It's that time of the year when many people are taking summer vacations.  Have you noticed that the day before you leave for a vacation is your most productive day of the year?

Life coach, Pam Solberg-Tapper, shared why that is and how you can use the same skills to be efficient all year round.

Apply Hyper-Focus

  • Only do things that are necessary at the moment.
  • Avoid busy work, distractions, or unnecessary searching on the internet.
  • Save non-essential tasks or meeting for a different time. 

Bust Procrastination

"When we're leaving for a vacation, we can't procrastinate anymore, so we know how to bust it," Solberg-Tapper said. 

  • You feel a sense of urgency.
  • Eliminate excuses. 

Work your Plan

  • Follow a "do list," either on paper or in your mind.
  • Don't keep adding more.  Keep the list finite, to work the plan.
  • Helpful to complete high priority responsibilities. 

Ask for Help or Delegate

"We don't want to impose on people, or we think someone won't be able to do it as good as we do, and so that's why we don't ask for help or delegate," Solberg-Tapper said. 

  • Find assistance for tasks you might not have time for like pet care or getting the grass mowed. 
  • Lean on or delegate for help with small tasks.
