Yes, That’s what I thought I had read.

Gretchen Rubin writes

“As I had found in January, when I started applying the “one minute Rule” and the “evening tidy-up” small efforts, made consistently, brought significant results. I felt more in control of my workload.”

This made a serious “slap in the face” moment for me. Having my own business and running it efficiently is something that is of the upmost importance to me. I too wanted to know where I could make changes to my workload. To streamline my efforts and have the results right there in my face.

Too often I find myself in the office well after hours and on weekends. My co-worker Rebecca believes it’s because like her, my brain doesn’t shut down. We get soooo excited about our clients and how we can help them that until we get our thoughts down and share with the “team” we don’t rest.

Just In Time Solutions has grown at amazing rate in the last 10 years. But, I think I can do even better.

Rubin states that she noted she was more productive during a 90 minute stent then a three hour long haul.

She accomplished more in a shorter time because she could focus on one maybe two issues – complete them and then was ready to take that 15 minute or 30 minute break before heading back in for round two!

Do you loose concentration after 90 minutes? Have you ever tracked your efforts and noted when you got the best results?

Mornings are always better for me. Without a doubt, I’m fresh and ready to go at 6 am and can definitely handle anything the world throws at me. But as the day wears on is my productivity decreasing?

Maybe I should be “happy” with the results I’m getting between 6-11am and call it a day!

Humph, now there’s a new concept! Dare you! Try it for a week or even three days. Track how your results change from working on a 90  minute schedule to “free-for-all”

Let’s hear what you have to say.
