So, here's the thing about waking up early. If I have to do it, if I have a event that
I have to get to, then I can easily get myself out of bed at 3:00 AM if it's a early flight
or 6:00 AM if I have to get to work by 7:00. If I'm left with my own devices, getting up
early is only going to happen if I'm forced to do it. If I have to be somewhere at a certainly.
Maybe you're just like me in that respect and maybe you also want to be able to get
yourself up in the morning before you have to be somewhere so you actually have time
to do something like eat breakfast or maybe workout or even just to read a book.
I definitely wanted that for myself so in this video I'm going to show you a technique
that I've been using that 100%, absolutely gets me up at 6:00 AM every single morning
during the week. Completely crazy, you say? Well it's been working for 6 months. Here
it is. The basis of my system uses an app called buffer, which is a social media scheduler
and I have a tweet setup in buffer that goes to my Twitter account which basically says,
"Hey, I'm sleeping in because I'm lazy. If you reply to this tweet I will give you $5
via PayPal, assuming that my alarm did not malfunction."
The tweet is scheduled for 6:10 AM so I have to get up every morning before that goes out,
get over to my computer and set it go out the next day instead of today. I also have
the hashtag #sleepingin on that tweet and I'm using an app called IFTTT to watch for
tweets that have that hashtag from my account. If it sees a tweet a like that, then it will
send an email over to Beeminder, which is a service that I've talked about before, which
tracks your goals and actually charges you money if you fail on them. If I sleep in,
I will guaranteed to be charged 5 bucks from Beeminder and also be charged $5 from anyone
who sees my tweet and wants me to pay them. An added incentive that comes from offering
to pay people if they reply to me is that there's a threat of social shame and embarrassment
if I have to do it. I'm essentially using the threats of both monetary loss and social
shame to force myself to get up every morning and I've been doing this for about 6 months
now. 100 percent of the time that I've set up the tweet, I have gotten up on time. Only
one time did I actually forget to move the tweet. I probably got distracted by my email
or something and I did pay $5 to the person who responded.
Since then, I have always remembered to move my tweet forward. I have a reminder setup
and HabitRPG to do it. Every single morning I'm up on time doing my morning routine. If
you're looking for a method that will actually make you get up in the morning without having
to rely on an actual obligation, try my method out. I just have one warning that I'll give
you before you actually start using it. You have to be 100 percent honest when you use
this method. Because if you let the tweet go out and then lie about it later, you're
essentially breaking the method for all future instances.
If you know that you've broken it in the past, then you're probably going to break it again
in the future. If you try to adopt this method, realize that it's a nuclear option for getting
yourself up and respect its power. If you want to know more about how I use this method,
I actually wrote a blog post about it over at College Info Geek with a little bit more
detail and this video serves as a bit of an update to let you know that, yes it's been
working for about 6 months now. Check that post out. If you want to get more
