“Up Before The Enemy.”

Jocko Wilink often talks about ‘getting up before the enemy’, meaning, early in the morning. Like 4:30 in the morning.

Of course, Jocko is a former Navy SEAL officer who served in active combat.

My enemies aren’t plotting to advance on my home, enter at gunpoint, and kill me.

But I do have enemies, and I do get up before them.

My enemies are:

  • Other people’s agendas
  • Laziness and procrastination
  • Feeling squeezed by competing commitments and time pressures
  • Not getting my workouts & meditation in
  • Having to rush cooking or make poor food choices
  • Emails

There may be a few more, but, you get the point.

I get up before they do so that I can take care of what I need to take care of, before any of them gain ground.
