I tried working out in the morning a few times but gave up. I prefer to maximize sleep.
What time do you wake up for work? - Page 5
This makes sense. I suppose for those of you who are client-driven, you're not going to start working at the moment the clients start their day, so the there's going to be a delay.
Either way, I need to get one of those jobs, both because one of my career goals is in a client-driven field, and because I am not, by any stretch of the term, a morning person.
The people I knew who worked as analysts at ibanks didn't get up early either...they weren't so much associated with clients but it was still that the higher ups wouldn't have work to pass on to them until later in the day. None of them were in the office at 9AM on the regular...but of course most of them were still IN the office at 9PM on the regular.
I worked a 4am - 1pm shift many years ago, and I'd get to bed around 930-10. Once you get adjusted, it's not that bad.
I too am in bed usually by 10:00 p.m. and I'm one of those people who is asleep within a few minutes of my head hitting the pillow. Now that I have a DVR, I don't feel that I am missing out on anything by not being up later. lol Wednesday nights I'm in a bowling league so those are my late nights. I'm usually not in bed until about 11:00 p.m. It also helps that I work a 4/40 schedule so I am off on Fridays and if I don't have anything I need/want to do and I am overly tired, I can easily catch up on my sleep on Friday mornings.
This is why I hate the modern work culture. In 1975, your boss may be at the office by 6:40 but he won't be ruining your day until 9AM.
Up between 7-8 am depending on if I'm going on a jog or up with my kid. @ work by 9-9:15. Home between 4:30-5:30 depending on work / family / exercise schedules.
FYI for those of you getting sub 6 hours of sleep every night you're messing up your hormones / metabolism... If you're tossing stimulants like coffee on top of that you're probably going to be fucked down the line. Just saying
