Time Saving Tip: Match your task to your natural energy level.

When planning your day, or deciding what to do throughout the day, take into consideration your natural energy highs and lows. It’s more efficient to do some tasks during certain times of day than others. Some of your tasks require you to be at the top of your game…and some tasks can be done well even when you’re in an energy lull. Here are some examples.

Morning is my golden writing hour. Ideas flow more freely, and therefore, I’m a much more efficient (and entertaining) writer when I write in the morning. The afternoon hours are better for tasks that require action and interaction—for tasks that allow me to get up and move around or interact with other people. The afternoon is an ideal time for me to schedule organizing appointments with clients or to do repetitious tasks such as emptying the dishwasher or folding a load of laundry.
