Do you ever notice yourself acting differently at work a day before vacation?
Executive coach Pam Solberg-Tapper believes this is known as becoming "super efficient." She says the day before a vacation is often your most productive day of the year. Solberg-Tapper stopped by to teach ways to operate at this high level of productivity year-round.
"Our time is finite."
As a coach, time management often comes up as a subject that people want to work on with Solberg-Tapper. She explains that people who carry out these increased productivity habits before a vacation, do it intuitively.
These habits can be applied throughout the year following these steps:
Create a sense of urgency to only focus on the things that absolutely need to get accomplished.
Tasks, projects or meetings that are non-essential are slated for a later date or cancelled entirely.
Hijack your excuses and get into action.
According to Newton's law of physics, a body at rest tends to stay at rest, and a body in motion tends to stay in motion.
"Just do it."
Work your Plan
Have a "do list" to follow - either on paper or in your mind. It is your "blueprint" for completion of the high priority responsibilities.
Ask for Help
Find ways to get assistance on tasks to maximize your time and effectiveness.
