Benefits Of Arriving Your Workplace Early
Successful people know that they should get an early start in a day. Everyone knows that guy that is always at his desk before everyone else, making the rest of the team wonder if he slept at his desk. How does he do it? Why does he do it? Chances are, that early bird knows a few things you don't. Why do you arrive late? Let's take a look at this normal morning for you: you have to get to work at 8:45 a.m. but you woke up at only 8 a.m. You rush into the bathroom to get prepared for the day. You grab whatever clothes you find and look untidy. You run for the bus, catch it just on time and give everyone a frown. You get off the bus, then quickly run to the office. You now look like you just competed in the Lagos Marathon. That's not a great way to start your day.
Now, let's look at what an alternative morning for you would look like if you wake up 90 minutes earlier: you have to get to work at 8:45 a.m. so you get up at 6:30 a.m. You get out of bed, stretch and go effortlessly into the bathroom and get ready for the upcoming day. You search for an outfit and you look neat. You head into the kitchen and eat a nutritious and healthy and save money in the process. You stroll to the bus stop and you're five minutes early for the bus. You then arrive to work at least 45 minutes earlier checking up on your emails and reviewing your to do list and planner for the day. Now that's a fantastic way to start your day!
The Following Are the benefits Of Arriving Early:
  1. A Mindset of Winning
If you regularly wake up early then you have achieved something that is very hard to do: you have conquered your inner voice. This little man inside of you tells you to hit snooze on your alarm, stay in bed just five more minutes and sip a cup of coffee to get you ready for your day. You didn't listen. Instead, you now have a mindset of winning, a superb attribute for your career.
Indeed, no one has ever said that it's easy to get out of bed on a cold day at 6:30 a.m. But, if you want to get to work early then this is something you'll have to do. Of course, it won't happen overnight, but it could be something to achieve over time. Beginning today, try waking up 15 minutes before your normal wake up time. In the following month, wake up 15 minutes before that revised wake up time. And so on. Once you accomplish this, you'll be a force to be reckoned with at the office.
2.Peace and quiet
In a lot of cases, offices are relatively quiet before 8 or 9 a.m., since many employees are on the way in. Instead of being interrupted every five minutes by a coworker with yet another question, you'll be able to make a major dent in your latest project.
You'll have already plowed through your to-do list by the time others arrive; freeing you up to focus on unplanned tasks and duties that may arise. Even if you find your mind isn't quite sharp enough in the morning to tackle your projects, you can still enjoy the quiet morning hours.
  1. Catching Early Calls & Emails
The global economy is 24/7, and it's quite possible that your business has caught on. Therefore, calls and emails are sent out to your private firm all the time. When you get to work early, you're able to start calling customers back, replying to emails, sending out messages to colleagues and overall catching up on all the tasks you need to. This is great because now you won't be rushed at 9 a.m. and you won't feel a tremendous amount of pressure.
  1. Impress others
If you're interested in showing others your strong work ethic, being at work earlier than anyone else is a great way to do it. If you're an employee, your boss will see you as a hard worker who is so dedicated to your job, you're at your desk, working hard, before everyone else. If you have employees, you'll set the example that you're willing to work harder than anyone.
If you are really ambitious, stay later than everyone else, as well, although this type of behavior isn't good for your work-life balance, so if you have to do this at all ensure it is for good reason and the results you get at this time counts. If your work situation is flexible, you can use your early arrival as a great pretext to slip out a little early every afternoon. You'll get home before evening rush hour starts and if someone needs you, you'll be reachable by phone or email.
  1. A Metamorphosis of Optimism
Researchers have reported that morning people show positive characteristics, such as optimism, amiability, satisfaction and self-awareness. These are great traits to have in any career. Although we're constantly told that night owls are intelligent and creative, they also tend to be pessimistic, depressed and neurotic.
Being moody at the office is something most people try to avoid. The negative one is excluded from everyone else. In a world of tight deadlines, fierce competition and a lot of pressure, more offices need someone with a calm behavior. Early risers tend to exhibit this!
  1. Impressing the Boss and Managers
While everyone else is trying to be the last one to arrive and the first to leave, you're at your desk doing your work. When the leaders at work see this, they're impressed by your work ethic and devotion to your job. It is very likely that they will consider you for the next promotion, and during times of restructuring, will they keep you on? It's quite possible
