Isn’t it ironic …
The week I have no enforced assignments, I get so much more done.
Yesterday I was reading my friend Suzy’s blog … I was lured in by her email announcing that it was Friday afternoon and that she was knackered and had decided to make some changes. As it happened I couldn’t remember the last time I’d felt so tired myself, so I took a little break from work and read about her plans for an 8 day week.
What it made me think is that often Go Slow and Do Less help me Accomplish a lot More.
Is it a coincidence that on the very week I pull an Ace and use it to take a week off from money assignments, I nail the spend tracker (I am in LOVE with my new system), find the time to cross a long list of money chores off my to-do list and FINALLY get around to creating that killer spreadsheet which captures all of my assets, liabilities, income and outgoings in one easy to find location … like a sparkly dashboard?
No, it is not a coincidence!!
In cutting myself some slack and lightening my workload, I found the inspiration and energy and time to voluntarily attend to a whole bunch of things I’ve been avoiding.
