“The early bird can have the worm, because worms are gross and mornings are stupid.”
‘You have to rise early to be successful’…
So I keep seeing, but is that all true?
Do you have to be part of the 5am club in order to achieve things?
There are some benefits of course, you can get more done, the rest of the world isn’t up yet, no distractions, You could essentially get a workout in, have breakfast and get the most important stuff done before 9am and have the rest of the day to do other stuff…
But if you anything like me then getting up at 5am is just plain useless,
In the book ‘The Power of When’ Dr Michael Breus Catergrizes humans into 4 main animal types (Dolphin, Lion, Bear and Wolf)
Dolphins and Lions are the early risers, whereas bears (Most of the population) their sleep and creative pattern falls more in line with the standard 9-5…
Then there are the wolves
‘Wolves have a medium sleep drive, they are nocturnal hunters.
There’s no way that a Woolf will wake up with a single alarm or go through the day without a few cups of coffee.
Wolves are moody pessimists, but they are also incredibly creative individuals.
They are impulsive and adventurous but tend to overdramatize from time to time and react with emotional intensity.
They prioritize pleasure before all, which is why they’d rather sleep than work in the morning.
They are most alert sometime around 7 p.m., and most productive late at night.
They have no idea why society is organized the way it is.’

The point is if your an early riser than enjoy your worms, if you’re more like a wolf, then make sure you utilise your most creative time in the evening and don’t waste it on the tv.
