Deciding to be Deliberate with Discipline

Lately, I have been frustrated with my lack of discipline in just about all areas of taking care of myself. Even though the desire is there, I have been too busy (work, the kids, etc), too tired, or too distracted to accomplish certain tasks - primarily exercise, spending time with God, and getting enough sleep.

For most of my adult life I have been fairly self-motivated. But at this stage now, I think the only way I am going to get these things done is to be much more deliberate with my time. So for the first time ever, I'm going to try to set an actual dedicated schedule for myself, which will be as follows:

Go to bed at 11:00 pm.

Get up at 6:00 am.

Go downstairs, start the coffee, spend some time with God (reading Bible, praying, etc.)

Get ready for work, leave by 7:30 am, get there by 8:00 am.

Since my company uses the 9/80 schedule, I'll work until 6:00 pm, then get home by 6:30 pm. NOTE: Working a little extra on some days will compensate for the days that I exercise.

Alright man, let me know what the secret is when you figure this one out. I myself have the same issues, but I have never been particularly motivated. I am simply lazy for the most part. I do enough to keep things moving, and at times can get thhe big task done, but I leave off things like exercise, time with the lord, and things that really are super important, but the easiest to ignore
