Interesting - though what may likely happen is the same as with email - 'best' times to mail become when everyone does it - killing the golden goose.

You make several good points. As someone who has also navigated "both sides", it's my observation that most of these issues depend totally on the organization for which you work, rather than an agency or client model. There are slow, bureaucratic corporations but also very nimble, fast-moving ones - certain people thrive in one or the other - I prefer the latter. I also believe that the corporate longevity and stability, as you describe it, is a thing of the past.

As for agencies - agree with some of the other commenters that the politics can be equally onerous/dysfunctional. Your point that you have to be "on" all the time is true - and was a part that I particularly enjoyed - but I wish that your comment that "your clients shouldn’t tell you what to do; you’re the expert" was more the norm in practice rather than the exception.

Thanks for the post!
