    hi , I find that my best work is done in the morning , i seem much more productive then .so I normally aim to get up earlish . get on with all the stuff I want to do for the day . and then if the motivation or inclinaion drops I have already achieved something in the day . also this allows me to get on with other things like leisure

    This is a good point. I get more done in the morning when I am fresh as well. In the afternoon I may even take a power nap to recharge myt batteries and then I am able to be effective again.

    Yes, that is true. Most people work best at a particular time during the day

    I'm not a morning person at all even though I am at my fulltime job by 8:30 am. I work my home business primarily in the evening although I do sneak some work in on it while at my 9-5 gig. I cannot wait until I get to a point where I'm working my home business exclusively.

    I am also a morning person. I usually wake up pretty early to get started before my family is really up and going yet. Then I take a break through out the day to be with my kids. Then usually after they are in bed I am back at it again. I find that I do my best work in the morning though.

    I usually try to get started in the morning by 10 a.m. I post ads and check emails for a few hours, then I have lunch. I usually get back to work around 6 p.m. and i work until bout 9 p.m. That's my whole day in a nut shell.

    I am a morning person as well and I also prefer to rise early in the morning before the commotion in my home begins.

    I try to take a few breaks during the course of the day to re-focus but unfortunately I am not very consistent at it. It seems like I am always trying to push just a little longer to get something accomplished.

    I try to get most of the critical stuff done by noon. I almost always start by 6am. I work on and off until nine or ten at night - sometimes later.

    I like to alternate tasks to remain interested throughout the day. I also make it a point to vary my break activities. During my breaks, I like to work out, watch TV, call a friend, play an instrument, or run some errands. I thrive on variety.

    By the end of the day I've accomplished a lot of business tasks, tended to my health, socialized, made progress in hobbies, and more. I am quite mindful of striking a healthy balance. I can't imagine doing it any other way.

    This is a great point that not many talk about. My wife and I have been arguing for years because I work at night time instead of while she is at work, but I am much more creative and productive at night. I think we all have a time of day that we are most productive, its important to find that time.

    The evening time is my favourite time to work too. Im usually more productive then early morning. It is difficult if there are others sleeping while you work alright but the sound of typing on a keyboard isnt that loud, is it?

    Some people will like working at night, when everyone is asleep and it's peaceful and quiet (well, it also depends on where you live at as well)

    Some people like the morning sunshine and fresh air in the morning.

    There's a period of time when I enjoyed both, I worked from late afternoon to the next day 12.00pm. lol... It's really scary at night when it's all dead silence, around 4-6am.
