The current work system forces us to be at work eight hours daily, no matter how much we work. This has resulted in people being only as productive as they need to be. People have gotten into the habit of being busy and not necessary productive. Here is a new way of looking at it: Laziness is not when you do not work, but when you work for work’s sake. Instead of being at work for eight hours and keeping yourself busy, spend five hours there being as productive as possible.
You can save a huge amount of time if you focus on things that are important instead of keeping yourself busy. Time is the most precious asset; don’t waste it!
When you work, make this time as productive as you can.
For example, don’t waste hours handling unimportant emails.
Work fewer hours, while producing more.
It might be hard, because our culture tends to reward personal sacrifice instead of personal productivity.
