Today was a beautiful day and I must admit that I traded some inside computer time for outside gardening time. So today, I want to talk to you about how to flex our time responsibly so that you can get important things done, while also taking advantage of weather opportunities – or other opportunities.

Main topic of the Show: Flex Time and Productivity

7 Steps for Doing Flex Time Effectively

  1. Start with the big picture in mind – both your work and home
  2. Make a list of minimums – actual must delivers – for the day/week/month
  3. Evaluate the consequences of not getting some of the intended work done when you intended to do it
  4. Seek ways to reduce time needed for the same outcome (eg the workout, crockpot dinner, move a deliverable to a later day, etc)
  5. Get real with yourself and others about it
  6. Communicate if you need to (Leos’ coffee order)
  7. Flex responsibly/abort the idea if you are leading yourself to doom and destruction

Make it a great week!
