    I normally don't work longer than ~3 hours because I feel out of energy very quickly.

    I don't drink coffee as I feel like shit after drinking just one cup and generally avoid energy drinks.

    Nevertheless today I tried red bull, it tastes like shit, but my efficiency and focus has increased by like 1000%.

    How do you get energy for work?

    Love that song! I usually just get up and walk around for a bit, make myself something to eat or just play games. Like try working 1h and then play around 30 min, then work another hour and play 30 min. It's the best to make some short breaks and so on.

    Dota 2 usually does the trick for me, nothing is so relaxing as 4 angry russians screaming at you because they suck at the game.

    With a wife, kids, mortgage, holidays etc, you soon learn to energize yourself even if you feel like sh*t.

    I get up ,have to work me self up thinking the best solution, to earn some cash today .

    I get the witeboard out, and start to think and write methods on the witeboard , when somethink clicks , i do a full story board then,
    Have a coffe ,and then hit the pc .

    I try not to put tv on ,or that it ,i am done till next day , i get very lazy

    I usally put the radio on .

    Then i start the project on the computer , i try to at least get the trmplates for the pages done before retiring ...

    I do sometimes get the whole project finished in one night ,depends how intrested i get into the project ...

    I will admit, i get very distracted ,from one thing to another easly.

    I am doing 4 course at the same time at home , love studying, but does get very tiring ....

    Ah c'mon man. The most expensive and overrated drug ever.

    Coffee and a cigaret does the trick :)

    Recently tried this stuff called "MIO" mix it in your water. Pretty good stuff. You can find at local 7/11 or gas station.

    If I work with something I love to do (Blackhatworld work) then I can work for 8-15 hours straight with just a few short breaks.
    Working with stuff I don't really love to do(My full-time job) then I hate to get up in the morning, I'm super tired after 3-4 hours and completely exhausted when I get back home.

    I don't hate my job at all, I just don't have the real passion for doing what I do.

    I don't need coffee while doing what I love, but I can't live without coffee while I'm at work.

    I move very fast. E = M * C^2.

    The faster you move, the more energy you create.
