Today I am starting to work on a planned schedule. I realized that I needed some structure in order to be more productive.

So my schedule will be :

from 10am to 1:30pm .. then I eat .. then from 2pm to 6pm ..

And I allow myself 30 min of random stuff on the computer .. from 10am to 10:30 … like I am doing now :)

5 days of work .. 2 days of rest ..

What do you guys do?

I thought it was a team of people? Otherwise, he is definitely a robot and/or superhero.

Nice thread. I’m interested in knowing what everyone’s schedule is like too. I’ve recently started to try and get a solid schedule to help boost productivity. I find it’s tough to shut everything down at a specific time though.

I’m up between 6:00-6:30 every morning. Respond to support while sipping coffee until about 8am. Then I’ll take an hour and a half to get ready for the day and walk to dog. Then it’s work time, baby! I’ll shut down around 5pm. Friday is a half day and Saturday is a full day off.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Productivity is a subject that really appeals to me and one in which, ironically, I spend a lot of time reading about, studying theories & best practises.. and I’ve tried time and again to establish a schedule for myself but in reality I’ll never be able to stick to one.. my body & mind just do not work to a schedule..

So for me, instead of clocking the hours I pay attention to my energy levels and let my mood dictate my working day.. energy management > time management.. and part of this is making sure that I’m getting good sleep and eating properly which are two things that are really making a difference for me lately. More sleep + good food = higher energy levels & enthusiasm for my work..

Good thread :)

The reason I decided to start working for myself was because I didn’t want a strict schedule so I tend to be quite flexible. The only real constant is that I try to get all support emails out of the way first thing in the morning because that’s the thing I enjoy least. After that I work on new items off and on until as late as 1 or 2am. I usually create lists of tasks that need to be done then at the beginning of the day choose a few that I can realistically get done.

Exactly. One of the benefits of being a freelancer is that you decide when to work or not so by making a strict schedule is shooting yourself in the foot. Pushing yourself to be more focused during the day is a different thing though.

I like Eugene’s way of doing things though. Support in the morning, choose a couple things you can realistically do during the day, and get to it.
