I’m interrupting this week of book reviews to ask for sources for another Fast Company post. I’m writing about productivity for night owls. Much of the world is set up to reward early birds. School starts early (so parents and kids need to be up for the bus) and workplaces have that first meeting around 8. So if you’re not a morning person, how do you structure your life to still use your productive hours, and deal with the world as it is?
I welcome strategies from night owls. I’d also like to know why you consider yourself a night owl — how do you define that? As always, please email me at [email protected]. As an example, a night owl parent married to a lark might split who handles the kids at what time. The lark does the morning routine, the night owl does the evening routine. If you live relatively close to work, you might be able to wake up after 8 and still get there by 9. Waking up at 8 can allow for after-midnight bedtimes. Thanks!
