Here’s a riddle: In what job do you get fired as soon as you get hired? The answer- A human cannonball.
In my new book “Morning Momentum” I give a whole chapter to developing a strategy for getting the first minute of your day right. I titled that chapter, “How to shoot out of bed like a human cannonball.” I know that’s a bit overdramatic, but I needed a way to vividly emphasize the importance of getting the first minute of each day right.
God gives you 1440 minutes every day and the most important is the very first. That’s because it often sets the tone for the following 1439. When you wake up like a human cannonball, you unleash a pattern of energy and enthusiasm for the day. You take charge and establish control instead of allowing the day to control you.
When your alarm goes off tomorrow morning, I challenge you to seize the moment and speak a word of praise to the Lord as you launch into a day of redeeming the time.
