The Fastest Way to Improve Your Life

By Craig Ballantyne

Recently I suggested to members of my Facebook page to get up 15 minutes earlier each day to take advantage of the magic time. This is a point in the day where your mind's creativity and lack of external disruptions combine to allow you to get more done than you could at any other time of the day.

Many people supported it, a few offered excuses, and others were befuddled by how they could accomplish this based on their difficulty of getting out of bed as it was already.

Telling people to set their alarm clock fifteen minutes earlier and go to bed fifteen minutes earlier is not going to work. But neither are there any secrets for getting up fifteen minutes earlier each day. What I needed was a better answer, one that almost everyone could apply to help this habit, and the solution came to me during another my workout (which is also another magic time of day for creativity).

While I was lifting weights and thinking about the difficulty many readers had in getting up early, my between-set attention turned to a girl on the treadmill. She had only been in the gym for what seemed to be 10 minutes, but she was already giving up on her workout, stepping off the treadmill and getting ready to leave.

That's when it hit me.
