I know better than to say that I am a morning person. Claim that I’m a morning person and I’ll likely be told by multiple people throughout the rest of the week that they saw this and they know it’s a lie. But, I know that I do my most focused work before lunchtime. Mornings and evenings (which isn’t to say I can’t do work in between, it’s just harder for me to concentrate).
Because I know this I try to schedule time to work on things in the mornings so that by lunchtime I can take a break. This way even if I get nothing done for the rest of the day at least I’ll have been a bit productive in the morning. Gotten done my small handful of things.
The problem with working in the morning — at least in college — is that no one else is ever awake to answer questions as you have them. You have to file things away so that you can call people later. This was especially problematic last week while I was trying to put together scripts at 10 am (not crazy early if I may point out) and the whole business was quite dependent on guests responding to me.
What’s a girl to do? Well, for the most part I just try to get things that require other people’s responses done in the evening time slot. That works. Sometimes.
