I'm a morning person...who just couldn't wake up early. (I'm still trying and I will never give up until I develop that habit!) Waking up early is important because how you start your day or what you do in the morning has an impact that lasts throughout the day. And one of the best things you can do in the morning is to read a book and open your mind.
"Open your mind by opening a book. Reading in the morning is the most important step you can take to keep your mind open, observant and ready to learn.
As an individual, and especially as an entrepreneur, nothing is more important than learning and getting better, so don't wait until nighttime to focus on your most important objective.
Try a book that’s geared to helping you solve a personal or professional challenge. That will acclimate your mind to thinking through problems, which is a powerfully beneficial habit to form. It is especially useful right before you start your day (which will invariably have its share of challenges)."
