To increase your productivity, start your day early. The more time you take to sit, think and plan, the better organized you will be in every area of your life.
In the biographies and autobiographies of successful women and men, almost all of them seem to have one thing in common. They’ve developed great organisational skills, and a habit of going to bed at a reasonable hour and rising early to start the day.
Many successful people like to arise at 5 or 5:30 a.m., so that they can have enough time to think and plan for the coming day. As a result, they are always more effective than those who sleep in until the last possible moment.
A few minutes of quiet reflection before you begin any undertaking can save you many hours in executing the task. When you get up early and plan your day in advance, you tend to be calmer, more clear-headed and more creative throughout the day.
