The quietness during the morning hours helps to plan better causing better success rate.

Better concentration improves performance

This means, such employees can be able to finish the work early. The early-rising and punctual employees always adhere to the time-line and stand best chance for promotion.

Early-risers inspire others

An early riser reaches office before others. He/She finishes the work before others. His/her quality of work is better than others. He/She is trusted by the superior officers and is the first choice for the next promotion. It is quite natural that such person always inspires others. He/she attains leadership qualities.

The employees who rise early and reach office on or before time enjoy many other tangible and intangible benefits. They enjoy prestigious positions in their working places. Such employees enjoy the trust of their bosses. As they reach office early, they can leave office on time. As a result, they can spend more time with their families. They enjoy mental peace in their working places because of lesser number of conflict situations with their superior officers. Their leaves are sanctioned without much hitch. They can avail other benefits being offered by their offices in a selective manner. In case of emergency in family, they are treated very sympathetically, which the habitual late-comers can't and don't expect.

Final words
