I should be at Bill Gate's level of income (waking up at 2:45 and all)... [Sleep]


While some famously successful businesspeople
are known to be early risers, it's not true that the typical U.S. millionaire gets up every workday at the crack of dawn.

Author Thomas Stanley conducted a national survey of U.S. millionaires to profiled their attitudes and behaviors. Based on that research, he reports that the typical millionaire gets up at about 6:40 A.M. on a weekday, with the median time being 6:25 A.M. (Thus, 50% of millionaires get up after that time). Only about 20% of U.S. millionaires report rising before 5:40 A.M.

Stanley argues that there is in fact no significant correlation between rising early and being wealthy, though this observation is susceptible to sample bias.
