I often work 12+ hours per day and sometimes I've been working for about 17-18 hours too.. And if we think about it, most freelancers I know are working somewhere between 10 and 12 hours per day. - It's very common.
However, lately I've been thinking about working less. Not only due to the hours I'm working but also due to the fact that I'm working from one day to the next. I've barely worked starting on a Monday and stopped working on the same day. I usually stop working on Tuesday. I literally work around the clock.
That being said, I've been doing this because I've felt comfortable with it. I like the late hours and I believe that I work more effective during the late hours. - But is that really the truth?
I don't know, and I'm interested in finding out the most efficient time for me to work. - That's why I'm willing to try to work after a schedule. So I work for about 8 hours per day instead. And do it more like a "day job" so to speak.
The thing is, that it's tricky to change something I've been doing for years. I've been able to change it for about 1 or 2 days at the most, and then I'm back in the same routine again. - What do you think? - It's November. It's dark outside and we all need some sort of daylight to feel good. - Do you think it's better to have an actual work schedule and work the hours you would work if you had a day job?
Some would say that it's smarter to work that way.. - Why would that be the smarter choice?
