    Thanks for the great article! You bring up a lot of great points… I recognize a few areas where i can do a self-correct. I am going to put pen to paper and start mapping out my plan while discovering my peak performance time…. and then I will take a power nap so I can be ready to do some more!

    Thanks again!

    Hey Melissa,

    Since you recognize your pattern to fall of on the third day I believe that you should take that third day to renew and recharge, and plan accordingly. We all need to take a day each week to ourselves to reflect, and review, as well as recharge. A day to take care of you, rest is essential to your productivity :-D.

      That is a lovely idea but the world doesn’t allow it! Perhaps I just need to redesign mine, lol.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Hi Melissa,

    I think this may be horses for courses! I am a Night Owl when it comes to IM. Having said that I have huge bursts of activity (19hr+) – and of being in the Zone! My average day is 12-13hours. I vary from power naps to having a massive 13hr recovery sleep. Variety is the spice of life! Still not everyone’s lifestyle gives them that flexibility which may mean they have to operate to a stricter schedule. Horses for courses!
    Loved your ‘Fruit’ analogy!

    Kind Regards

      Thanks Jeannette!

      Wow, 19 hours, I yearn for the day . . . used to be like that when I first began in design some 20 years ago. In process of rekindling my fire and finding my spark. I’ll get there again.

      Hugs, Melissa

  4. Love this post — great reminder that it’s o.k. to go to the beat of your own drum, and your own biorythms!

      Absolutely Ashley,

      Different strokes for different folks applies. Always best to honor what lies within us than fight to conform to what lies without.

      Hugs, Melissa
