4:30 for 30 Challenge! Will I be successful, or just die?!
4:30 for 30:
What up Nerds! Feels like it's been a minute since I spoke with ya (sorry about that), but life has been quite hectic as of late. The good news, is I'm back! Not only am I back, but with a challenge so ridiculous, it may actually kill me (not really, but I need dramatic effect).
Wandering my way through my late 20's has set me on a path of purpose. What is my purpose?Fuck if I know, but this leads me to my next point. As with most of us, I've been trying to find my way in life and figure out exactly what the fuck I'm here for (other than being amazing). With this mindset I find myself watching, listening, and reading about very successful people who have changed the world (mainly for good...Sorry Trump). Throughout my hundreds of hours learning about successful people and how they got there I have found one common theme. These assholes all get up early as hell and get on the grind. Everyone from Elon Musk to Arianna Huffington (yes, she founded the Huffington Post) to Terry Crews all claim to sleep around 6 hours a night and get up around 4:30AM.
4:30AM changed my life! -Cheeseburger Mac
4:30AM is a very specific, but recurring time these people claim to get up at every. single. morning. Sounds insane, right? Well, my curiosity has gotten the best of me and I want to know if this really leads to more productivity, stronger mindset, and over all a better life, or is it just bullshit? This is what led to me creating the 4:30 for 30 Challenge.
Disclaimer: There are a lot of outside variables such as schedule, finances, family, etc, so the results may not be the same for everyone.
OK, so my idea is for 30 days I will be getting my ass out of bed at 4:30AM every morning, Monday through Friday (if I don't get free rein on the weekends I will die). I really want to see what happens. I don't necessarily have any specifics, but I do want to track overall productivity, healthiness (really just how I feel), and accomplishments.
To be completely honest, I think the first week will make me wish for death, but after that I think I'll see some changes. I really enjoy working out before work, so now I'll have time for that (I usually get up around 7:30AM). Also, I will have a lot of spare time in the mornings and afternoons, so I imagine I will fill that time with Programming, Twitch Streaming, Videos, etc.
I'm really hoping I get a lot out of this challenge and become a little less of a procrastinator, and more of a do-er. I guess we will see...
WANT TO WATCH?:
I will be sending out a VLOG every morning and every evening via Snapchat/Instagram, so when you all get up four hours after me, you can watch me suffer.
Make sure to add us on Snapchat @superhappynerd.
May God have mercy on me.
