    I feel the same way. I always feeling really enthusiastic about doing a side-project when it gets really close to go to bed-time. I usually just say ‘If I start this now I’ll be up until 5am’, so I tell myself that tomorrow evening I’m definitely going to work on this side-project. Then I just feel tired in the evening because I’ve just finished work or have just eaten.

    I guess the key is to either get up really early or go to bed really late. Otherwise maybe power naps (15 minutes maximum) are the answer to staying energised.

      I think you're on to something Shane. Sometimes I forget that it takes time to grow!

      Have you heard of the book called "Execute"? I think you should really read it. The author states that you should always act immediately when you are in the state of actually trying to do something. You will get more done because you're already in the zone. If you postpone it you might not feel it anymore when you get back to it later. It's natural. We can't just recreate the emotions out of nothing.

      I totally feel you that it's hard since that happens so late in the day. I think what I'd do on your place is try to investigate what triggers these bursts of excitement/motivation at that particular time and try to find the patterns to help replicate the feeling when necessary. Cheers! :)
