I realize how precious the time I have on this earth. In an effort to make the most out of
every day, I have been getting up an hour early. It does double duty for me. I get on my stationary bike,
ride and pray and sometimes sing too. Afterward, I stretch and then make a plans for the day.
You must do what works best for you. I admonish you to seize the day literally. Make a habit to pick a time,
early or late to spend time alone thanking your God, mediating on the Word, and developing a strategy for the day.
I read an article on how sleep patterns relate to your performance during the day
(http://www.suite101.com/content/what-a-persons-sleeping-habits-say-about-them-a201209). It basically said that
sleep patterns are based on your DNA. So you are naturally an early riser or a night owl. Given this information,
it would be wise to choose a career which utilizes your strengths--no matter what your sleep habits are. You can look at
it from the perspective that both types of people have the opportunity to utilize the wee hours of the morning. During a
career transition period it may seem odd to still rise early or stay up late. However, I admonish you to find a quiet
time and place, when most of your household is asleep and the television is off, to develop your strategies for your career.
Use this quiet time to pray and ask God for His plans for your life. You possess an advantage by meditating on his promises for yourcareer and life. Find a scripture that you can say to yourself when things are not going according to the way you have planned. You can also use that time to reflect on your career and what you could do to prepare for your future positions.
The Bible speaks about the disadvantages of sleeping late in Proverbs 6:10-11. It also speaks of instructions from God in the
night seasons Psalm 16:7. EARLY and LATE is based on how your internal clock works.
