Young professionals striving to get more done in less time have always tried to crack the productivity code. The idea of getting more done, faster, is a seductive one.
Here’s a secret of highly productive entrepreneurs and creatives: they respect their ultradian rhythm. You’re probably familiar with the term circadian rhythm, which describes the cycles of waking and sleeping. Ultradian rhythm refers to recurrent physical cycles that extend to the high and low tides of your energy levels. Focusing on your ultradian rhythm is an untapped yet powerful way to work with your body’s natural tides of energy and get more done.
