Productivity is about how much we accomplish, not how busy we are. Despite how busy you may feel, you’re probably not as busy as you think.
Tips & Tricks:
A recent study found that on average, people overestimated the time they worked each week by more than 18 hours.
How to unhook yourself from the busyness trap:
- Keep a time log where you track how you spend your time over a given week, in 15 or 30 minute increments.
- Use the Rule of 3 to stay focused.
Don’t deceive yourself into being busy. Track your time to make you spend it efficiently on important and meaningful work.
