How Do I Become A Morning Person?

Good question. You’re probably asking for the same reasons I did:
1. Seems like most people who have it together are up before sunrise
2. I am not a morning person and find the sunrise despicable

Some of the hardest working and most committed leaders I know are morning people. I’m sure that there is a percentage who, like me, would prefer to sleep in until 9…or 1.. but a vast majority of successful leader/entrepreneuers are morning people. It’s a common thread and distinct correlation that is difficult to ignore.

But it’s also difficult to ignore my own body clock. Or is it? Here’s what I’ve found online that helped me start making the shift to becoming, if not a morning person, a person who manages to get up at or around 6:15 AM — every day (yes, Saturday too).
