4:45…the waterfall noise is replaced by beeping. Oh joy. 5:15…I have to give myself a pep talk to get into the water. 7:00…wishing I had an IV for coffee. Yup, I’m talking about 4:45 AM.

Admit it, as part of the over-achieving, multi-tasking generation, you have some semblance of a life plan. You may not have fleshed out the details or timelines, but you probably have an idea of some of the biggies you’d like to get accomplished (marriage, home ownership, pet, MBA, etc.).
