What is the optimal speed at which we are most happy and productive at our work? That has always been a puzzle to me, as there is so much to do and so little time it seems. I’ve found that striving to get as much done as fast as possible is an intellectual solution that doesn’t actually result in more productivity. Eventually you run out of steam and go the other way, instead of a workhorse, you become tired and lazy. No, that’s not the way.
It finally hit me the other day, like a recollection of something I already knew, or perhaps had thought about. How fast one works depends on what the internal impulse of the moment… sometimes that’s faster or sometimes that’s slower, sometimes the work day is shorter, sometimes it’s longer. When impulse drives the speed, no time is lost because you are always the most productive your body and mind can possibly be at that moment. Work becomes not only very enjoyable, but very efficient.
That’s my blog for today, I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it.
