Don’t stay late. Go home early.
Do less. Seriously, take most of the things off of your to do list. Here are some words to live by, when hiring and managing people:
“I’m more impressed by the person who can get it done in 6 hours – and go home and rest – than the person who gets the same thing done in 16 hours.”
Great managers recognize the human-ness of work, and the reality of productivity.
Just make sure you do the one most important thing each day.
Tonight, put down the trivialities. Go home. Eat dinner. Sit in the sunshine. Breathe the outdoor air. Finish your task. Rest.
The world is not made for over-working. In fact, leave early. You probably don’t do it often enough.
Great things can happen by people who live deliberately.
