Being a ‘Morning Person’ Is a Lonely Thing
It took me years of conditioning to become a morning person out of necessity.
It's not something I think you are born with, but I love the morning, and the earlier, the better. I am my happiest, most productive, and most creative at 4 AM. This is, as I have learned, not a common thing.
If you are a morning person, you know that the worst feeling is having a great idea, wanting to share it, and knowing you can't. Every morning, I have something that occurs to me that I think needs to be shared, and you can not reach out to anyone, because they are sleeping.
If you do reach out, and I have, people get mad because you woke them. Boo-hoo. The morning person then puts in a full day of work, thinking, moving, finishes their day, and realizes it's 3 PM. That is when everyone calls, texts, e-mails and wants to correspond and work. No thanks. I wrapped up my thinking for the day.
Am I lonely? No. That would require feelings. However, I really wish people would wake up earlier so we can s--- done and shut the day down by no later than 4 pm. If you work for yourself, try it. Start your day at 3 or 4 am, grab coffee, enjoy wide open spaces on the road, and finish your day WAY before everyone else. Do that for 1 week and you will never go back.
P.S. Apologies for the stupid selfie, I used it because it conveys the message I wanted to send. While you are sleeping there is a loser like me somewhere cranking out ideas with no one to share them with.
