Four-Hour Creativity Limit

Many motivational speakers have mentioned the three to four hour biological limit of creative work that can be accomplished in a day.

Great polymaths and thinkers highlight this short amount of working hours when the creative juices flow.

Manual labour, which is mostly assembly line work, or mindless administrative chores like creating reports can be done for far longer.

Writing in reverse is simple: You have to reverse the roles of the writer (you) with the recipient (your audience).

Writing in reverse is emotionally intelligent--because it helps you develop your empathy muscle. In addition, it keeps you from letting emotions dictate your message, as was the case in my situation. But by taking a pause, I was able to calm down first, so I could give a more balanced reply--one that wouldn't actually make the situation worse.
