When are you most productive?
Most people would say they are most productive in the morning. But don’t be so sure. A study by the IZA Institute of Labor Economics came to the conclusion that, despite popular belief, many people are at their most productive point in the workday at 1:30pm. That’s right. Just after lunch, exactly when most of us think we’re LEAST productive. Some experts believe this may be more accurate for younger members of the workforce, and because older employees tend to go to bed earlier and get up earlier, their peak hours may be slightly earlier than lunchtime, but generally not as early as they may have guessed.
Are you like me? Most productive when you realize it’s 15 minutes until quitting time and you’ve spent the last 2 hours organizing your bottom desk drawer?
