List of Successful People Who Get Up So Early In The Morning

Success never comes easy. The road to the top is bumpy and challenging. And the first step towards it, it seems, is getting up early. These successful world leaders, entrepreneurs, and CEOs seem to drive home the point. The amount of work and stress they deal with is enough to keep one awake all night.

Here are some influential people who get up so early in the morning, they hardly sleep.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO

The 55-year-old CEO is known to be the first one to enter office and the last to leave – a fact he takes pride in. Those who work with him are habitual of receiving emails from him at 4.30 in the morning.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

For someone who is responsible for waking up an entire generation with aromatic coffee, the day has to start early. The Starbucks CEO is said to start work at office by 6 a.m. Some of us are not even midway through our sleep by that time.

Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey

The CEO of Twitter and Square, 38-year-old Jack Dorsey, has worked hard his way up. He has literally burnt the midnight oil to look after his two companies. In an interview, he mentioned he devoted 8 to 10 hours to Twitter and another 8 to 10 to Square every day. It is anybody’s guess he was left with little time (around 5 hours) for sleep.

Disney CEO Bob Iger

The Disney head has confessed to waking up at 4.30 a.m. and utilizing the morning time to exercise, read newspapers, listen to music, and check his emails. Life’s no fairytale, not even for the creators of fairytales.

Narendra Modi

The 63-year-old Indian prime minister is known to be a workaholic. It is believed he hardly sleeps for more than 3-4 hours in a day. When you have a country to run, sleep is a trivial concern.

Shah Rukh Khan

The King Khan of Bollywood is known to sleep for a mere 4 hours. So habitual is he of his short nap that now he cannot sleep for more than 4 hours, despite which the man is never low on energy.

Richard Branson

The Virgin Atlantic tycoon is a surprise entry in this list. Given his flamboyant lifestyle, one would think he would start his day well after noon. But the successful businessman gets up as early as 5.45 a.m. even when he is lounging at his jazzy private island. Keeping a balanced head on your shoulders in the face of success and fame is something not everybody can do.
