There are many top performers in their field who use an early start to gain an advantage: 

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook is known for waking up at 3:45 a.m. each day (USA Today). As a result, he’s able to respond to around 800 emails per day, exercise, run a successful company, and still get 7 hours of sleep daily. 
  • Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz wakes up at 4:30 a.m. (Independent). and is able to walk his dogs and have coffee with his wife every morning as a result. 
  • Even actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gets up at 4:00 a.m. to start working out according to his Facebook account, giving him an advantage over competitors.
