Twenty top CEOs were surveyed by Yahoo! Finance and 80% of them said they wake up every morning at 5:30 or earlier. As for the the other 20% — they rise and shine no later than 6:00. According to Forbes, studies show that early risers are more optimistic, conscientious and stable. It turns out that morning people are more proactive too — which leads to greater career success and more pay. Obviously, Ben Franklin wasn’t kidding when he advocated the benefits bestowed upon early risers.
The bottom line: You never know … the quest for additional income could be as easy as readjusting your alarm clock setting.
