I’m reading studies that indicate proactive (not necessarily productive) can often be linked to those who are “up with the lark”, while those who define themselves as “evening people” are likely to be less proactive in the workplace. One report said: “The research, which surveyed 367 student participants, found a correlation between their self-reported ‘morningness’ (measured by their answers to questions about how easy they find it to get up in the morning and how alert they feel) and their self-reported proactivity (measure by their agreement to the questions), was statistically significant.
This is because, while it is fair to assume that those who are able to spring out of bed at the crack of dawn are likely to feel more proactive, there has long been an assumption that any source of early vitality could be short-lived once the day really gets going.”
In other words, morning people? Proactive. Evening people? Not so much?
What do you think? Would you agree? Let the arguments begin!
