While interesting, this concept ignores Individual Circadian Rhythms - some people are simply 'night owls' and more productive listening to their own rhythm. -- I think the real key, is setting aside time for you everyday, whenever that is. Most people forget this simple mindful step.

I do agree with you, however the major benefit that results from waking up early, is the positive effect it has on the rest of your day. Apart from feeling more accomplished you also have a different outlook on your day and will generally be more engaged throughout the day.

But it doesn't work that way when your circadian rhythm is an evening/night one.
All people like that get from getting up that early are grumpiness/grogginess and mental and physical health issues - there's a great book on this topic called "Why we sleep" by Matthew Walker which I highly recommend to understand why things like 5am clubs are great only for a part of society, called early birds.

Well I guess the early bird catches the worm then... 😉
