• #Earlyfor30 – Day 23

      #Earlyfor30 – Day 23 By Dennis Seymour · April 23, 2017 Woke up around 4am but I continued to sleep. Why? I told myself that I needed this weekend to recharge before the busy week ahead. I’m expecting it to be the most tiring week of my life, embarking to a new place, new dialect and new culture to try and “sell” our services to more possible users. It’s also ...

    • #Earlyfor30 – Day 22

      #Earlyfor30 – Day 22 By Dennis Seymour · April 22, 2017 Yesterday was the 4th straight highly productive day and I got to bed around 1am because of a last meeting. I think it took a toll on my body. I wasn’t able to wake up early at all. I woke up from time to time throughout the night but I guess deep sleep hit me after 3am and not even the alarms could wake me up or my ...

      #Earlyfor30 – Day 8 By Dennis Seymour · April 8, 2017 It’s been a week for this challenge. So far, so good. Let’s see how this second week goes. Now, here’s the thing. I’m in a remote part of the country with no signal. I am not even sure I can publish this today. Side note, people are starting to mock me for what I’m doing. People think it’s stupid because they tell me so.

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 30 By Dennis Seymour · April 30, 2017 It’s finally here. The last day! Did I wake up? I really learned a lot about myself the past 30 days. This challenge has been exhausting, especially since my daughter couldn’t sleep early even with adjustments. The wife tried her best to keep distractions to a minimal and hit…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 29 By Dennis Seymour · April 29, 2017 It’s almost the last day of the challenge and I’d like to finish strong. It’s been just as I expected when I first started this challenge. This month was going to be grueling with all the events, holidays and travel needed. It tested my will and how I learned a lot on how I can manage…

    … Tired from a long trip (Over 8 hours) – Check Today is a holiday because of that ASEAN thingy – Check Too tired to move and slept at 11pm (No planning for the next day) – Check Those 3 alone spell disaster for somebody that’s going to wake up early. LOL. Thankfully, my body has gotten used to it and sleeping at 11 works already. It’s…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 26 By Dennis Seymour · April 26, 2017 After meetings, conferences and finally meeting those I’ve conversed with online, I was drained. Dinner ar 10pm and I was sleeping around 1am. Woke up around 4 am, the usual time, but I guess I just decided to add an extra hour to make use of this hotel roo, that was barely used in my…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 25 By Dennis Seymour · April 25, 2017 After a busy day of almost 20k steps, up and down hospitals, strategizing where to go and who I need to be talking to, I was drained. The lesson: pace yourself. With entrepreneurship, it’s a long fight, so you need to be in condition to make the right decisions. It’s 4am and it’s time…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 24 By Dennis Seymour · April 24, 2017 It’s almost the end of the challenge and I’ve definitely discovered a lot more about myself. This is another special-case week as it’s the start of a major and busy week. I’ll be flying to another city in a bit with new everything for me. Once I land, it’s all hustle from there. Hopefully, my body can function well and I can still keep to the schedule. Just a really short post today, gonna go catch my uBer now. Related …

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 21 By Dennis Seymour · April 21, 2017 My stubborn ass just wouldn’t give up. I slept at 2am this time trying to grind what I could before today’s big tasks and before I have my trip on Monday next week for a conference. I made it! 4:30! I had to drag my butt off the bed though. I can’t see myself lasting long enough…

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 20

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 20 By Dennis Seymour · April 20, 2017 I had a very productive day yesterday. Hit around 18 Pomodoros out the park. So, the dumbass that I am, decided to give it one more try. Just like yesterday, I failed miserably. I slept around 1am as I grinded out as much as I could since I was on a role. I felt like it was the right…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 19 By Dennis Seymour · April 19, 2017 Ok…yesterday was awesome. I got to 18 Pomodoros and finished some really tedious tasks. So, I tried to push it. I tried this last time and failed but I decided to try again and push myself to my limits and see what happens. I slept at 1am… Bam. Another fail. I thought I could handle…

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 18

    … So, the alarm didn’t go off. I have to figure out why iOS does this sometimes. I think it locks itself when it’s low power mode. So I woke up around 4:48 with no alarm. After I unlocked it, it started to ring properly. WTF iOS. Yesterday was tiring mentally and physically. I had to churn out at least 11 Pomodoros in the morning alone as I…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 17 By Dennis Seymour · April 17, 2017 17 days in and a week of “holidays” is now done. Nothing is more unproductive than holidays because it messes with your routine. I had a hard time waking up in the morning as I had to convince myself to get back to work. Even with all the things I’ve laid out the night before…

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 16

    … It’s past the halfway mark now. They say it takes over 21 days to acquire a new habit, so I guess I’m almost there. Progress update: Scheduling is a must even if you wake up early, you won’t get much done if you don’t prioritize Review before going to sleep as it helps your mind get started once that alarm rings, well, unless you’re…

    … #Earlyfor30 – Day 14 By Dennis Seymour · April 14, 2017 As I expected, combining a birthday and a holiday was gonna be unproductive. Good thing I woke up early yesterday to finish what I aimed for. For days like that, you’ll be pulled away from what you’re doing and if you have kids, you’ll feel guilty as well. You better plan ahead…
