As I understand it
Successful people don’t use alarm clocks.
If you’re made of grit and ambition
The universe wakes you up
At 4:00 am
To begin your important work.
The universe doesn’t wake me up.
I’m doing it wrong.
The universe knows I want to sleep in.
The drive home, making dinner, and getting kids to bed
All took longer than expected.
Now I’m winding down at 11:00, willing myself up past midnight,
Hoping to be a little better and a bit more free.
I know the universe is watching.
Maybe judging … maybe not
After all, it did give me alarm clocks.
