J.K. Rowling isn’t a morning person. At least, not a morning person who likes to wake up at 4 a.m.
The Harry Potter series author had a hilarious response to a tweet from Inc. that suggested “successful” people like to rise early and get a head start on the day.
Rowling’s three word response ― “Oh, piss off” ― said it all:
Quite a few people agreed with Rowling, who is arguably one of the most successful people in the world, as over 160,000 people had liked her tweet as of Monday.
The world's most interesting people go to bed at 4am.

I start my day around that time as well. Sure, I am asleep when I do it, and I stay that way for a couple of hours, but I DO start my day there.

Others offered their own takes on the early wake-up call:
I like to wake up around the crack of 10, things have been just fine.

I don't care as long as they do it quietly and don't rattle around the kitchen.

Counterpoint – I stayed up until 4AM last night marathoning Drag Race and I would say that was a huge success

I usually get up to pee around 4 am. Does that count?

Leave the hardcore morning routines to people like Mark Wahlberg, who starts his day at 2:30 a.m. and fills it with an endless rotation of workouts, snacks, seeing his family and more snacks.
