J.K. Rowling Tweets What She Really Thinks About Successful People Who Wake Up Early

The Great Master of Twitter is at it again! The lovely J.K. Rowling is back to grace us with her refreshing wit once more. Seriously, someone needs to put together a book of J.K. Rowling’s social media witticisms. It would be delightful.

So, there have been a fair number of articles turning up about how the most successful people start their day indecently early. I’m talking obscenely early here. Anyway, Inc. recently tweeted this particular article:

But J.K. Rowling was simply not having it with this sort of madness. As one who is generally considered a moderately successful person, J.K. Rowling had this sound response:

There you have it, folks! The Queen has spoken. If J.K. Rowling (whose net worth is valued at roughly $1 billion) says that getting up at 4:00 am to be successful is a load of bull, I think it’s entirely reasonable that we believe her.

I think what J.K. Rowling is trying to relay is that if you want to be successful, it doesn’t matter what time you get up in the morning, it matters that you actually get the work done. As long as you’re getting things done, feel free to work out your own schedule as you will. So, thank you, J.K. Rowling, for punching a very large hole in this nonsensical theory.

Plus, being up at 4:00 am is dreadful. In my opinion, 4:00 am is the most inhumane hour. It’s that time where you know that dawn is coming soon, but it’s still pitch black, middle of the night, and all you want to do is stay curled up in bed. It’s when your brain needs to be asleep, and if it’s not, you feel like hell. If you’re up at four in the morning, there’s just a part of you that really feels like you shouldn’t be awake right now.

And don’t even get me started at the people who decide what a great idea to wake up even earlier than 4:00 am. Those people aren’t human at all. I’m looking at you, 2:30 am Riser, Mark Wahlberg. You psychopath.
