Productivity

When are you the most productive with work related tasks and getting $h!t done! I have noticed for myself that when I get up early start my day at the gym and then go right to work I am much more productive then other times of day. When are you all the most productive, how and why?

When are you the most productive?

I know I am good at high-energy tasks until about 11 am, so I've prioritized my calendar around that. 8-11 is notifications off, heads down stuff. After 11 I open up to meetings/colab work with other teams. After 3pm is when I will dive back in and start admin work which is often brainless.Β

I completely agree with this the morning is most often when I am ready to bang out all my tasks and save the meetings and mindless busy work for the afternoons.Β

Early morning and then just after the post-lunch coffee for me are the power hour times.Β

Im pretty locked in from 730-12, then the afternoon turns into a crapshoot. I schedule most of my meetings for the afternoons for this reason.Β

I am super productive early on trying to do as much as I can in the morning, cause I get sleepy after lunch.Β

I'm not even coherent before 8.Β  I think I am, but when I revisit anything tangible I tried to do at that hour, I cringe.Β  Β I can read emails, make my task list, get a good deal of coffee pumped into my veins, but I am not capable of critical thinking until around 8:30-9:00.

8 am - 12 pm is very productive for me.Β  Work tasks, working out, generally getting shit done.Β  I also get a burst after lunch but that is typically when I spend time with clients.Β  My time spent there is very valuable but generally less productive.

If I workout in the morning, then I am usually laser focused for a few hours right away. Otherwise I tend to slack off and not get into it until later in the day.

I used to be all about later in the day and nights, but I feel I started shifting in my 30's.

Now I'm up at 6:30 most days and the late nights, without an impending deadline or big deal, ain't so easy nowadays.

I like being most productive from 8-11/12 and then depending on the day I try to keep that focus through 3 pm after a midday sunshine walk or core workout. I work out before work, but doing something active around lunch usually helps keep my energy and focus on point.Β Β

I pretty much have unlimited energy until around 11-11:30. I try to start my day around 7am and grind until the noonish hour. My meetings are well spread out, but I usually try to hit my top targets in the am

I have to remember to never answer emails first thing, which can be difficult, because I work for a company HQ in the Eastern time zone, and I come in early my time, but midmorning theirs.Β  Β I'm really at my best midmorning - awake, focused, not yet bogged down.

9-12 in the morning and 2-4 is my prime time. Rest goes in doing manual no brainer tasks or self-learning.
