Because the way we live and work isn’t great.
Everyone has a different chronotype
, and that means everyone has a different set of “prime time” hours in which to do their best work each day.
For me, I do my best work between 10 am and 2 pm. After that, everything I produce is shit. Unless I’m high, of course, but we’re talking about work here, people! We do not get stoned during the workday!
I mean, unless your stomach hurts…Then you have a legit medical excuse to get high. (That’s how I got my medical marijuana card here in NY! Thanks, Overly Sensitive Jew Stomach! I’m just pissed it took me twenty or so years to figure out I just had to smoke weed to calm you down.)
Thanks to “Deep Work”, I was able to figure out when I do my best work. Now I guard that time like I’ve possessed the One Ring for the last sixty years and don’t want to give it to my dumbass nephew.
I can’t recommend this book enough. Read it. Then power through Why We Sleep
and put the two together. It’ll change your life.
