Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
By 6 a.m., Abbie has already walked her dog, responded to 100 emails and posted something clever on Facebook.
By 6 a.m., Scott has already read the paper cover to cover, set his fantasy team and finished his workout.
By 6 a.m., Rachel is not only ready for the day, but helped another human being – her son, Aiden – do so too.
They are what I am lovingly calling A.M. All Stars in the workplace. They kill it every morning – so much so they are hungry for lunch by 10:59 a.m.
Then there is me.
Come 6 a.m., the only thing I am usually doing is cussing out at my alarm clock.
And guess what?
Both types “work” in the workplace!
I came across a great article by Fast Company proving that A.M. All Stars and P.M. Powerhouses are – in fact – equally healthy, wealth and wise. We’re just different.
And, funny enough, the article reports that – according to a recent study – while morning people were better tackling analytical issues during the morning hours, and night owls were better with the same during the evening hours; BOTH groups tended to be more creative during their off hours!
Not sure I agree given I can barely string a sentence together in the morning, but what say you?
Are you an A.M. All Star or P.M. Powerhouse? When are you most efficient in the office? When are you the most creative?
