The early bird gets the worm

The early bird gets /catches the worm means that if you wake up early or arrive at some place early or do something early, you will have the advantage over other people and will therefore have a better chance of success. You will be rewarded - just as a bird is rewarded with a worm if it gets there first!

1. On many beaches there are beautiful seashells that wash up on the seashore. If you want to pick up the best and most beautiful shells you have to wake up early and head to the beach before anyone else. The early bird gets the worm!

2. - If we get to the cinema early we can choose any seat we want.
    - Yep, the early bird gets the worm.

3. The early bird gets the worm - If you buy your air ticket a few months before your flight date it’s much cheaper and you get to choose either a window or an aisle seat.

4. You need to make an early reservation for well-known restaurants if you are planning to dine there on Valentine’s day. The early bird always gets the worm.

5. An early bird is a person who wakes up early. On the other hand, a person who likes staying up late is a night owl. If you are both an early bird and a night owl… and you don’t take a nap/ siesta during the day, you are “burning the candle at both ends” - you are not getting enough rest.


  1. Are you an "early bird" or a night owl?

  2. I am neither an early bird nor a night owl. I like to go to bed early and prefer to get up late. Perhaps I am just a "lazy bird":-)
