“Uh oh, it’s happening again.”
Even though it’s midnight and I’m exhausted I can’t sleep. I keep thinking of ideas for blog posts and articles.
“I wonder, should I keep staring at the clock and hope that I’ll fall asleep? Or, should I give in and get up?”
If you’re involved in a creative profession, then the previous scenario has probably already happened to you. Not only are you taking work home with you (I work from home so my work is alway here anyway), but you’re taking it to bed with you.
I think it’s an occupational hazard. How you deal with it depends on your personality.
For my part, I feel that there’s a high risk of making a mistake when I’m tired. For that reason I try to avoid doing client work late at night.
Blogging, on the other hand, is something that I might risk when I’m tired. Especially when it’s my own blog.
What about you? How are you sleeping?
