Adam Standard Time

“He’s still awake? What time zone is he on?”
He’s on Adam Standard Time.’

Of course, this isn’t an actual timezone.

Except it is, for me. I choose my waking hours based on what my body tells me because peak performance comes from knowing myself, not from merely copying others.

This rule applies to all of us:

  • Our language: The best email reply might come from our intuition as well as the manual (assuming the manual doesn’t factor in intuition, it should.)
  • Our roles: The best way to achieve our goals might come from our unique perspective as well as what the Position Agreement document says (assuming the agreement doesn’t flex, it should.)

How can we better appreciate our unique perspectives and incorporate them into our work?
