Getting up in the morning, for me, often means chaining my ankles with a stout chain to something big and yellow with big tires and shouting "Pull!"... I sleep merrily along with a 2.5 year old daughter wreaking havoc in my bed (waking up Mummie).
Alarm clock? Just hit the snooze button a few times till it's an hour later or so...
Until I read an email by Ricky Spears (now available on his blog). My solution variant: putting a nice book on top of my alarm clock and start reading that once the alarm clock goes. That's an enjoyable activity and something I'll do guaranteed! I admit that I did it for the first time this morning, but with instant success. Yeah, this seems to work OK.
