Friday is as good a time as any to think about how to make the most of your work hours, and evaluate your schedule – what worked this week? What didn’t? Did you have too many meetings, not enough time to deliver on action items?
Here are three articles on productivity I came across this week that could help you manage your time better, and even whittle down that work week to 30 hours.
A few years ago, Chirag Mehta set a personal goal to cut down the meetings he attended by 20 percent. In an article on CloudAve, he shares ideas on how to do this, and what it can mean for your productivity.
In an article on Fastcoexist, Sydney Brownstone discusses the book published by the New Economics Foundation, called Time on Our Side, that outlines why a 30-hour workweek “would be a more rational, efficient, and sustainable approach to the modern, developed economy.”
This article by Kevin Daum on Inc.com is actually from last year, but with daylight savings time this weekend, it’s still relevant. He shares 24 ideas for what to do with that extra hour, ranging from the personal to professional. Have you Googled yourself lately, for instance?
