I am going to make up an example and put "by myself" in two different positions.

(1) I want to spend more time by myself thinking about my career options.

(2) I want to spend more time thinking about my career options by myself.

As a non-native English speaker, I cannot figure out the correct position of "by myself" when talking to others. Please help me. Thank you very much.
