It’s nearly impossible to improve your productivity without establishing one important piece of groundwork: You first need to take stock of how well you manage your time, attention, and energy already.

You’re probably already aware that your energy levels can fluctuate quite a bit over the course of the day.
If you’re an early bird, you have more energy early in the morning. If you’re a night owl, you have more energy late at night. After you drink a coffee, you may feel a sudden energy boost and then a crash later on. And if you’re like many people, your energy levels may tank in the early afternoon, following a spike after a large lunch.
