You may also want to check the Console logs (Applications => Utilities => Console) to see if there are any repeating errors during startup.

Or, you could just get in the habit of not rebooting. OS X is based on BSD, so it's designed to run 24/7/365. There's rarely ever any need to do a real reboot.

And finally, you could upgrade your hard disk to an SSD. My lesser-specced MBP boots in a little less than 15 seconds.
Agreed with you SSD is the way to boot up your mbp fast. No doubts.
