Unproductive Busyness, Bad For You! - JPAR

Unproductive busyness, bad for you… bad for your business.

Parkinson’s law:

Work increases to fill the time available.

Pareto (80/20):

Extra time fills with unimportant activities.

The solution?

Ask yourself – How would you get your work done tomorrow if:

You only had 2 hours per day to complete it?

You only had 2 hours per week to complete it?

Then, write down only 2 mission critical items and test by asking:

Would I be satisfied with my day if only that happened?

What are the consequences if they don’t?

Complete those tasks by 11 AM the next day.

Don’t multitask.
