Sometimes our routine promotes procrastination because the time we’ve allotted to a task is a time when our energy is low. Highly productive people hone their routines to take advantage of their body’s natural rhythms. To design one that works for you, take stock of:
- your body’s rhythms of energy and alertness;
- the type of work that you do, and level of energy each kind demands;
- the limits of your physical powers and how to recharge them.
