Work Smarter Not Harder

NEWS ...

“Workers in the US put in more hours at work and take fewer vacation days than those in most industrialized countries”

... But the U.S isn't the most productive country in the world. When it comes to full productivity, according to The Economist, France wins, working only forty hours a week with lots of vacation. Conversations with clients and friends suggest people work hard, but, well, stupidly. We're busy, but our important priorities are falling by the wayside as we work hard when we should be working smart. Working smart means getting the same results in less time. To do that, you must change how you work. You'll get the most by changing your speed, increasing focus, and organising to do things in parallel.
