What’s Your Peak Time?

My career is a pretty standard 9-5 (which usually goes 7-5) with some flexibility in my weekly schedule. I usually work from my home office once per week and have an offsite client meeting once a week as well. The problem is that this is not an ideal schedule for me to produce in my peak hours.

I tend to do my best work and have the highest motivation levels sometime between 10:30pm and 2:00am. As you can imagine, this does not bode well for my sleep patterns when I have the alarm set for 5:33am. (I choose 5:33 because it allows me to snooze 3 times at 9 minutes per snooze and wake up at 6:00am.) Trust me, living off 4 hours sleep can work for a while but only because I sleep on the train going to work. It’s good for me; not so good for the person sitting next to me.
