Isn’t it amazing how much you can achieve in the days before going on holiday? With a firm deadline looming and a strong desire to get things under control, I know I can make decisions fast, work like a demon to finish off those thousand things that have been sitting around for weeks, and leave the business in better shape that it’s been in months. It’s times like these that I can get much more done in less time.
It’s also true for those days where I’ve had commitments which have forced me to get everything done before a certain time.
A while back I had a kind of revelation…
“More hours does not equal better outcomes.”
Yes, it’s plainly obvious when you read it like that, but deep down, I really believed that the key to better results, was working harder. Fortunately that’s not entirely true.
