Tonight I called home from my trip to Nashville and talked with my wife about her day. At 10:08 I looked at my phone and said, “I need to let you go. I’m getting up early tomorrow.”
My wife replied, “Ok, but you say that you’re getting up early every day and you don’t.”
She’s right. I set my alarm for 5:30 or 6am every night but rarely answer its call when it rings. I have been living as if my intentions mattered as much as my actions. Decisions aren’t actions, they intentions that we still haven’t delivered on.
Jon Acuff teaches that we need to hustle at 5am to reach our dreams. He’s right and I’m tired of intending to wake up early. I’m tired of lying to myself and falling for it every time.
I’ll be up at 5am tomorrow because I am a man of my word. Starting tomorrow. For now I’m a dreamer with great intentions. Tomorrow I deliver.
