Making time your own

There's an interesting quote on how you use your time on the 37signals blog that I can relate to.

It's very true that we are very much forced to conform into a world of schedules that frankly ignore the fact that we're all wired very differently. I can probably attribute 75% of my distaste for day jobs to being on a schedule that isn't mine. (The rest is working on something I don't have my heart in.)

I don't like getting up early most of the time, unless it's to do something special or travel (or crack the gate at IOA). I often do my best work late, and it feels good every once in awhile to just work my ass off until 4 a.m., something I haven't done in a very long time.

I like that the text mentions eating as well, which is another thing that schedules interfere with. I tend to like to eat lunch and dinner a little earlier, especially if I don't have breakfast. And I still haven't mastered eating "right" in a you're-at-work-and-not-in-your-kitchen situation.

We all have to work. That's just a condition of society I suppose. I'm OK with that, but it's the structure that I find so difficult. I can't seem to be domesticated entirely.

Alas, I guess I'll figure it out eventually.
