Why I Wake Up at 4:00 A.M.

Not to go to work, which starts at 6.
I get up at 4 in the morning to work on what I don’t have time to work on the rest of the day.
People are always saying, “I don’t have time to accomplish my dreams, or do what I want to do.” They’re saying this as they’re flopped in front of the TV mindlessly tuned in to The Bachelor or Game of Thrones.
“I hate my job,” people say as they sleep in as late as they can without being late to their day job.
I say, Get up at 4 (and earlier if the alarm hasn’t gone off yet and I’m awake). Freedom didn’t come freely or easily, so why should your independence, or your dream job, or your money?
I get up at 4 because I believe, with all my heart, that if I work hard enough and sacrifice enough sleep, that my dream job will come true. So I get up at 4 in the morning and write, and write, and write.
At least, at the end of the day, I can say, “I got to do what I wanted today.”
