"I am a huge believer of resting when needed. But I am also a believer of working when the world is asleep. That means wake up at 12 noon, work online, prep food, work at 7:30 pm - 2 am, gym at 3 am, my last meal at 4:30 am, and working on my computer again until 5-6 am. I find it optimal to put out as much as you can for yourself and to the world when it sleeps. You will have less distraction from people in person and media, and be able to focus a lot more. Don't aim for an A. Aim for an A+.
