It is ironic to publish this post just one more day up early: at 5:30 am since my first clock. Obviously this is programmed and automatically publish when I will be already working.
Anyway, what I was going. I admit that I do not like early. I have never liked it. It is not laziness or idleness, I assure you. Since I was a student I used to do more nightlife that day and not for partying (I also had my time).
Surely more than one person, especially creative (designers, illustrators, programmers, writers ...) can identify with what I will say now is that I much prefer to work at night than during the day.
By day it is warmer and there are many more things that can interrupt and stop the flow of ideas that happen to you when you start to do something. Without exaggerating, I think 95% of the posts of this blog have been written last one in the morning (and this is no exception). During the day there are many interruptions, I will mention a few:
- Phone calls.
- Posts (Whatsapp, Telegram, etc ...).
- Street noises.
- Neighbors (if you live in a building).
- People who live with you (sensitive subject, but to work at home better the fewer distractions. Similarly, you too can be the distraction ...)
- Neighbors who play an instrument (why everywhere I've lived there ever a neighbor who plays the piano or trumpet?).
- Notifications on social networks.
- Clients with last minute changes.
- Family Matters (washing, cooking, cleaning, etc ...)
And the list could be much longer.
At night, unless there is some unforeseen, you're just you and your computer (or whatever you work with). You can put your music without anyone bothering you or you say "low volume" or "change the song."
I do not say that what he is up at 17:00 every day, is not it.
But instead of at 6 or 7 am, I prefer to get up at 10 or 11 and so hold on until 4 or 5 awake. I postponed my day just to have more quiet night hours. And those times are far more productive than 8 hours of full-time work, with a break (hopefully).
I understand that some people prefer early and "seize the day" (which in my opinion is the same but advancing it a few hours), but everyone likes.
And eye, I talk about work at night in creative things to be more productive.
Although for some time and because of my work schedule (the same entered 9 in the morning at 6 o'clock, do you have working in a mall), and I decided to get up early whenever possible to "seize the day "and if that day and night lengthens am inspired, I can always also take advantage of the night. Yes, always making sure that the day will not have to work in the morning, one thing that I like most the night and other superpowers have anti fatigue by sleep deprivation.
And you, are you up early or stay up late over ?.
