The clue is in the title really :) Are you a morning person or evening person or maybe something in between :p

When are you at your most productive?

For me it's nearly always around 10 pm at night when it's nice and quiet, the kids are in bed etc. I find I get much more done then than at any other point of the day.

What works for you?

If I'm in the office, I usually find after 4pm. Working from home, late evening's are best, once the wife and daughter are in bed. During the day, working from home was limited to 2 hours during the day while my daughter had her nap.

Between 2-6pm. It's when I'm least distracted. For some reason, it's also the time I least get the urge to do recreational things, so I rarely do anything but work during these hours. After dinner though productivity slumps a bit.

12-2pm, by far. After that I'm ready for my day to be over. I still get things done, but not at the same lightning pace.

I think in the evening you have the mentality of 'the day is a write off' I know if I don't have a productive burst in the mid afternoon the late afternoon and evening will be almost wasted.

I'm an early riser (5am most days!) so am most productive in the morning. After coffee of course :p

I also tend to get a second wind around 8pm and normally use that time to catch up on admin etc.

Exactly. By 5pm I consider the day over and the rest of the time essentially mine.

One the one hand though, I like getting things out of the way, but I am also more productive later than in the mornings. Especially 8am-12am, which is quite unproductive.

I'm definitely most productive in the morning. The earlier I get up, the better! I love the satisfaction of having the rest of the day mostly worry free, as I know I've gotten most things out of the way already.

Amen! I don't know what it is that makes us so productive early in the morning - you'd think we'd just be longing for bed! Never mind though, we'll take it :p

I couldn't sleep last night, so spent from 2am to 6am catching up on stuff, and got a LOT done due to the lack of distractions.

Early in the morning after having my cup of coffee I feel so active and positive.
