You don't have to work this way

 
 

Which would you prefer?

  • Spend all day reacting to someone else's priorities or proactively invest in your high value projects?

  • A pervading, nagging sense of impending disaster or an ever-present sensation of calm control?

  • A seemingly continual ping of notifications shouting "look at me!" like an attention-seeking toddler in the chocolate aisle in a supermarket, or long stretches of clear focused space guaranteed to be free of interruptions?

You have more choice about which of these alternative ways of working you default to than you think you do.

And the second set of choices doesn't preclude you from doing great work for you and your clients. In fact it's the gateway to it.
