Regular Sleep Schedule Is Not for Everyone

One piece of advice that consistently shows up in entrepreneurial courses and blogs is the idea of adhering to a strict sleep schedule. They often suggest going to bed early and waking up at 5 or 6 a.m., dedicating the early hours to focused work. But when it comes to my reality, this just doesn’t cut it. As much as I’d love to utilize those quiet morning hours for productivity, it simply isn’t feasible.

You see, when I wake up that early, my day is already filled with activities, starting with family responsibilities. My kid, Mike, tends to wake up around the same time I do, and the house quickly becomes a hub of activity. He’s always buzzing around, asking for help with this and that, making it nearly impossible to dedicate any uninterrupted time for work.

We could theoretically have my wife, Alena, take over some of Mike’s morning needs, but that’s not really what I want, and it wouldn’t be fair to place all that on her shoulders. Balancing family and work is already a tightrope walk, and adding more complexity wouldn’t help. It’s crucial to understand that while certain tips and routines might be game-changers for some, they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Adapting advice to fit your unique situation is key.
