does not give you superpowers.
If you wake up grouchy and do nothing about it, its counter intuitive, because without any habits, your brain has many different options and you have to choose when you're at your least awake state (decision fatigue in the morning is not a good start to the day)
But wake up at 5 AM exercising IMMEDIATELY, you will relieve all the morning cortisol you had instantly.
I'm really passionate about this because I've been reading the book "The 5 AM Club" by Robin Sharma and he has a formula "the 20/20/20 formula" that allows you to be In a peak mental state BEFORE doing work so you can actually maximise your productivity.
Everyone reading this, read that book. The actual models show up later in the book if you're impatient for the lessons (in that case, find Robin Sharma on YouTube). But read the book if you actually want waking up at 5 AM to work for you.

Fuck waking up at 5am. I have my own business. I will wake up whenever I want, work whenever I want, and make more money whenever I want. I don't need some MindBodyGreen blogger telling me to rise early when I feel like shit doing it.
