How to overcome working late night

0

In your experience, do you usually design during day or night? I personally prefer night. Em.. I can’t actually said that because I do design during day. It is just that the weather need to be cool.

Like in the morning (really in the morning) or almost dawn or during or after rain.

As if you didn’t know, Malaysia’s climate is normally hot. Just recently it rains quite often. So, that means right now I’m able to design during day. 😉

So this is my experience 3 years ago until last year (2011)

[toggle title_open=”I can’t design in hot weather – Close” title_closed=”I can’t design in hot weather – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

I’m not sure if it is to everybody of just me but I will never ever can design anything if the weather is hot. Therefore I had to work during night. As the weather will definitely cool and relaxing.

[toggle title_open=”And my brain will stop working if my body heated up! – Close” title_closed=”And my brain will stop working if my body heated up! – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

It is like my brain suddenly stopped from working when the weather get hotter. To put it even worse, I will feel sleepy and not so in-mood to do anything.

So what other choice that I have? I work during night.

[toggle title_open=”But stay up late night is bad habit and have consequences – Close” title_closed=”But stay up late night is bad habit and have consequences – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

I didn’t have any other choice as if I switch to day, I will be no productive in state not that I will do nothing but the result will sometimes become BAD, or lesser than the usual.

But one should know that human biological clock is set to sleep during night and awake during day. By any means that you try to switch this, your body will never will comply with it thus what happen to me is:

[toggle title_open=”I wake up late & feel sleepy the whole day – unproductive – Close” title_closed=”I wake up late & feel sleepy the whole day – unproductive – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

It is true that your job is your main priority to be a productive person but on the other side, you became one unproductive person that can’t enjoy your present especially for your love one.

[toggle title_open=”I left my family behind just for work – Close” title_closed=”I left my family behind just for work – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

I remember how I bring all my work back to my mom’s and doing the same thing every day and wasn’t spending a single time with my family during day (sleeping) and when they are asleep, my eyes wide opened and that’s the life I have. With my work.

So I ask myself, is this the kind of life that I want in the next 5 years. So I change.

[toggle title_open=”I’m able to work double & still enjoy my life! – Close” title_closed=”I’m able to work double & still enjoy my life! – Open” hide=”no” border=”no” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

What I did? I still have this phobia of cannot work in hot weather. But as to respect my human biological need, I’m now (since early 2013) do my designing work from 4AM until 11AM.

This is the best choice I’ve ever met actually. Not only I never sleep after Subuh anymore, I also can catch the calmness of the early morning Tahajjud.

I never feel fresher than now as I got a very good sleep and this rendered out the outcome of how I can double my quality time spend on my design.

So guys, I just think the best way to be productive is not working double the time until you have no time for your family. And most important, time for yourself. Enjoy the life you have in present not the life you wish in the future. In that way, you will make your work as part of your life schedule which seems to be playing along the flow. 😉
