Every day, you feel you work hard and yet this is not enough. More deadlines, more pending, more reports and above all… more stress! You know it, your mind knows it and certainly your body knows it. You constantly think how many projects you have, what you must do first, you are being interrupted by meetings, emails, calls. And yes, you are making progress, but this is completely exhausting you. Although you don’t mind putting in a lot of effort, you’re unsure whether you can find new ways to work even harder. Have you ever questioned whether a better or more efficient method exists? It might be time to rethink the way you work. It’s time to Work Smarter rather than Harder!

When considering how to work more quickly, focus on effectiveness before efficiency. What are you trying to accomplish, and is there a better way to do it? Depending on your position, you might not have control over how to achieve a goal. Even if you can’t control everything, you should at least consider whether there might be a better way to accomplish your pending and tasks.  Is there anything you should stop doing or you can do in a different way?

Time is money as they say and should not be wasted on unnecessary actions.  Working more effectively maximizes your time and values your energy as well as increases your productivity.

So, to conclude: What does “Work Smarter, Not Harder” mean? Finding ways to use your time and energy at work more effectively that can help you or your teams to complete tasks efficiently and in better terms. This is what it means. We can’t change the number of hours of a day. But we can certainly change our mindset and the way we work to improve our working experience.

And we know how.
