I have been trying to get up early at 6am daily since Jan01,2014. It is one of my New Year resolutions…and has been since a decade. But I end up waking at any time after 6am.
6am -> “Oh I should get up, just 15 mins more, no harm done” so me and my phone are both on SNOOZE
6.15am -> “Oh Gods, 15 mins over … really…. 15 mins more” SNOOZE
6:30am -> “What do I have to do getting up so early, the day would be too long” but because of some weird feeling, hit SNOOZE
6:45am-> “OK tomorrow” STOP
Whenever I get up, say 9am -> “I should have made a little more effort” J
This daily drill got me into thinking -> ‘Is Learning tough or is Unlearning tough”
In the above case both seem to be tough, not able to tell my mind to unlearn to get up at 9am and at the same time make it to learn to get up at 6am.
To ‘unlearn’ a habit or a thought process – What is it that is required?
How do you get disciplined?
–By making it(the goal) a HABIT.
How do you make it a habit?
Where you need commitment and discipline to learn new things, you need more commitment and more discipline to unlearn the existing things, because it has been with us for quite some time and the mind finds all the excuses it can to resist that change. Yeah for now let’s blame it on the mind!!!
And I will try to be more committed to my cause of unlearning – to get up at 9am, as that might speed up the process of learning – waking up at 6.
