Working at Night

There is an inverse correlation between the number of hours we work and the effects it has on our lives.

Studies point out that 40% of people are working at night (after 10 PM.) The same studies show that knowledge workers are only productive for 2 hours and 48 minutes a day (working on their most important tasks).

Time Management

  • Turn off work devices before 10 PM and tuck them away. It is about making it difficult for yourself to work.
  • Put books everywhere in your house. Make it harder to work at night and easier to read.
  • Use sleep mode, if this option is available to you. Since most of us want our phones available for emergencies, use sleep mode on; it locks your screen and doesn't display any notifications.

One of Aesop's fables is about the race between the tortoise and the rabbit.

In life, we have both inside us. One urges you to go fast; the other to go slow, but steady. Sprinting at times is good, but we should not think we can always rely on our speed as we will burn out. We achieve more by making a little progress every day.
