I’ve had a couple of extra productive days and somehow managed to get heaps of reading in as well.
And it’s made me realise that the concept of work expanding to fit the time available is so true.
This week, I had two days blocked off where I knew I wouldn’t be able to get any work done. And yet, I have the same amount of deliverables as usual.
So I organised my time into 90-minute blocks; each block for a specific project. I also listed out the tasks to complete for each project, within those blocks.
Somehow, everything got done and I even had time to work on things that cropped up last minute. I also managed to get ahead on some tasks.
Does it make me some kind of geek if I say that this level of productivity excites me?
If I apply this concept to the rest of my weeks, does it mean that I’ll have even more free time? (As of now, I have three/four-day weekends, depending on how I feel.)
But if you know me, you’ll know that the prospect of more free time attracts me because it means more time to work.
“Work is my hobby,” I once said to someone. That’s the advantage of loving what you do.
