Not speaking your language?


Organize Yourself Otherwise Your Work Could Kill You

We are in a society where people are applauded for starting work early and finishing late.

It's about time employers recognised that their people have a life and that working from dawn to dusk does not make them a happy and productive employee.

Have you ever heard of the Pereto principle or the 80/20 rule? It goes like this:

  • 80% of your results are produced by 20% of your efforts

  • 80% of your income comes from 20% of your clients

  • 80% of your files are used 20% of the time

  • ? and so it goes

It's time to organize yourself and get a life not just a living. When was the last time you did some regular exercise? Do you know little things like taking a brisk walk at lunchtime or climbing up and down the stairs will help you function better. You'll be more refreshed and energised.

Get away from work during the day. Organize your lunch break so that you spend time out of the office and in the fresh air. Even if it is only 15 minutes to walk and buy your lunch (something low in fat).

It's always the little things that make the biggest difference?

Ever heard of the "Woodcutter Story"?

Once upon a time there was a woodcutter who was found chopping trees in the forest seven days a week with a blunt saw. One day someone said "Woodcutter, why don't you take time out to sharpen your saw?" The woodcutter replied "I'm too busy, I don't have the time".

Moral to the story: If the woodcutter took time out to sharpen his saw, he could cut more trees in less time.

Isn't it about time you learned how to organize yourself so that your saw remains sharp?
