The secrets of successful engineers do at night.

What engineers do in the morning are essentially regular habits to start the day just. You wake up at the sound of the alarm, do your morning rituals, go to shower, eat your breakfast, and take off for work. There’s little to nothing you can do in between, because there is a stiff time allotment.  You just have to do it just as everyone does. While mornings before work are not flexible with more activities, evenings have that kind of luxury which are not being given attention. Well it should be, since it’s that time that bridges one day into the next.

I understand that every hardworking engineer would rather rest the night away the moment he or she reaches the comforts of the home, by grabbing the television remote or checking on your social networks. That’s good, because it gives you a detachment from all the busy things done at work. It’s also a form of meditation. But other than that, here are seven things you can do at night that successful engineers are already doing:

Read to learn

If you’re not mentally exhausted after you logged out of work, it’s best that you exercise your mind with books or online journals. Read! It could be anything under the sun as long as they train your mind to learn something new each day, expanding the horizons of your mind.

Spend time with your loved ones

Being so immersed with engineering work, especially during overtime, drifts you away from the people who matter to you like family and friends. When you can, have some time taking them to dinner or drink over a few bottles of beer. Even a walk to the park will do, just spend time with them together. You can do infinite stuff to distract you from all of the engineer’s stress, while strengthening your relationships with them. It’s a win-win.

Take stock

Nights are where you end the day, so it’s just fitting that you recall everything you have done within that day. You can either write your night thoughts in a journal so you have a record or just think about it.   What have you done that has worked today? What has not worked? Did you forget anything on your checklist that needs to be ticked on the next day? This also prepares you for the next morning.

Work out

This kind of activity suits those who have sat the entire day in front of the desk, i.e. the office engineers. But if you’re a site engineer who went around the site the whole day, don’t stress yourself out by doing more physical activity. Perhaps the sedentary work could need some yoga class or simple stretches at night to help your body.

Reset to refresh

Perhaps the above suggestions didn’t work in removing the work out of your mind. Well, you can just take a batch or have a cup of tea to turn it all around. You’ll be surprised to know that such will help you get a better sleep later.

To save time in the morning worrying about where to find your stuff in such a messy room (and life), you’d rather fix them all before you sleep. That way, you will have a nice, calm start the next day.

Be thankful

This is the ultimate secret of successful who are eternally content and happy about their lives: they never forget to express gratitude even if the other end doesn’t receive it. But to them, it gives that feeling of optimism each night so you could sleep soundly and wake up with a smiling face on. It pays to be positive all the time, especially at night. Start with being thankful that things are falling into their right places. You’ll find that more good things will happen to you.
