Do Less. Get more done.


The best time managers won’t read this article. They already manage their time for effectiveness instead of efficiency. Efficient time managers try to do more in any given period of time. Effective time managers focus on fewer activities, spending more time on each, with more time to relax, think, prepare and follow through so they can get more done with greater impact.

On the one hand, you already know this. Whenever there’s something you have to get done, you clear your day, assemble the people, information and resources you need to complete the task and give it 100% of your attention until it is complete. That’s the epitome of fitting fewer things into your day – as in one thing.

The models abound.

As CEO of Disney in the 1990s, Michael Eisner refused to schedule anything more than six weeks in advance and always kept two hours free each day.

As described in “The 40-30-20-10 Rule of Time Management” people focused on getting three things done each week will complete more of them than will the same people working 10 projects at a time.

At the most senior levels, you can’t do anything on your own. This is where Two-way Time Management comes into play, making sure others accept accountability for things you delegate to them.

Consider these guiding principles adapted from Finland’s schools. Children there spend less time in school (as in 3-5 hours/day), have fewer classes with more breaks to give them time to digest what they’ve learned, cover fewer topics in more depth and have less homework than most other countries. Yet, they are consistently on the top of the global performance tables. They are learning more by doing less work. As school principle Leena Liusvaara said in Michael Moore’s documentary, “Your brain has to relax every now and then. If you constantly work, work, work, then you stop learning.”
