Tip #38. Get a Mentor

This is another “universal” tip that can help you in many situations when you need to learn a new skill or get a new habit, and it may come to use if you want to learn how to wake up early. Think of someone among your friends, relatives or just people you know who wakes up early. Talk to them, ask them how they acquired this habit, what challenges they faced and how they overcame them, what tools and techniques they use now or used in the past to develop early rising habit. You can even ask to borrow their alarm clock :)

The mentor can help you not just giving advices or sharing his life experience. He or she might be the person whom you can ask to wake up you early. He might be the person who can give you fresh ideas on how to spend your morning time productively and what to include into your morning routine. He might be the person whom you will start copying – by adjusting your schedule and your lifestyle to his habits and lifestyle, and even copying ordinary habits like what foods does he take, how he spends free time or what books he reads. Pay special attention to his morning and evening routines. If one person can learn and train to wake up early, you can do it too. If it’s a live person that you know and whom you can talk to – your chances to learn the same things by getting help and guidance from that person will grow significantly. In any situation, try to build up on what other people already know. It’s a major time saver. Building up on your own experiments and mistakes sometimes can be fun, but if your goal is productivity and efficiency – do not negate this tip.
