When you think “productivity tips,” your mind may turn to keyboard shortcuts or 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.
