How to Wake up on Time for Davening

A mashgiach of a certain yeshivah once came to Rav Elyashiv and told him that the students in his yeshivah had a difficult time waking up in the morning to get to davening on time.  The mashgiach asked how to deal with this.

“There is no trick to it,” said Rav Elyashiv.  “A person needs to engrave upon himself the importance of davening, and only then will he not arrive even one minute late!  A shopkeeper or grocer doesn’t have to look for suggestions on how to wake up in the morning, because he knows that if he comes late he will lose out financially.  Similarly, if a person were to recognize the importance of davening, he wouldn’t have to seek advice on how to wake up on time.” ~ The Gadol Hador
