Have you ever attended a time management course, walked away and thought ‘yes, as of tomorrow I am going to work more efficiently, stick to my core hours BUT get more done?’
Then the very next day you arrive promptly, grab your coffee and spend the next 10 minutes catching up with your colleagues and telling them all about the great course you went on yesterday….
So why is it when there is a holiday weekend (just like tomorrow) we are miraculously able to get all our work done in a shorter week?
Is this our culture, do we all perform better under tight timescales? Can we learn from other cultures?
