Get More Done In Less Time by Reducing Your Work Time?

Get More Done In Less Time by Reducing Your Work Time?

    Glen Stansberry at LifeDev has shared his experience on his “evening computer fast” which he kept his computer shut down for 5 days from the evening until morning.

    He is a developer, and this is pretty difficult as his work relies on the computer. I can totally understand difficulty as I am an IT person as well who live by the Internet and computers.

    I do agree with his point:

    But the danger of having your “workplace” at home is a grave one. It’s way too easy to mix business with pleasure, especially when you use the same tools for both.

    At night, I definitely mixed both professional work and entertainment together.

    That’s the reason he tried to use less of the computer to boost his productivity when he faces with a computer. The results are quite good:

    The same is true with my study. When I knew that the computer was going to be turned off at the same time every day, my productivity soared to new heights. Now that I only had a static, limited amount of time, I had to squeeze the most out of it. I had to plan, and only work on the most important things that had to be done that day.

    By working less I also found that I was more refreshed and willing to work the next day. The anticipation of the things I got to work on was much higher. AND, I was able to plan more the night before about what I was going to do the following day. With the combination of meticulous planning and anticipation of what I “got” to do the next day, work was tons more enjoyable.

    Have you ever tried to work less and you actually accomplished more? Share your experience with us!
