Rule number 1 = There is no short-cut to success.
The sooner you realise this, the sooner you can start walking on the right path. We read this post about 24 hrs with Tom Ford a couple months ago and decided to take up the challenge. We have been doing this for about a month now and how does it feel? freaking great!!
Best believe, it is tough when you start but it is very very worth it. Obviously there is no glamour of an “iced expresso” or soaking in the tub for us, (Nigeria won’t even give you hot water sometimes) but we have tried to follow it as best we can and feel those are the perks you get when you have been doing it for a while and achieve success.
If you really stop and think about this, the commodity of wealthy 1% is time and by simply waking up earlier than everyone else they are able to secure more of it.
For example: If you woke up at 4:30, and everyone else woke up at 7:30 you are getting approximately 3hrs extra a day. Doing this 5 days a week means you will have created 15 extra hours a week. How do you compete with people that get an extra 15 hours a week?….honestly you can’t.
Truth is we still haven’t reached our goal of waking up at 4:30. We seem to be stuck at 4:45 but will be moving our wake up time back by 5mins every day till we reach our goal. Also waking up really early means you have to be very disciplined about your bedtime. We aim to get to bed by 10pm so we can secure a healthy 6.5 hours of sleep.

So do you still want to be successful? are you ready to stop wishing and do something about it? Are you ready to take up the challenge? If yes, Send us a comment saying “Challenge Accepted” and we’ll be encourage to post more stuff for people like you!
Good luck guys!
