When does work get done the quickest? Right before a vacation. It is amazing how much can be accomplished in a short time frame when there is a real deadline.
The same concept applies to almost every task in your business or day. There is a reason you most often get these articles from me between 4:30 and 5pm central time.. it is so I don’t spend an hour on them (it is also because this is the time I normally block).
Many employees “shut-down” 30 minutes early. They shut off their brain and just sit. You can’t afford to do this and get ahead. The saying is that “work expands to fit time allotted” and it is 100% true. One of my other favorite sayings is “if you want something done, give it to someone who is busy.” You would think the opposite is true but it is not. Productive people don’t sit around and think about what to do, they do it.
What could you be doing right now to make better use of your time?… DO IT!
