How The Most Successful Night Owls Manage To Wake Up Early

If you’re a night owl, it might feel impossible to shine at morning meetings, but these tips from those who’ve been there might help.  

The stories are legend–Jack Dorsey of Square reportedly gets up at 5 meditate before work.

Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo says she wakes up at 4 a.m. and begins her workday.

Disney CEO Bob Iger says that he doesn’t just wake up at 4:30 a.m. each day, he’s already read the news, worked out, answered emails and caught up on work before most of us have blindly reached out to smack the snooze button.

Here are some tips from successful people who often stay up all night hashing out a killer proposal but cringe on how to be more effective in the morning:

  • Pre-plan in the evenings
  • Wake but don’t work early
  • Manage your energy, not your time
  • Don’t open email until noon
  • Turn your phone off and leave it in another room

Question: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
