Match your mental state



Whether you’re a writer or not the below applies really to a lot of domains of learning and creating.


Check this from Scott Adams, author of “How to fail at almost anything and still win big”


“One of the most important tricks for maximizing your productivity involves matching your mental state to the task. For example, when I first wake up, my brain is relaxed and creative. The thought of writing a comic is fun, and it’s relatively easy because my brain is in exactly the right mode for that task. I know from experience that trying to be creative in the midafternoon is a waste of time. By 2:00 P.M. all I can do is regurgitate the ideas I’ve seen elsewhere. At 6:00 A.M. I’m a creator, and by 2:00 P.M. I’m a copier.”


How about you? Where do you fit on that continuum of time?


Where are you most apt for learning?


“Everyone is different, but you’ll discover that most writers work either early in the morning or past midnight. That’s when the creative writing juices flow most easily.” (Adams)


Given you are a ‘writer’ of your potential the above applies.


Figure out your best times + maximize on it.


With ARETE,
