  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Saturday - Productivity at home is much more important to me than productivity at work.

    Friday, because a lot of people in my office either telecommute or have 9/80 schedules, or just take vacation/sick days on Fridays a lot. So there are just less people around to interrupt me and I can get more done.

    We have a policy of not scheduling meetings on Thursdays. It's not 100% perfect but the meetings are fewer to non-existent on Thursdays so it's the most productive.

    The morning hours are also most productive for me because I come in a couple of hours before others do so I can get a bunch of stuff done before I start getting interrupted. I used to have IM up but I was getting interrupted so often that I have a note: "IM is up for 5 interruptions then closed" as my message.

    I keep track of my tasks in a database for yearly reviews among other things and find I log more hours on Wednesdays. Which doesn't necessarily make it more productive :)

    Seriously. Its frustrating. I try to not work too late cause I want to see my kids before bedtime but right around 4PM is when I get this big rush of energy. It was great in college and when I was single but now it just creates conflict in my life. So I'm stuck between wanting to stay and work or head out the door.
