The Way Matt Mullenweg (Founder of WordPress) Works

I think every freelancer has a totally unique working style.  For example, I tend to wake up with the sun and work straight on through evening, with a break or two for food, exercise, and music. Rarely do I work later than midnight.

My friend, Charlie, works in hyper-ridiculous spurts where he will spend 20+ hours working on a project, get sick due to lack of sleep, celebrate the project’s completion, then start all over again.

“To each his own!”, my dad says.

WordPress’ founder, Matt Mullenweg runs on a completely different schedule than me.  He travels a lot, parties, and rarely goes to bed before 5 a.m.  Plus, he doesn’t eat breakfast – something I consider a mandatory item on my daily calendar.

What does all this mean?  Nothing…unless you are one of those people who work on other people’s schedules (a.k.a. You work for someone else.).  😉
