Trading hours

I've been one to stay up late, as needed in the past. In school it was procrastination. In more recent years it's probably just overcommitment.

However, now, I think it's better to go to bed early and get up early. You know, like an 80-year-old. If the sun (in DC) can get a full 8 hours of rest even during its short nights in the summer, it may be a good schedule year-round.

For me, it's simply a matter of thinking quality differences at different hours of the day. I'd take one early morning hour over three evening hours any day of the week. They're equally productive. They're not equally efficient.

I once worked in a kitchen job that was largely evening-based. One day I was needed in a morning, and came in then instead. About a half hour in, my boss says to me, “You're really talkie this morning.”

What was so interesting about that to me was that I felt I was just as “talkie” then as I was in the evenings, but apparently that was not the case. My mind just had more going on to talk about in the morning than in the evening.

Mornings are better all-around for some of us.
