I plan ahead of time so as not to stay up the night before and then get stuck and cannot seek outside opinions at 4 in the morning.

Yeah, me too, but as we all know,

That's how I found out that I do my best work under pressure, in the middle of the night, hopped up on coffee and a 7:30 deadline fast approaching :D
