I dont think i can work in the night either i just feel too sleepy and dont get much done. So basically i work best during the day!! What about you when do you work at your best?

I surely do many things better at night...ahahhaha, coz i used to 'burn the midnight oil', hahhahah, i can feel that my brain is clearer at night, and it's more quite at night to concentrate ^_^

+1, I'm a night owl:) In addition to being more quiet, I prefer to work at night because you have way less chances of being interrupted for any reason (phone, IM, door, etc). It's a very gratifying feeling when you get in your groove, in the zone, and can accomplish a lot of work at night, in peace.

It's very ironic that in my line of work, we are always in the graveyard shift. I've been contemplating on this, thanks for the question, and I know that I work better in the morning. At night, I really thing a lot and it's usually the best time for leisure for me. I've compared my night job to previous day jobs I had and I was more productive and more motivated to work during daytime. I'm kinda used to working at night though. But of course, if given the chance to work again during the day, I would take that opportunity. Take care.

Cool yeah once you get used to it i guess you get good at whatever it is you do. But there are certain times of the day you would prefer to work and your mind and body is fully working.

I cannot work in the morning or night because im either to tired or to sleepy. If i try to work at night then i get to tired and bored and instead go to sleep. In the morning i cant work cause i wake up to late and have to go to school instead. So id say that the best time to work is in the day where i can actually complete my assignments and not get in trouble by my teachers. :)

i work better in the morning. i'm a morning person so i do activities very well during the morning. at night, only a small amount of energy is left so i don't perform really well during the night.

I think I work better in the morning, partly because I lead a orderly life, never stay up late at night or oversleep, I often have a high spirit when I get up, partly because morning is the beginning of the day, full of hope and possibilities.

I work better in the early morning that's why I like to sleep early like about 10pm I will go to bed and wake up around 6.30am. I like the morning atmosphere as well, nice quiet, fresh air. So I am a morning person

I work best after i have a good sleep. If you feel really sleepy, why not just go to have a sleep. After a good sleep, i think you will work more effectively.

The time to work very fits to me when it is sunny day... But actually it doesn't matter on what time we do our job but it depends on either we enjoy it or not...

in the mroning you could still do work but you will be a litlle sleppy. in the day, you will be better off. the best time is at the night because you will have no distractions

I always work better at night time. That is when I am the most creative and can think and have more energy too. I do not feel very much energy in the mornings. My husband is just the opposite. He is great in the mornings. He wakes up on his own at about 6:00am every day and likes to go to sleep by 10:00pm. On the other hand I like to get up about 10:00am at the earliest (if I don't have anything to do that day) otherwise it is 7:00am. And I don't get sleepy until at least 1:00am. I have always been this way. It is so hard for me to get going before 12:00pm no matter what time I wake up. Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

I work better at night-time. At the moment I'm finishing my master-thesis and during my education-period I've noticed that I can concentrate better when it's dark outside, my boyfriend is asleep and I'm a little bit tired. During the day I get distracted a lot, so I think that's the reason I can work better at night. The best ideas I also have late, sometimes even in the middle of the night! I just wake up, think about something and that the answer to a problem I'm struggeling with. But at the moment that doesn't happen a lot (whish it would!). I always need to write it down then, because in the morning I've forgot it. A few years ago I had a teacher who also worked a lot at night, so when I mailed her my assignments I received answers like: "hey, I didn't knew you liked to work at night too!". So I know I'm not the only one, hihi!

I am not a morning person. My brain function effectively if it is noon or close to evening already. If I have to think of a plan or solve a problem or even review for an exam, I will get a long sleep till morning then work myself from noon till midnight. I am use to this routine that's why when I reviewed for my licensure exam, I was awake in the night and sleeping in the morning.

I am a night owl, I can focus my attention easily in the night, so most of my meanful works are done at that period. I cannot do as wonderful work in the morning. So Usually I use the morning time to do some preparation. In that way, my night work can runs more faster. Though my mom doed not like my way to lead my life, I think it is Ok.

Hello shyamzy18 I prefer to work in the early morning as becoz the weather is pleasant ,silence prevails in and around and the most & effective ingredient is fresh mind. In the morning hrs fresh ideas can come out. In the night hrs I feel tried and sleepy so it is not possible for me to work in the night hrs. pkc3000
