I've experienced many advantages of being an early bird over the years: spectacular sunrises, incredible treasures at yard sales, and some of the best and most dramatic lighting for wildlife photos. Freelance writer Glen Stansberry of LifeDev believes that getting up early is also "crucial to success as an entrepreneur" and he has a great list of tips on becoming an early riser including:

- Plan your day the night before.
- Exercise in the morning to wake your body up.
- Reward yourself.
- Be Consistent.
- Lay everything out the night before.
- Go outside.

The Great Backyard Bird Count starts today!
It's an annual four-day event in the United States and Canada that starts Friday, February 17. You can count birds for as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you only count birds that you are familiar with and can positively identify. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
