It's definitely no secret that the most productive people always wake up early.
Tapping into the power of the morning gives you the opportunity to set a positive tone for the day.
Early risers use their morning quiet time for organization, goal-setting and planning out their days and weeks ahead.
Many get up early to exercise, boosting their mood and fitness. Others like to jump straight into their work, tackling their most difficult task of the day first when there are not that many distractions.
Thankfully for Juliana, AmpliVox's Quality Assurance Intern Superstar, waking up early is a skill she did not have to learn because she is a natural early bird.
Juliana is always excited to wake up at the first sight of dawn and never drags her feet out of bed.
She greets a wonderful new day with enthusiasm and gets a head start on the day by getting so much more done in the morning.
Her early morning routine consists of:
It gives the girls the time they need to talk about the things that really matter in life, such as: current world politics, the economy, global warming and shoes.
Grandma always serves chamomile tea in the morning for its antibacterial effects to prevent and treat colds.
Juliana prefers tea over coffee for its soothing effects in relieving stress and moisturizing properties as it does wonders for her skin.
Staying updated with the latest around the globe and following a news story or case thoroughly contributes to a higher understanding of the world.
Juliana goes straight for the funnies and welcomes a good morning laugh. She is an avid fan of Calvin and Hobbes for their uncompromising vision of sweetness and pain, humor and philosophy.
Juliana follows the funnies with checking the weather section and then closely goes over the stories that made the front page.
She also likes to keep an eye on the latest in her local area through the classifieds and advertisements, increasing her working knowledge of her locality and loves a good sale.
Playing with building blocks improves her motor skills and mental stimulation, encouraging Juliana to test spatial relationships and rotate objects in the mind's eye to create a better structure.
Through block play Juliana masters the importance of sequence, cooperation and responsibility to work together as a team to reach a common goal.
Her practice of bringing all the pieces together and making it work has transferred well into Juliana integrating Multimedia Lecterns with complementing accessories and sound systems.
Leaving the house early allows you to miss all of that traffic, instead of sitting behind the wheel of your car you can be seated at your desk getting some work done.
Juliana takes advantage of this extra time to create the daily flash report, a 1-page overview of activities which had occurred the previous day.
The flash report provides Grandpa with a quick snapshot of how the business is performing in regards to Service, Sales, Billing, and Inventory.
Flash reports allow AmpliVox CEO Don Roth to identify exceptions sooner than later and take corrective action if necessary.
Waking up early is a proven way to have a productive and enlightened start to the day while most people are still tucked in bed hitting the snooze button.
