I have been thinking about getting back to this later, but because of my schedule and work load and by choice I have been cutting down on dealing with emails, phone calls, meetings, and letting these and other interruptions interfere with my daily routine.
And guess what? I am actually getting more done. While I have known this and in fact have even written about it extensively. But it is amazing how just a few minor tweaks in the way you do things can have a profound effect on your life, your income, and your happiness and fulfillment factor.
Or what my Partner Craig and I like to call the MadFun factor.
Guess what, checking your emails 40 times a day usually accomplishes nothing productive whatsoever. You need to ask yourself am I keeping busy to keep busy or am I truly being productive?
Typically 20% of what we do results in 80% or more of our profit. This is called the Pareto Principle for those of you that have never heard of it or the 80-20 rule. Pretty cool guy actually Mr. Pareto.
A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time.
So, you might want to thing about unplugging. It can put more money in your Wallet, and give you piece of mind that you might not have felt in some time.
