Montessori Work Cycle

Maren Schmidt’s article about the Montessori 3 hour work cycle for children and adults is so well explained. I find her perspective of Montessori so sound!
I still know adults who have a difficult time getting things done. I wonder sometimes if they were constantly interupted and didn’t develop a natural work cycle.
I used to feel so fustrated in gradeschool when we had to put our work away before its completion. It was always difficult for me to pick up my work again and finish it. My inner motivation was gone.
Montessori believed the reward for work and a job well done is the internal statisfaction that comes from uninterupted work. I think that creativity and learning work together during a 3 hour cycle.
