How to Maximize the 2 Most Productive Hours of the Day

Posted on November 25, 2014

This week, Ariely conducted an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit where he revealed that generally people are most productive during the first two hours after becoming fully awake.

Unfortunately, most people's morning routines and work schedules are not designed to maximize this bright-and-early potential. The first things we cross off our list in the mornings are the mindless tasks to prepare for the day ahead.

Following Ariely's suggestion means that you shouldn't waste the first two hours of the day reading the newspaper, checking Twitter, waiting in line for coffee, or driving into the office.

Instead, at the end of the day create a task list for the following morning so you can get to it and tackle it as soon as the coffee kicks in. If you drive to work, see if you can spend the first two hours working from home. You will not only beat the morning rush hour traffic, but will also get the chance to get the most urgent tasks done before even stepping into the office.
