Are there such things as Day Owls or can we just describe ourselves as “Owls”?
Anyway, I do sometimes change it up and get up early but for the most part, midnight to 4am is my most productive time. My Fiverr work hours have changed a lot in the last few months, going from 3-5 up to 8-10 daily, if I only count billable work hours.
Turn off your phone at night and leave it in another room. I used to do the same when I started here but found it doesnt make any real difference to sales when I wait til the next day to respond.
Never make the mistake of confusing being “busy” with being “productive”.
You will likely find you do more in 4 hours after good sleep than you do in 8 hours after no/bad sleep. I aim for 8-10 hours/night unless I have specific projects I need to work on that cut into that time.
I do around 3 - 4 hours of billable work a day, but I am also an inveterate insomniac. That said, I only tend to work between 8AM and 6PM as I like having clear boundaries between my work life and my personal life. As @eoinfinnegan said, leave your phone in another room. Quality of sleep makes an enormous difference to quality of work
Awww, it’s nice to be missed! My non-Fiverr workload has reduced to a sane level again, so I am spending more time on Fiverr… Who knows, I might even post on the forums again a bit… I actually got to a state close to euphoria last Friday when I realized I did not have any work due in the next week… It’s the first time that has happened for around three months. It’s great to be busy, but I had forgotten what not working felt like.
Didn’t say you were missed
I am the opposite - Fiverr work has been flying and off-Fiverr work is slow.
So you are gonna be here procrastinating with us for the next week?
I nominate you to create the next fun/funny/entertaining thread.
I’m available always to get work done and fulfill client/customer requests, but I try to check Fiverr first thing in the morning when I get up to begin work. If I have gig orders I prefer to work on them in the morning and maybe across the afternoon. I do a lot of crafting, arting and writing, so my time is spent among all of that. I’m always busy and my schedule is crammed. Staying up to 2am is standard, unless I can’t keep my eyes open.
