The 5 AM Club: Book Review

Do you feel trouble getting up in the morning? You must have tried many ways with which you push yourself to wake up every day and yet remain short of the finish line. Maybe you can do it for 3-4 days but then again, go back to your old regime. The incredible book 5 AM Club by Robin Sharma is here to solve your problems.

The main message of the 5 AM Club is to allow the readers to modify various elements in their daily schedule that increase the chances of waking up in the morning and improve their lifestyle. The book targets the dos and don’t before sleeping and provides scientific explanations for the same. I sincerely respect the author, who has provided all the scientific details necessary. I feel it is a great plus for the book, especially how the facts get built into a story for a more comfortable explanation to the readers.
There are many recommendations in the 5 AM Club that you can adopt during your active hours, and I sincerely feel it will help you amplify your results. There are tips on improving health, having a perfect morning routine, devoting time to contemplating the future, and many more. I personally have begun using some of them. They are not strenuous activities, but they are challenging to maintain. One such is the habit of writing a journal every day.

There is a detailed explanation of the benefits of writing a journal, and indeed it is advantageous, but it will take time to get into this habit. Such struggles will be more evident when you read the whole book and find other suggestions. They will be helpful but are definitely challenging, and maybe that is the cost of self-improvement.

The book is a great guide for self education. The author has promoted a habit of in-depth learning along with the importance of giving attention to detail. It is a wonderful book designed to raise your standards.

There are some shortcomings of this book too, but they are not powerful enough to reduce 5 AM Club’s value. One of them is the time it takes to build up the plot. There is chapter after chapter till you find the good stuff. It was brought to my notice by some of my peers to whom I suggested this book, and after some rational thinking, I realized it to be true.
Sometimes there is too much story; and not enough knowledge between the chapters, which also sucks the juice often.

I would prefer to add a disclaimer before ending this book. When you pick up 5 AM Club, read it with an open mind. Many of my peers have not liked the book, which is fine.
Every book will not resonate with everyone. Like them, you’ll also have some reservations about a particular idea, and it is absolutely acceptable. But before dismissing a suggestion, whether it will work or not, do give it a proper thought.

The 5 AM Club Notes

1. Morning Motivation Statement

An addiction to distraction is the end of your creative production. Empire-makers and history-creators take one hour for themselves before dawn, in the serenity that lies beyond the clutches of complexity, to prepare themselves for a world-class day.

Excuses breed no genius. Just because you haven't installed the early-rising habit before doesn't mean you can't do it now. Release your rationalizations and remember that small daily improvements, when done consistently over time, lead to stunning results.

All change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. Everything you now find easy you first found difficult. With consistent practice, getting up with the sun will become your new normal. And automatic.

To have the results The Top 5% of producers have, you must start doing what 95% of people are unwilling to do. As you start to live like this, the majority will call you crazy. Remember that being labeled a freak is the price of greatness.

When you feel like surrendering, continue. Triumph loves the relentless.
