An excerpt from Build Blog’s Back to School Guide for Architects
“2. That you have to pull “all-nighters” to get your projects done is a fallacy.
It’s simply not true. You’ll be told differently from students higher up the ranks. When they tell you that “there’s just no way around all-nighters” they will be holding a cigarette in one hand, a triple grande coffee in the other and they will have a look on their face so morbid that it will seem more appealing to simply change majors. Don’t believe them, they’re delusional. Work hard, work efficiently, work with self discipline. You don’t have to pull all-nighters to produce exceptional work in architecture school. The students who have supposedly “been up for 3 nights” always seem to be sleeping on the couch in the library during the day.”
I’ve cut down on all nighters these days and rather than getting less work done, i’m getting better stuff out. I guess efficiency and a clear mind totally outweighs long nights and eye bags.
