It’s those last couple hours when you’re tired, unfocused and stressed that really take the biggest toll…
Because staying late keeps you away from your family, your friends, your hobbies and of course, sleep. These are the things that inspire and recharge us.
And between you and me, we both know you don’t get shit done in that last hour anyway.
Pound for pound, 8 am – 9 am is a way more productive hour than 7 pm to 8 pm. If I’m a client, I want to pay for your good hours* at the beginning of the day, not your scattered, burnt out ones at the end. Do us all a favor, and go home.
“Leave For The Day When The Signal Is Weak.” – Austin Kleon (I think)
*The reverse may be true, maybe your good hours aren’t in the morning, and you’re more focused at night. Same point though.
