Peak productivity

When do you feel most creative?

Didn't find your answer?

You should be your peak creativity (that's if you're reading this at around 11am). 

Yes, according to new research, accountants feel they're most creative at 11am. The research also found things like colourful walls, break out spaces and a quiet office inspires a more creative environment.  

So, do you have all your innovative ideas in the morning. Or does productivity and inspiration come later on in the day?

Surely if this is the most productive time for accountants we shouldn't see many responses as they won't be on AWeb...

For me it comes and goes randomly throughout the day. Nothing worse than when your brain starts working just before bed time and you get to think about tax whilst staring into the darkness.

Not 11am - that's why I start thinking about lunch!

Usually before 9am when there's no one in the office and no clients calling.

Or the time between Christmas and NYE, again, when the office is empty and more often than not I have a lot of tax returns to do. Nothing like a bit of time pressure to focus the mind.

Agree with Bernard - usually around 10.30pm after a few pints. 'Creativity' ideas are then at their peak, some good, some bad.............

To me it is primarily about how well I sleep. In my late 40 and early 50s I developed some really bad sleep patterns. My top personal priority from a health perspective more recently has been to get rid of my insomnia (much of which I done) and if I manage to sleep really well (which does happen now, but not every day) then I am productive all day.

Otherwise I am normally productive in the morning, but that fails in the early afternoon, but picks up again about 5pm.
