We are consistently under the gun to produce more. And often with no additional resources added to the mix. Consider the “plus one” concept.
On any given workday, let’s assume we’re disciplined and we complete our daily “to do” list. Leaving us tired but satisfied. Time to call it a day, right? Wrong. Do ONE more meaningful task. Draft an important memo, stop at one more account, leave a voice message for a business colleague that you’ve fallen out of touch with. This adds up to way over 200 additional pieces of activity annually. The equivalent of adding multiple work weeks to your year.
Try “plus one” and see if it works for you!
