Would You Join the 5 AM Club?

Career Advice

Benjamin Franklin said, “There will be plenty of time to sleep when you are dead.” He’s right, and it’s no secret that the most successful people in the world are early risers. They swear by those uninterrupted hours before the clock strikes eight. Knowing this, would you be willing to commit to a 5 AM wake up call for the next 30 days?

It may seem a bit extreme, but hopping out of bed earlier could change your life. Think about what you could get done before you head to work:

  • get in a solid exercise session
  • make breakfast and prepare a healthy lunch
  • read a book
  • write in a journal
  • clean or do chores
  • answer emails
  • meditate or do yoga
  • practice a hobby

If you’re not willing to get up at 5 AM–not many people are!–think about what an extra 30 minutes could do to your morning routine. Try it tomorrow morning: set your alarm for just a little bit earlier than usual and see how much more accomplished you feel before heading into work. You may not need to join the 5 AM club to find your bliss.
