My work hours are definitely different at home. But in a good way. I dare to take breaks when I feel like it and on the other hand I let the flow flow once I‘m in it :) I don‘t mind writing text copies until late at night when I feel inspired and productive. Especially when I know that I can then in return take it easy the next morning or next time I lack inspiration. I really enjoy this way of working 😊
I experimented with different approaches. It depends on the kind of activity I'm currently engaged in. If I am in product building/marketing mode, then the focus goes to completing the work rather than following a certain schedule. If I am in studying/learning mode, then working hours look more balanced.
@jan_mazurek haha I just meant I work on it almost all waking hours. I was going off what Cica asked so I was not sure I understood the timetable either but I just was trying to say I am always working on it!
My working hours are flexible. I really like to work remotely - you may do things at home, in a cafe, in the park. Changing location really helps not to procrastinate. But I track my time with a tracker and control how much time I am working. It should be at least 35 hours per week.
For me it really depends on my motivation and my energy level. If I have a rather low energy level, I prefer to go out and work from the office or a library. When I have a good energy level I love working from home and dive into the tunnel. At home I'm less distracted compared to the office, where everyone can disturb you at any given time. However, the perfect way to go for me is to have a couple of days during the week in the office and a couple of days at home :)
It varies, but I typically begin at around 9-10 am, and unless I'm working with West Coast clients, finish around 6 pm. It is highly variable though, but most importantly (regardless of working from home or elsewhere), I ensure regular breaks to get out, walk, do something creative, or have fun. It's important to do so for strong mental health.
I work in cycles. I would say the first one 9am-1pm, the second 3-5pm and the last one 6-9pm, I found it the best approach that suits me, so that I actually do the things which need high brain activity in the first cycle and the administrative things in the second cycle and the other things that require high brain activity in the third cycle.
I worked on a life-work regime for a long time and eventually came to the 8-5 formula. But this is personalized - for example, my maximum productive hours are from 8 to 12, after that I can do the routine. After 5 pm I can no longer work and prefer to rest
@stas_voronov Yes, my productive hours are 10 am to 8 pm for my clients. I am very curious also it is very difficult to manage time at home but it is manageable and easy. This is good to work here. https://Cleanthese.com
