Private Personal Assistant Gets More Work Done Every Single Day
The British are the third busiest people in Europe, accruing an average of 42.7 hours per week in 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics. Regrettably, though, the national productivity rating per hour of 107.2 lags behind its continental counterparts. In fact, Luxembourgers, who work 2.5 hours less, are the most productive in Europe at 189.2. Laura Vanderkam, critically acclaimed author of several books on time management, suggests recording how much time people spend on one task for the entire week—all 168 hours of it. This is perhaps not the easiest method to assess your schedule, but how you construe being “busy” just might need to be revisited. In other words, it’s all a matter of getting your priorities straight and focusing on the things you want to do more. Keeping a “time diary” may not seem to do much good for the first few days, but a month’s worth of journal entries could help you detect a pattern as it develops.
