Business Insider's Justin Gmoser tells us that one common trait of successful people is that they rise early in the morning.  Take a cue from Apple CEO Tim Cook who is up and about at 5 am or Virgin founder Richard Branson who wakes up with the sunrise.  Not a morning person?  Well, its never to late to start.  Begin by going to bed early and consistently at the same time each night.   Get 6 - 8 hours of sleep and wake at the same time each morning.  Refrain from "catching up" on sleep on the weekends and breaking your pattern.  Exercise first thing in the morning and eat a good breakfast wtih protein.  Pack your lunch and pick out your outfit the night before. Learn to rise with the sun.  Need some technological help? Therapy lights can help imitate sunlight and sleep apps can tell you your sleep patterns.
