I’m not a morning person. I barely make it to work on time to write these articles. But apparently, according to Harvard Business Review, early-birds are way more productive than any of us night owls. i mean, I’m not surprised in the slightest, but just what are these early-risers doing to make their days so productive?
For starters, they don’t view their day as a “day.” Instead, it’s split into two different segments: morning and afternoon. Sounds simple enough, right?
Wrong. Morning is devoted all to task organization: making check lists, checking things off said lists, and then adding more things to their checklists. All before noon, it seems that chores and housekeeping is all these morning people focus on.
So what happens in the afternoon? This is where creative content production comes into play. These productive people get to work super early to make sure everything is organized and spend the afternoon doing what they actually need to do.
And if you want to transform yourself from a night owl to an early bird, follow these tips. Start with the checklists, and make them every morning. Eliminate the mundane decisions like outfit choices in the morning, or just lay out your outfit the night before. Finally, make room for “me” time, so that you don’t get overwhelmed. By segmenting your day and staying low-stress, your productivity levels will go through the roof.
