Are you a morning person or a night owl? Do you fall into a mid-afternoon slump? Get your second wind after dinner?
By knowing yourself and your work habits, you’ll be better able to schedule projects for the best, most productive time. For example, if you routinely pop out of bed refreshed and ready to face the day, then mornings are your best time to do work that requires heavy thinking, such as writing or product creation.
If you know you slow down after lunch, then schedule those low-energy, brain-dead tasks for the afternoon.
Don’t fight your natural rhythms. Instead, learn to work with them, and you’ll be far more productive.
