I recently started watching the Netflix show, House Of Cards and in episode 1 Kevin Spacey’s character Frank J. Underwood has a great quote.
“I never make such big decisions so long after sunset and so far from dawn.”
What an eloquent way to just say that you need to sleep on it. I tend to work around the clock but I try to follow this advice. If there is an important email or decision to be made, I don’t do that at 1AM. More than likely that question or issue will be there in the morning. I’m not dealing with anything life or death here and knowing when to shut down for the day and taking the time to weigh a decision is important.
