Remote workers don’t wake up early

It’s said that the early bird catches the worm, but in the age of remote work people don’t get up early.Many people don’t get up until 9 o’clock. This did not affect their performance. Vivian Tu, 28, a former Wall Street trader who started her media brand Your Rich BFF during the pandemic and made a seven-figure income, never got up before 9am. Sleep expert Chris Barnes doesn’t like the adage that “early to bed and early to rise makes you healthy, wealthy and wise”, arguing that executives are playing with the false impression that mornings are better. Some people are night owls, and waking up early forces them to fight their own circadian rhythms. Remote work has changed all that. Ruth Kraft, a law firm partner and former judge, is happy that Zoom meetings have replaced in-person meetings, allowing her to sleep until the last minute. Before the pandemic, she needed to leave home at 7:30 a.m. to get to the city for a 10:00 court meeting. Barnes called on business executives to respect everyone’s schedules and work as asynchronously as possible.
