4 Tricks To Work Less Hours…Get More Done
Right now we’re working longer hours, getting less sleep, less recreation, and still getting LESS DONE
Americans are working longer hours than ever and yet productivity during those hours has not increased. In fact, most studies show that it has decreased. This is a bad direction since work hours are displacing time spent resting, being with family, or being with friends. In short, people are feeling less connected and more stressed out from unproductive work. The answer lies in taking charge of the way our day proceeds. The problem is most likely found in the way that we work; and we can control that.
Never Work “Off List”
When we create work check lists for the day, we have to face certain facts. We suddenly can see that we can’t finish the entire list today and we must make certain decisions about what is most critical. We can use a priority scale that separates the list by importance (A,B,C) and then sequences those categories (A1, A2, A3). Until you face the reality of your list, you are always in danger of spinning your wheels doing something less important than you should be doing at any particular moment of the day.
