The early bird gets the worm. You can get a lot done early before most people wake up. While others are crawling out of bed, you can be on the road to adventure. This applies to life, not just a conference.
PS. 08.04 Thursday Leave @ 730am for Two Medicine…no dining available so we drove to East Glacier and the Glacier Park Lodge but they stopped breakfast at 10am and no lunch until 1130am, so we took Hwy 2 to Apgar and ate at Eddie’s, shopped. Hiked Hidden Lake trail. Dinner at Logan Pass of chips & salsa and cheese & crackers. Bear hunting at Two Dog Flats and saw about 30 elk at 815pm. Desserts at Rising Sun.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
The rhythm of a regular bedtime is the foundation of self-discipline. What time we went to bed last night directly impacts how we felt waking up this morning.
And how we wake up drives how our morning goes, and our morning impacts the rest of the day. This is so painfully obvious that it’s almost embarrassing to write about.
Trust me, i’m fully aware of life’s unpredictability. But we can’t use fear (reality) of the “unexpected” to give us permission to not stay focused, and control what we can control. And we can control when we go to bed.
Saying we can’t is lying, in my opinion.
Imagine going to bed at relatively the same time for 2,557 days (nearly seven years) – how would that change things?
PS. Trust me, sometimes the only way i can get all the work done is to sacrifice sleep. The point here is that there are exceptions to every rule. And that we should never allow our occasional exceptions to become the standard.
