On a day when I have complete control over my time, which does not happen as often as I wish, I am most focused, most inspired, and most productive around 9 and 10 am in the morning.
I can surprise myself and channel my inner busy bee at other times in the day, but really, by afternoon, I’m much more in an eat-chocolate-and-wish-for-a-nap kind of mood.
I have several important projects on my plate this month, so I find myself wishing there was such thing as a day full of 9 am’s—me at my prime, knocking out the words, drinking coffee (hmm, there may be a correlation, coffee in the afternoon is never worth it, sigh), living the dream.
Perhaps I can’t have that, but I can still try to channel that 9 am energy every hour–that feeling that the entire day lies before me, and I am off to a good start.
And perhaps keep the Ghiradeli out of sight.

You should get a cheap clock to put down wherever you want to be productive and just always set it to 9am. Maybe you can trick yourself into having that 9am energy all day.

Ha! Your comment made me remember that years ago we got a clock made by a local artist that turned out to be a bit hard to set and sometimes hard to read, so I just put it in my office as art, and sure enough, it is always set to 9 am. Now I just need to remember to look at it! I will post a photo in my blog today in case you are curious to see it.
