Prime Time

When is your best time of day, morning or afternoon? When does your energy level allow you to get more done, make better decisions and deal with stress in the most effective manner?

If you are a morning person psychologists call you a lark; afternoon and evening people are known as owls. The biological name is circadian rhythms.

If you know when your best times are it makes you very powerful. Scheduling planning sessions, difficult conversations, and high-energy project work for your prime time means you are using your energy more effectively. At your prime time you set higher goals for yourself; you think and talk faster.

There is a wonderful quote from the book, Full Engagement: "Energy is the fundamental currency for high performance."

If you want to operate at your peak you have to know when that peak occurs.
