Waking up in early morning: does that impact (positive/negative) your business?

Be it Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, all wake up early in morning. What is your experience?

You can't beat a good night's sleep and waking up refreshed and energised. Unfortunately anyone living in a town or city is living in a deluge of electronic radiation. The radiation that comes from mobile phone hot spots and cell phone towers. These elf's interfere with our body's sleep patterns so consequently we don't get quality sleep. This over several years causes our immune systems to become compromised and as a result illnesses such as cancer ensue....

Scientific studies have shown it depends on the person. If I wake up before 7:00am, it's very disruptive for me. It lowers my productivity, and kills my creativity even if I slept a full 8 hours that night.

Experiment and discover the best overall lifestyle rhythm that works for you.

100% agree. Waking up early and especially starting the day with exercise to invigorate the body and mind, is well documented to have a positive impact on productivity.

I never met or hear about a success's entrepreneur who wakes up later than 6:00. Never.

I disagree ... I usually wake up around 1:00pm and sleep around 6:00am

I wake up at 6 every day, weekends too. I try going to bed early when possible and have 8-9 hours of sleep. Train a few times a week in competitive sport. when I do it I succeed when I stop doing it I start failing. Every time

Depends on your personal lifestyle, if your are day person or nite person. I'm a nite person, so 4 days out of 7, I woke up at 2pm to start the day and end it at 5 am.

Have discovered early am hours is best for my fitness time, and late pm hours best for my work. So 3-days out of the week I balance it all by waking up 7am for the gym time, then back to sleep to wake up at 1/2p to start the day.

@Rod, you need to get out more often or broaden your network. I know many successful late-timer-entrepreneurs.

Early to bed and early to rise is an age old maxim which is an eternal truth. I not only firmly believe it but have experienced it all through my life. The benefits can only be experienced, not explained.
