I tried waking up at 4 a.m. every morning like Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi, but I ended up creating a perfect morning routine for myself

She was also named the No. 1 most powerful woman in the world, twice, by Fortune Magazine.
Like many other CEOs and leaders, Nooyi starts her day earlier than everyone else, waking up at 4 a.m. and getting to the office by 7 a.m.
After four weeks of following the morning routines of Jack Dorsey, Arianna Huffington, Barack Obama, and Benjamin Franklin, I was getting accustomed to 5 a.m. starts and exercising before the sun came up.
Waking up at 4 a.m., however, would be a whole new challenge.
It would require going to bed extra early, which meant a radical change in how I structured my day and social commitments.
I didn't manage to wake up at 4 a.m. the entire week. In fact, I only attempted it for three days, and the earliest I managed was 4:15 a.m.
After the experiment, however, I realized that I'd created the perfect morning routine for myself in the process. It just doesn't involve starting at 4 a.m.
