Are you an ‘owl’ (night person) or ‘fowl’ (morning person)? I am definitely a fowl. I generally get up at 5am to leave for work by 5.40am but even if I have no specific commitments I am often out of bed and rearing to go well before 7am.
It is so much more efficient to plan your day so that you get the maximum benefit from your prime time. I can achieve more in 30 minutes in the morning than I can in 3 hours of an evening.
This evening is an excellent example – there is a basket of clean clothes to fold, some ironing to do, sewing to work on as well as sweeping and mopping floors. I will not be doing any of it tonight but once I have had about 8 hours sleep it will be finished in less than an hour.
When do you do your best work? Do you have different times for different activities? How do you structure you day and what needs doing?
