Whether you’re a morning person, or an evening person, this post is irrelevantly yours 🙂
I’d like you to picture yourself in the following scenario:
You’re back from work / school, after a long day filled with activities and your brain power’s status is “battery low”, and you still have this project / report or whatever that you need to deliver the second day… (Let’s say you need to email it at 9 AM, and it’s already 9:00 PM now)
Option #1: you make yourself a coffee and start working on it till 2 AM, send it and then go to sleep
Option #2: you go to sleep and wake up at 5:00 AM, work on it till 7 AM and send it.
Which option would sound more like you?
Well most of the persons I’ve worked with, would go for Option #1 almost always.
The Tip for this week, is to CHOOSE OPTION #2 🙂 … as Simple as that.
With almost everyone, the same task that would take you 1 hour to finish in the morning, would take you 2 if you do it in the afternoon and almost 4 if you keep it till the evening time. Why is that?? (and JUST FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS Sentence as the Brain is far more sophisticated to describe) Think about your brain as a Garbage bag, once it’s filled with so many things from your daily routine, your computing power will be using the remainder of its capacity… Which would obviously take more time.
So next time just try to crash and get a good night sleep, and wake up early… Smell the Coffee, and then finish your tasks.
Have a nice week!
