People who work hard and people who work smart have different measures of success. — Jacob Morgan
There are two potential responses to rising workloads. We can either push back to hold boundaries or work the extra hours. The ideal is to achieve everything within normal work hours, making overtime an exception not a rule.
PUT IT INTO ACTION:
— Communicate all intentions of when you plan to leave the office.
— Plan the work-day well by mapping out all priorities.
— Be ready to delegate work and push back on tasks that are not as important.
— Recognize and stop all time wasters.
— Encourage others to work smart also for the win-win.
— Leave work where it belongs, at work. Stop the treadmill that runs in your brain about work when not at work.
That is six power packed things that I know I can get better at in the coming year!!
