I do more before 9 a.m. than most people do all day.

“I do more before 9 a.m. than most people do all day” is one of my mottoes.

I love to get up at the crack of dawn, when the whole city is still asleep and I can work or study for a few hours before everybody else wakes up. Also, the morning sunlight is a fabulous thing to see and enjoy. There is nothing better than the feeling of achievement when by 0900 I have already been so productive as I know many people won’t become all day. It’s time for breakfast then, or for a rewarding walk along the beach.

For those of you who are too young to remember, the slogan “we do more before 9 a.m. than most people do all day” comes from a US Army commercial from the 1980s.

The military recruitment ads have gotten better since, I think.

    I also like this morning hours, it feels like extra time you have in the day before everybody wake up.

    Anyone who gets up before 11 AM deserves exactly what they get–I’ll take the night time–a lot of fun AFTER 11 PM

    I think it was Churchill who said anyone who gets up before 11am is a scoundrel.

    Night owl here…10 pm to about 2 or 3 am EDT…
    the chance of me getting a good idea
    or a good post before 10 am in the morning is slim…
    mid afternoon…forget it !

    In my part of Downeast Maine, most people go to bed early, so it is nice and quiet,
    just like the early morn for the rest of you. ☺
