One of the important traits of highly successful persons is their ability to maximize the early hours of the day.
While many today complain of having too little time to pray and study the Word because of their busy schedule, the example of Jesus from our opening text gives us a hint on how that challenge can be resolved. He utilized his morning to fellowship with God.
You too can take advantage of the serenity of the morning to meditate on the Word, and attend to tasks that require utmost focus. Waking up before everyone else does also gives you extra time to attend to important tasks that may be difficult to handle when the hustle and bustle of the day begins.
However, maximizing your morning may require that you retire to bed earlier than you are used to. Ultimately, you would realize that it is more rewarding to start the day early with a fresh mind and outlook, than to stay up late trying frantically to complete your tasks.
Therefore, set a new time for you to get up each day, and determine ahead of time what your first activities for each day will be. As you maximize your morning this way, you will greatly enhance your productivity and improve your quality of life.
