Everyone knows the expression Hump Day: “The middle of a work week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.” But have you ever faced the challenge of getting over a “hump” in your business? “I wish I had more time” or “There’s never enough hours in a day” are statements voiced every day.
In fact last month Linkedin asked the question: “People complain that they have no time to do anything. What has ‘shrunk’ your available time in the last few years?” The participants were given four choices and the option of adding their own comments. The choices were:
A. No shrinkage, merely an excuse,
B. Increased demands from work,
C. Increased demands from personal life,
D. The need to gather more information (computer/Net).
The results weren’t a total surprise:
• Increased demands from work – 36%
• No shrinkage, merely an excuse – 28%
• Increased demands from personal life – 16%
• The need to gather more information (computer/Net) – 11%
• Other – 10%
Although this demonstrates that “demands from work” is the top reason we often feel time constraints; it’s interesting that many felt this was just an excuse. It’s certainly true that we all have too many deadlines (business and personal), too little time, high demands and over-arching expectations (often self inflicted). And the holidays are coming! Wouldn’t it be great to learn some best practices to address this issue and improve your business performance?
