Four to four and a half days per week. That’s it.
People say, “Say it ain’t so, David. Aren’t you a productivity fiend?”
Oh, I’ve had my share of six- to seven-day workweeks. But the first problem is that it takes its toll on your health, even if you’re meditating, sleeping, and eating well.
The second problem is you’re not innovating enough. If you’re lone wolfing it and everything’s on you, you’re missing and even resisting opportunities to delegate, automate, and eliminate.
I like spending time on Monday speculating on who could I give this to? Or who could I hire to handle this? Or what software would make my life easier?
Innovation needs to be a part of your schedule, or it simply won’t happen.
