I’ve recapped some of the material from this site in a new piece in The Huffington Post as part of their Great Work Cultures series, posing one of the most important questions of all: How Do You Work Best?
When do you work best? Is it between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.? Or do you perhaps have the clearest head at 7 a.m. and trouble focusing in the afternoon? Is it only on Monday through Friday? Or do you sometimes struggle to think straight on Mondays, but have great ideas on Saturdays?
Where do you work best? Is it while sitting at the desk you’ve been assigned? Or would you be better suited to a different environment—one that’s quieter, or busier, or closer to home?
