The past couple of weeks have been crazy. Looking back at them I don’t know if I should describe them as chaotically busy or chaotically slow. Either way, my Husband and I have moved back to Texas, unpacked, continued applying for jobs, began the first steps to becoming covenant members at the Village Church together, began running more regularly, continued working on my book, and so much more. While our days feel busy, I don’t feel as though we get a lot accomplished. The hours seem to disappear.
But during some of those hours I have begun reading Jon Acuff’s book “Start.” (My Husband and I began following Acuff when we went through Financial peace University together and really enjoy his style of writing. His book “Gazelles, Baby Steps, & 37 Other Things Dave Ramsey Taught Me” is on my list of ‘Must Reads.’ His book “Quitter” is on my ‘Want to Read Soon‘ list and is already downloaded to my kindle. My mom even got to spend a weekend with Acuff & Ramsey in Nashville about a year ago- yes, I was jealous.) In his book he encourages the reader to wake up 30 minutes earlier to be productive. He states that the “first 30 minutes of your day are vital. Rescue them & spend it all on awesome.” Acuff wrote a great blog about why the first 30 minutes of your day are vital that I highly encourage you to go read. After a beautiful evening of reading and feeling inspired I decided that tomorrow I am going to set my alarm 30 minutes earlier and spend that time being awesome. I will start by spending time in the Word, then I will make a list of things I am thankful for (thank you One Thousand Gifts for inspiring this), and continue by being awesome.
Imagine what you could do if you woke up 30 minutes earlier every day.
How would you be awesome during those 30 minutes?
What would your 30 minutes look like?
I would love to hear how your 30 minutes of being awesome goes tomorrow!
Please come back and share!
