“If you go to bed at 10:00 and get up by 6:00 a.m., things will work out for you.”I remember a story about John Bytheway. He had decided in high school to write a book for young people on how to survive their early years. After years as an adult he still had not done it.

As I remember there was a cassette tape from I think Spencer W Kimball. He set that as the alarm clock on his tape player. He woke up, rewarded himself with a delicious orange juice and went to work early. In the hours before he was to start work, he wrote his book, after several months he had a manuscript. It is from this decision and his commitment to it, developing discipline, that John created the career and life he now has.
