EARLY TO RISE AND QUICK TO SUC­CEED

CLEO (Malaysia) - - CASH & CAREER -

Th­ese CEOs are liv­ing proof that the early bird re­ally catches the worm.

1. VIR­GIN AMER­ICA CEO DAVID CUSH

David Cush’s alarm goes off at 4:15am, where he then checks his emails and has con­fer­ence calls to his East Coast as­so­ciates, all be­fore hit­ting the gym and squeez­ing in the morn­ing news­pa­per over break­fast.

2. DIS­NEY CEO ROBERT IGER

Robert Iger wakes up at 4:30am. He pro­ceeds to ex­er­cise, reads a book, replies emails, has break­fast, and even man­ages to catch a few episodes of his favourite TV show be­fore head­ing off to work.

3. CHRISTIE’S CEO STEVE MUR­PHY

The CEO of the auc­tion­ing gi­ant turns to Wil­liam Blake for his rea­son why he wakes up early: “Think in the morn­ing, act in the noon, read in the evening, and sleep at night.” We think this pretty much says it all!

4. STAR­BUCKS CEO HOWARD SCHULTZ

Schultz goes for a bike ride ev­ery morn­ing but still man­ages to reach the of­fice be­fore 6am. Pres­i­dent Michelle Gass has been said to wake up at 4:30am ev­ery day for the past 15 years. Might have some­thing to do with the cof­fee.
