The often-asked question “how can I do less” can be translated into “how can I do more,” but more important!
Here are three questions to ask yourself as you plan your day:
- Does this have to be done?
- Does it have to be done now?
- Who else could do it?
At the end of the day, debrief it. Did I spend my time on tasks that:
- had to be done?
- had to be done now?
- had to be done by me?
Good intentions are a start, and learning through debriefing will help turn those intentions into habits.
