I’m up bright and early this morning as I have a couple of shop visits to complete before heading west to attend our board meeting. Straight after this I’m back in the office to talk to our marketing people and to be honest im hoping to get back to my hotel befor 10pm!
I’m a big fan of the West Wing tv series but I am always amazed out the characters are shown routinely wrote working well into the night and whilst it’s fiction you have to wonder how sleep deprived people are able to able to make key decisions without screwing them up. I have a rule of thumb that servers me well, after 6 pm I try and avoid doing anything that requires high levels of concentration. This may not suit everyone but given that I’m routinely at work at 7am it’s fair to say that I’m running out of steam by early evening!
