Differentiating Output vs. Time Worked


Your output is directly related to how long you work, correct?

When was the last time you worked with zero distraction?  How much of our day is spent surfing the web, social media, and other attention seeking stimuli?

Yet we continue to place such an emphasis on how many hours we put in at the office.

Last week, I spent a little more time out of the office.  I spent a little more time working on the go.  And the result?

More output and less time spent working.  The reason?

When you cut away all of the noise and distractions from a workplace we free ourselves up to focus creatively.  And to be creative, it requires time to focus.

What is the purpose of all the busy?

Stop with the busy, and let’s focus on what it actually takes to create the output we seek.
