My good friend Andrea Lee has a theory – that you can earn twice as much in half the time, if you’re smart about how you work. She calls it ‘unworking’. For too long I’ve been in ‘nose to the grindstone’ mode … and frankly, I’m just not going to do it anymore. I’m going to test Andrea’s theory for the month of April, and officially give myself a whole lot more time for fun, R&R, and creative chilling out.
And then, when I sit down to work at my computer, I will design my time to work smarter, spend less time and accomplish more. Not sure HOW this will happen but only that it must, cause I’m just not having quite enough fun in my current mode.
On the books are two weeks away visiting New York , Philly and Boston . An acting lesson for my Serenity Hawfire character in New York (fun work), the launch of my new coaching program complete with fun free teleclass (watch for details here and via email), a little family vacation time in NYC , and a week of going around to interactive theater pieces, getting inspired for my Serenity project with official Friends of Serenity. No suffering here, that’s for sure!
Thrown in will also be some time spent playing the piano (if I can find one on the road), going to Bikram Yoga classes, and thinking about how the Serenity script must morph and develop. Oh yeah, just for extra fun, I may tweak some of my sales pages and do some coaching here and there.
And how are you going to max your work time, cut back and have what my old coach Rich Schefren called ‘Miller Time”? I know it’s going to make me more efficient and creative … so how about you?
