I was listening to one of David's podcasts the other day and he says he uses first thing in the morning to do his creative thinking, being that you're the freshest and most alert.
Great idea, other than the fact I work for a large international corporate and as soon as I'm in the office need to handle and respond by email or phone to my colleagues in China and India - I'm in the UK.
This means at best it's mid-morning before I've finished this then need to make sure my team are still on track, which takes me to lunch time. I'm then left with the afternoon (if there are no fires that need putting out) to do the creative stuff - which by then I'm tired and sluggish.
On face value it seems like I have no choice in the matter, short of getting in at 5am. Therefore, before I give up on the idea of being creative in the morning, I'd be interested in soliciting views from the forum members.
