    Following is a transcript of the video:
    Richard Feloni: Are there some things from your service that you can't shake? So for example, you still wake up at 4:30 in the morning, to go workout, what was it about your time in the Seals, that you wanted to keep these habits up?
    Jocko Willink: They're good habits, why would you not wake up at 4:30?
    Richard Feloni: Well what does this bring to you?
    Jocko Willink: Waking up early? You just get a jump on the day. The reason I wake up at 4:30 in the morning is because no one else is awake yet, so that gives me the opportunity to do things that I need to get done, kinda selfishly for myself, and the big one in that category is working out. And it doesn't feel good at 4:30 when you get up, but by the time 7 o'clock rolls around, and you've already worked out, and you've already got some work done, and you've got some time to say goodbye to your kids before they go to school? It's infinitely better than sleeping in until 6:45, and you get out of bed, and now you've missed your kids going to school, or whatever. You're not prepared for the day, it's awful.
    Feloni: So if someone, maybe they don't have time to work out or they just need something that could be like a quick fix, is there something that you recommend?
    Willink: Oh yeah, workouts don't have to take a long time. Workouts can be very quick. Matter of fact, go do two minutes of burpees, as many burpees as you can, in two minutes, or four minutes, or six minutes, go and sprint, go and do anything very intensely, for a short period of time and you'll get great benefit out of it.
    Feloni: Something I'm sure you hear a lot is 4:30, like this either just can't fit into my schedule, or if I'm gonna be realistic, I'm probably not gonna wake up at 4:30, what do you tell people who say that?
    Willink: Yeah, and there's people that work night shifts, and there's people that it's unhealthy for them, they can't fall as-- it's like no, be healthy, get enough sleep, but, first of all, wake up at the same time every day and, if you pick that time and you start waking up at the same time every day, that's very good for you. It doesn't have to be 4:30, it could be 6:30, it could be 7, I don't know what your personal schedule is, but find out a time, pick it, set it, stick to it, and maintain that schedule, and that's gonna end up better for you.
    I recommend it's earlier. I recommend that you go to bed earlier, 'cause what are you doing at night, most of the time? Most of the time at night, you're not working on anything super productive, you're just winding down and watching stupid IR-film videos, or surfing the internet, reading clickbait stories, right? Don't do that, instead, go to sleep, and then wake up early.
    Feloni: Could you explain that notion of discipline equals freedom?
    Willink: If you want more freedom in your life, you have to have more discipline. If you don't have any discipline, you'll end up with absolutely no freedom, you'll end up being a slave to other people that boss you around. There's all kind of problems that can occur, if you don't have discipline in your life. And the more discipline you have, the more freedom you're gonna have.
    Feloni: So just the discipline of the Seals, will never-- it's impossible to leave?
    Willink: No, it's possible to leave, there's retired seals all over the place that are undisciplined. They've moved on, and they don't care about that anymore. It's fine, I don't judge other people on what they're doin', like they're probably stoked to sleep in and hang out with their kids, and eat breakfast in bed, that's fine. I don't have anything against that. But for me? I wanna get up and go.

I work until 8pm at work home and eaten showered etc by 9pm. Asleep by 9:30-10 awake at 4/4:30. Even know my shift doesn’t start till 11am. College days were better as I start at 9am finish around 2-5pm depending on the day. Some days you get tired. But you go asleep earlier the next night to make up for it

80 percent of the commenters actually seem proud of being lazy and shiftless. "Dude it's like 5:30 AM right now and I've totes been awake all night, how badass is my complete inability to regulate myself? It's like I have no discipline at all! Eyuck yuck!" Then they'll cry when they can't make a good living and put up the Bern signal for Bernie Sanders to swoop in and whisk them off to Never Never Land.

what time do you go to bed to wake up at 4:30? if your giving yourself 8hrs of sleep you need to be in bed by 8:30pm... if you work till 5 like most people then you work , eat , sleep.. that sucks . it takes discipline to work all day and raise a family on 3-4 hours of sleep a day imo

why would I not wake up at 4:30? glad you asked, well because I don't wanna feel like shit for the rest of the day? 2.because long sleep regenerates all bodily processes? 3.because I enjoy sleeping till 8-9 and feel good and rested? 4.because I have nothing to do at 4:30? 5.because I feel like shit when I was working out in the morning as my blood sugar dropped and my body wasn't in the optimal state to torture it at 5am thinking it's good? I wake up whenever I fcking want and based how I feel and you can keep your military bullshit discipline

Starting the new routine of %am wake - just trying to get to bed earlier without distractions and not hit the snooze button or go back to bed when zombified in the mornings. There's getting up and there's waking up.. I just need to keep improving until it works every damn day. I've also noticed my best sleep efficiency is 6 hours, then 8, then 6, then 8 etc.. rather than 7 each night.. weird!

I'm normally just getting to bed at 2am. This "one size fits all" mentality doesn't work. Some people are more awake/alert in the evening than they are in the morning. I've always been that way. It's a struggle for me to wake up early, and I'm always sluggish and tired when I do so. If I wake up early, I'm tired all day. If I wake up late, I can go all night.

All these videos telling people to wake up in the middle of the night are posted by people who have no social life. It's fine if you're an army dude with a bunch of comrades who're on the same schedule or even if you happen to have a partner at home who's on a similar schedule as you. Otherwise, you end up going crazy with lonliness because everyone else is out having drinks and socializing past 9:30 or 10 while you're in bed sleeping.

Just get 6-8 hours of sleep and work hard when you’re awake. The time you wake up has zero effect on productivity because when you get tired, everyone else who slept in still has energy. Therefore you have to say “sleep less for success” which is fundamentally unhealthy.

Just be productive with your time and learn to say no (esp. to yourself), have self-discipline. Wake-up time is irrelevant. Plus why does it matter a Navy SEAL advocates this? It does NOT, he is just a soldier and doesn't know more than you.
