This morning I awoke on the early side of things (it was at least early for me) so that I could start studying. Not surprisingly, by noon I had been studying for a while.
It is now now quite 2:00 PM and I have already had the pleasure of putting in a few good hours of work.
The upside of this is that even if I do nothing for the rest of the day (which isn't my plan) I won't feel as though the day has been wasted. The even better aspect of this situation is that as it is only 2:00 I still have many productive hours left.
I think I need to more consistently get up and get to work early.
