Getting Things Done

Starting the day

I don’t get up at same time every day. I get up roughly two and a half hours before I need to start my day. Once it starts, I can’t control it. So if I have to catch a plane at 10am, I’ll be up 2.5 hours before I need to leave at the airport. If 7:30am is when my day has to start then I will get up around 5am no matter where in the world I am.
