Since I have to wake up so often sleep deprived, I must have used every trick in the book to perk myself up.
Tip #2: Have someone call you, or wake someone else up.
Let’s admit it, most of us are lousy on being accountable to ourselves. We always forget to do what we said we would do. We procrastinate and avoid things if we can. However, if you are accountable to someone else, somehow we are more compelled to follow through.
So have a friend call you and remind you to wake up. Try it, you’ll find it harder to say no.
Better yet, if you are the one waking someone up, you feel more personal responsibility to get up yourself.
