I’m Sharing My Secret: How To Be More Productive By Working Less
It’s the start of the week- Monday!
Today, I’m gonna speak a little about productivity, and I will be sharing my secret on how I am more productive by working less.
The meaning of productivity in my mind revolves around the efficiency of efforts to achieve a(n) (desired) outcome.
Everyone wants to learn how to be more productive at work, and increasingly more, in their everyday lives. Over the years, with deep analysis, I have been able to pinpoint how and why I became more and more productive over time. I’m going to share these tips with you today.
I never really thought that by working less, I would become more productive and my efforts would pay off, monetarily and non-monetarily.
Here’s what I realized.
No matter how many hours you work, even if it’s 1,000 hours- there is a possibility that it may not be as effective as working more intensely / with more focus for 500 hours.
You will be surprised at how much progress you will make if you decided to give 100% of your energy into your work for 500 hours vs 30%-60% of your energy for 1,000 hours. You will perhaps be a bit disappointed knowing that you could’ve gotten so much more done if you always decided to give 100% of your energy whenever you decided to work.
Knowing this, you can design a new schedule for yourself, with less working hours and more hours available / dedicated to doing things that you love- like spending time with your family, learning a new song on guitar or trying out a new recipe!
Here’s the secret:
Choose the hours where you feel most motivated / inspired to work on certain projects.
For example, personally, here’s what my schedule looks like:
I like to work on creative projects in the earlier parts of my day, and sometimes in the late afternoon.
For business projects, I thrive in the afternoon and evening.
For school, late afternoons and evenings work best.
With this, I’ve been able to plan my school and work (business and creative) around my personal time, at the peak times, where I get the most done. If I focus on school in the morning, perhaps, I will not be as motivated to do some school work as I would in the late afternoons or evenings.
What do you think?
Does this work for you? Have you identified your peak performance times?
