When you think “productivity tips,” your mind may turn toor organizing tools. But here’s one tip that stands out for its ability to help you reach new heights in productivity: Get up earlier.
Productive minds ranging from Benjamin Franklin to Emily Post credit an early rise with their super-achievement.
A recent study by Christoph Randler, a biology professor at the University of Education at Heidelberg, backs up the theory that early risers tend to have a more proactive and productive mindset.
Randler asked students when they were most energetic and willing to change a situation. The morning people were more likely to agree with statements such as, “I feel in charge of making things happen.”
Think about it: Having the discipline to rise earlier speaks volumes for your ability to accomplish whatever you set your mind to.
