Shifting hours

Timezones a shit.

Working remote brings its own set of challenges. Working remote for a company on the other side of the world brings even more. Timezones are a bit of a logistical nightmare, I find it quite impressive global business and communication happens as smoothly as it does. For me, I’m only dealing with two distinct timezones, so it’s manageable. My hours are flexible too, and communication is done partly asynchronously anyway. Still, I feel it’s good to be at least available during office hours.

That means shifting my circadian rhythm so that I can still be awake and productive past midnight. I’m no stranger to night-work, but do notice my performance dropping off the later it gets. Hopefully “sleeping in” and going to bed “late” consistently will help fix that. That’s how it works, right? It’s not like the sun has any influence on this, right? Right?

You might see some more tardy posts because of this, but it’s not like I had a set time anyway.

    I think the sun is an important factor, and is the reason why I’ve never been able to sleep well. Time zones can be shit but I pretty much live on American time and serve American clients, so it’s never been much of an issue for me.
