Hi, my name is Monice and I used to be a night owl.
It’s funny. I was just talking about this other day with a friend.
We were lamenting how back in our college days, we both attended school full-time, held down two jobs and could write into the wee hours of the morning only to get a few hours a sleep and hit the ground running the next day and do it all over again.
Thanks to recently turning 40, these days, my brain turns to mush after 10pm, so burning the midnight oil is no longer an option for me. Instead, because I write best creatively when I’m sleepy — I don’t know why — I force myself to get up at 6 a.m. every morning to write for a couple of hours before I start my work day.
Fam, I gotta admit that getting up early every day now, I totally get the adage of the early bird getting the worm. I’m focused, productive and am getting more done.
But…I miss my night owl ways.
So, curious to find out if there were any night owlers out there making it do what it do successfully, I stumbled upon this article – What Successful Night Owls Get Done Before Bed.
Maybe you can find some productivity tips here to adapt to your night owlish ways. I know I did. 🙂
Fam, it’s been said that success is easier before breakfast, but does that mean that night owls are at a disadvantage? What are your thoughts?
