アメリカ人は早起き:Americans Wake Up Early

This week I woke up early for 'asa geiko (morning practice)' every morning.  Having tired of complaining about my husband and son leaving me for Kendo practice, I've just started it with my daughter (actually it's fun).

We woke up at 5:15am.  Half yarning, we hit the road.  It was 5:30 am and, surprise, surprise.  The morning traffic had already started!   "Look at all those cars!!   C'mon, it's still 5:30!"

I knew that American people are early risers.  Obama wakes up at 5am, while Tim Cook sends e-mails at 4:30am and goes to the gym (many American gyms are open 24/7).   But it was a real eye-opener.

日本も外資の人は早い人が増えてきました。これは本社とやりとりするためにだと思いますが。最近ではカフェで 8 時くらいから一時間集まって勉強している新人さんも見かけます。少しずつスタイルが変わってきているのかなとは感じます。

あーこっちの駐在員が夕方から電話ミーティングなのと同じですね^^ 新人偉い! そういう話聞くと絶対今のワカモノの方が努力してるって思います。
