It can be a real pain to wake up early, but if this Funders and Founders infographic is any indication, waking up before the sun might just be a serious key to success.

The ‘When Boss Wakes Up’ infographic highlights the wake-up schedules of top executives. This includes people like Apple CEO Tim Cook who rises at about 4:30 in the morning and GM CEO Dan Akerson, who reportedly gets up just 15 minutes after Cook’s usual wake-up time.

One of the earliest risers of all is Virgin America President and CEO David Cush, who gets about a two hour head-start on the day versus those who sleep in til 6 am. If you prefer to hit the snooze button and catch a few more Z’s, it’s probably better to leave the worms to these extremely early birds.
