It happens to everyone, at one time or another, but a really early wake-up makes me put into place a system of backups without rival:
- Step 1: I leave a wakeup request with the hotel.
- Step 2: I set the alarm on the alarm clock in the room, or on the television if it has an alarm system.
- Step 3: I set the alarm on my personal travel clock.
- Step 4: I set a wakeup alarm on my cell phone, with the ring tone volume turned to high.
And if, after all of that, I still oversleep, my appearance standards at work that day will just not be up to the usual. Oh well!
