re: That sounds like a really good way to burn out really quickly...

Sometimes life just makes it work that way. Say you've got kids, a family you want to spend time with, bills to pay, deadlines to meet, hobbies to enjoy... You've got to get the work done early so you can spend your free time with family on their schedule, or doing whatever it is you want to do.

I typically work before the sun is up to early afternoon so I can spend afternoons with friends or exploring while the sun is still shining. It's all about what time of day you want to be your free time and when you want to sleep.

Nice points, Josh.

Noah, it's not about burning out. I have plenty of downtime. But at my latitude (54.5 degrees) is very difficult to get moving when the days are short. Almost everyone here is affected to some degree and if it's really bad you get a SAD diagnosis.

I read the New York has 10 times more SAD that Florida and I live hundreds of miles north of New York so it follows the we'd have much more SAD here.

But at my latitude (54.5 degrees) is very difficult to get moving when the days are short.

I saw this and thought 'is that like Alaska or something?'

Much more mundane - it's Newcastle-upon-Tyne!

It's as far north as I'd ever live. The darkness in the winters is really hard on me.

The bulk of Alaska is North of 60 degrees.
