What time is morning online???
Is it in UK time? Eastern Caribbean Time? Jamaican Time?
We go through our days not really questioning just what exactly it is we do all day. All my life I have been a late riser. If you see me at 5 am on any given day your best bet is that I have not slept a wink all night. If this post sounds a little biased now you know why.
Now in many industries getting work done is far more dependant on your team than it is on other factors. The time of day and where you do your work is far less important than 20 years ago. We have several tools now that help us to facilitate us working around the clock. We no longer have to wait for the team meeting to get everyone in the same room to get work done. Simple example in times gone by we needed to be in a room with our colleagues to put a document together. Today though Google docs can facilitate this collaboration along a perpetual team meeting where people can make changes and add their comments at their convenience.
Here is a list of tools of some of the tools that is enabling this phenomenon to happen.
- Online collaboration tools (such as Google Docs)
- Online project management systems (such as Basecamp)
- online banking
- and more in your arsenal.
….Yeah I know I can hear you saying it.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise.
I would shoot back .. What time is early? I would agree its very important to be early when you are working on your projects. But what time of the day is "early". Being proactive and pushing your work ahead is always good.
One major thing though, so many of us just love Rush Hour feeling. The thrill and excitement of rushing out the door. We are addicted to it.
I guess we do what makes sense.
Live Life, Work Smartly
