It’s no surprise that the busiest people get the most done. Their focus is more intense because they have more work and less time to get it done.
Forced with a deadline, busy people develop an incredible work flow.
If you don’t have a real deadline, make one up. Former editor of Vanity Fair Christopher Hitchens used to write 1000 words in 30 minutes so he had more time to read and talk to people.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE, TAKE ON MORE WORK. If you don’t have work, make it up or ask for it. You shouldn’t be wasting any more time in letting projects sit.
Time is a real productivity killer. The more time you have the more likely you’ll procrastinate. Procrastination incites stress because all you’re thinking about is the job that’s still undone.
You don’t need more time. You need more work and more deadlines. The time is NOW to get stuff done. You can relax after you ship. And then repeat.
Work. Done. No regrets. Happiness.
