If you’re like me, you probably don’t know how much time you spent working last year. However, you can decide what you want that amount of time to be this year. Here is how I think you can do this.
First, begin to measure how much time you spend doing things. I recommend using the Time & Energy Audit from our BlueprintOS to not only track this, but to track the value of the time you spend. Then, set a limit on how much time you want to spend working. If you’re familiar with Parkinson’s Law, then you know the theory is that work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion.
No matter what, the amount of time you decide to spend on something is at least how long it will take. So set your hours wisely.
