The early bird gets the wormI was speaking to my sister yesterday morning. We were chatting about how the job market is a bit more difficult for new grad's. She pointed out something we both do and would help regardless of whether you are self employed or looking for a job. Both she and I start our day before 5AM each morning.
Getting up early is such a simple thing to do but I believe few really make it a habit. If you think about it, our forefathers rose early to begin their chores because work needed to be completed if they wanted to be able to have an edge in the marketplace.
Give rising early a try for a week to see how it benefits you. I have no doubt Ben Franklin had the right idea so many years ago when he wrote "Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise".
I am a CPA in San Antonio and serve individuals and small businesses in San Antonio and surrounding areas.
