Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

ďWhen you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am
with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you
can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand
between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me.Ē

Frederick Buechner
(b. 11 July 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Does Ray Charles ever sing to you, or is it just me? There's no midi today, so just let him sing to you, too.

From http://www.pickthebrain.com/blog/how-to-be-a-highly-productive-night-owl/:

How To Become a Highly Productive Night Owl
 

Being an early riser has its benefits, but it isnít for everyone. Some of humanityís greatest minds (Voltaire for example) were renowned for sleeping in. Depending on personality, environment, and work schedule, being an early riser may not be practical.

A few months ago I gave early rising a try. I was able to wake up 1-1.5 hours earlier, but I couldnít adjust to the early bed time. Each night around 10:00, no matter how tired Iíd felt that day, my mind became active and I was unable to shut down until after 12:00. After a few weeks, sleep deprivation set in and I went back to my normal sleep pattern.

For those of us who experience a late night surge of mentally activity, waking before 6 a.m. can lead to exhaustion. Sleep schedule depends on many factors and is subject to change, but itís important to find what works for you. Fortunately, those of us who arenít suited to early rising can be just as productive by utilizing those quiet evening hours.

Late rising isnít automatically beneficial. It has a negative connotation because, if poorly managed, sleeping late leads to perpetual grogginess and wasted days. Here are few strategies Iíve developed for effective late rising.

Donít Over Sleep

The biggest temptation with late rising is to over sleep. Too much sleep is a bad thing. Rather than feeling more rested, it makes you lethargic. Having a regular wake up time is just as important for night owls as it is for early risers. If you donít set a schedule, youíll have a hard time being productive.

Donít Sleep Too Late

Along the same lines, Iíve found that late rising is best in moderation. Sleeping until mid-afternoon can ruin an entire day. It throws off your biological clock, leaving you mentally dull, and makes it harder to get to sleep at a reasonable hour the following night. For me, the ideal wake up time is between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. This gives me a chance to get the 6-8 hours of sleep that I need without oversleeping or losing too much of the day.

Set a Cut Off Time

The challenge with being productive at night is that itís hard to wind down. This can lead to late nights that throw off your schedule. The way to manage this is setting a cut off time. I set my cut off time for an hour before bed time, usually around 11:00-11:30. After the cut off time I stop working and wind down. I switch to mentally relaxing activities like minor household chores and light reading. Iíd also recommend avoiding television and the computer completely. The brightness of the screen can trick your brain into thinking itís day. Although there will always be those nights when I ride a rush of creativity until 3:00 or 4:00 a.m., itís better to make that the exception.

Schedule Around Your Energy Cycle

To maximize productivity itís important to leverage the natural peaks of your energy cycle. Late rising works best for people who peak in the evening. If this is the case, you should create a schedule that lets you work at night. Iíve found mid-mornings to be productive, so Iíve built my schedule around a morning and evening shift.

After getting up around 8:00 or 9:00, I eat breakfast and work for 3-4 hours. By early afternoon my energy fades and I switch from creative work to less demanding tasks like responding to email, reading feeds, and running errands. Around 8:00 p.m. I have another energy peak and work the night shift until my cut off time at 11:00. Although it can be tough to schedule around a 9-5 job, you can probably figure out a way to take advantage of your evening energy peak by working from home or on side projects.

Take Advantage of Distraction Free Evenings

Early risers rave about the productivity of the wee morning hours before the rest of us wake up. Late risers have a similar advantage on the other end. By working in the evening we can avoid the distractions of meetings, email, and other demands. For me, the evening is when Iím able to break free from the outside world and immerse myself in mentally challenging work. Some people canít concentrate at night, but Iíve found itís the easiest time get into creative work flow without interruption.

Itís all about finding what works best for you. As a night person in his early 20′s with roommates who tend to keep late hours, I found early rising problematic. As I get older and my living situation evolves, itís entirely possible Iíll join the 5 a.m. club. Until then Iíll continue to take pride in being a highly productive night owl.

Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

Recorded by
Ray Charles (23 Sept 1930 - 10 June 2004), 1984
 

Do I ever cross your mind
Darlin' do you ever see
Some situation somewhere, somehow
Triggers your memory
And do you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do you ever want to know
If all dreams go on endlessly
Or do they just run down
Somehow and gradually become
The custody of that melancholy jailer father time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
Do I ever cross your mind
uninvited - when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do I ever cross your mind
Uninvited when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
