Here’s a great-looking infographics by well-renowned entrepreneur Neil Patel at QuickSprout. It goes over the factors that influence creativity as proven by scientists, as well as the two main schools of thought on when is the best time of day for creative work.

The Cubiclite’s Take
You may be most creative in the morning or the evening. Either way, take advantage of your peak creative hours and create wonderful things. The alternative would be to choose NOT to be creative, which can have serious negative consequences like missed deadlines, poor quality work due to cramming/procrastination, or missed opportunities. It’s your choice!
Well, there’s actually another possible scenario, which is you’re not engaged in any creative activities at all. That’s your choice, too! And in that case, you should be wondering why you got to reading this post right up to this sentence.
