I'm a little late to the party here, but I decided to start getting up like 2 hours earlier this week to fit in some extra read time in and so far, I am loving it! My mornings are great for studying since the kiddos aren't up yet!
I've also started using a technique that I just read about this week called pomodoro.
I've set goals in Google Calendar and started implementing this to help keep me accountable!
I do 30 minute blocks for:
Book Reading (I'm looking to read 6 books this year) Currently reading Marriage God's Way by Scott LaPierre
reading email, responding to comments, and catching up on social media notifications
So far, doing this has allowed me to get more work done in the morning before the girls get up so that I can spend more focused time with them once they get up!
So @DerekOlsen thanks for the challenge!
