The 5am Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life

I’ve read (or listened to) a vast number of books on self-help, business strategy, and biographies, always seeking wisdom to apply to my life. Most offer something, but few grab me like The 5am Club by Robin Sharma. It’s that rare book I can’t wait to return to each time I set it aside.

I opted for the Audible version, which fits my mobile lifestyle. A quick tip for fellow listeners: don’t miss the supplemental info sheets that accompany the audiobook – they’re invaluable.

The story revolves around two strangers who, after a chance meeting at a seminar, spend months learning from an eccentric billionaire. While the title emphasises waking up at 5am, it’s not rigid; it’s about cultivating habits and mastering time. More than just tips, Sharma provides actionable frameworks, covering everything from sleep and exercise to meditation, making it all feel doable.

The true brilliance of this book isn’t just the advice but its delivery. The narrative style makes complex ideas digestible and engaging. Unlike many books that lose steam, this one maintains its momentum.

In short, it’s a must-read. Even if you’re not usually into self-help, The 5am Club might just change your mind.
