Recently, I’ve been waking up before dawn to get in some quality work hours before the rest of the world wakes up. I consider this “clean time” since the distractions and noise have not yet started. But what is disappointing is that I haven’t always been particularly productive or creative in these early morning hours. When the slate is wiped clean, genius doesn’t naturally appear. So these hours have become the waiting hours for greatness. I believe that great ideas are born in the quiet with stillness and focus. These are the valuable quiet hours that lead to miracles, one way or another!
