In school, we were given homework for next week. How many of you have devoted seven days to do it? Or at least seven evenings? And how many of you did your homework the evening before and then got an A or a B or simply got their homework accepted despite a lower mark?

cut down your work-time and power-up your effectiveness

Much of our work is not affected by how much time we devote to it. If you always dedicate your whole day for doing given tasks at work but then revolutions in your private life force you to pay more attention to them than to your work, then the same set of tasks can be done from 4 to 5 by really focusing on them.

Hence my proposition for you is to cut down – if possible – your working time.

my story

I used to spend hours by my computer letting my thoughts revolve around some task or an idea. But too often those thoughts revolved around my thoughts and feelings instead of something productive. And then there was this sad observation about how much time I have wasted.

Last times I give myself single shots of time for work. I sit down to do my work, let’s say three times a day for at least half an hour. And it gives me results.

   benefits of reducing your working time:

you actually want to work

– your work is much more efficient – you produce tangible results because there is no time for pondering

– and effective work gives great satisfaction

you don’t have enough time to get bored with your work

you have a private life!

Benefits of shorter worktime: 1. You want to work. 2. Work is much more efficient. 3. Effective work gives satisfaction. 4. Not enough time to get bored. 5. You have private life.

I really recommend it. Especially to entrepreneurs, because this is the type of work I have experience with.

For me, this change in my work style have brought great results: I stopped being lazy. I don’t lose time and get down to the nitty-gritty of a matter and I push my projects forward.

And it’s not the end of the journey to improve your work organization, effectiveness, and life happiness.

After this first step – reducing my work-time and avoiding periods of being distracted or thinking pointlessly – I felt a big difference. But I want more. I want and need better organization, maybe also better attitude. Especially because I’m a stay at home mom of two Boys, not having eight hours per day to work!

Currently, I’m taking Ari Meisel’s course, The Art of Less Doing. I’m not even in the half of the course, yet after starting to implement his methods I already see significant changes in the direction that I needed and wanted. And I just started.

After I’ll take the whole course and give myself some time to implement the knowledge and to test it, I’ll write my review on the blog. If you don’t want to miss it – sign up for email notifications below.
