I've found myself actually timing it so I can get to a red light and check something on my phone." — Kent Oyler 3. "Breakfast? No. God, no.

When I think of the word relax, I think of doing nothing. And there's always something to do." — Williams 7. "Do I have to use an alarm? No. I can tell myself I need to get up at 5:30, and my internal clock goes into action." — Brown
