If you’re new to my community, a warm welcome to you! I’m so happy you’ve decided to join us!
It’s supposed to be another scorcher here in Central Ontario today! I don’t think I’m moving too far away from my air conditioner today… In fact, I’m loading up my current projects onto my laptop so that if it gets too hot to work in my room, I can go and sit in the living room and still get some work done.
I’m probably going to have to tweak my schedule again this week to account for the times when it gets too hot to work in here. There’s really only so much I can do on my laptop and ipad because I am extremely attached to my big desktop with its large monitors.
Which brings me to today’s read…
Today’s Read: How to Find Your Most Productive Hours
Not everyone works their best during a standard 9 to 5 schedule. In fact, for those of us who choose to work at home, it’s not even an option. And I’d venture to guess that if you’re trying to create a time-freedom lifestyle for yourself, one of the main reasons you’ve decided on the solopreneur route to begin with!
The thing is, most people only have about two to three actual productive hours in their day. To get the most done, you should take advantage of them and figure out what time and day you perform the best.
Here are a few ways to figure that out:
Experiment with Your Sleep Schedule
Figure out what your body likes the best. Are you a “night owl” or a “morning lark?” Even if you think you might know, give each type of schedule a try. Don’t just stick to the traditional 9 to 5 unless you have to.
Keep Track with A Journal
Keep track of the information above in your journal. Take notes of both periods of inactivity and activity. Write down the times, the project you worked on, your mood, and other important details like obstacles that happened that normally don’t or if you got something done even faster than usual.
Also, keep in mind the environment you are working in, how much sleep you got the night before, or other stress factors – the more information you can provide, the better. After a week of building and experimenting with this data, you will determine your best hours to work.
Use Applications or Technology
If keeping track of this information on your own seems tiresome, then take advantage of technology or applications instead. RescueTime is an automated time tracker that pools all this data to track where you spend your time the most. They also generate reports and provide other tools that allow you to block distractions and improve your productivity.
Peak, Trough, Recovery
These are the stages you go through as you work. When you first get going, this is the peak where you have most of your energy and motivation. Then as your energy starts to go down, you are in your trough period.
Recovery is at the end of your shift, and best left for mindless or easy tasks. This means that when you get to work, no matter the time of day, always do the most important or most challenging work first. You will have the best energy and mental focus to get through it faster and more efficiently.
Overall, it’s important to remember that you don’t need to work a total of eight hours to be productive. You need to find the time that is best for you.
