Slow weeks may be possible, but they are a choice or a result of one’s choices. One creates the environment necessary for a slow week by living or working in such a way that one is merely responding to events and waiting for these events to happen. Properly planning out one’s work week ahead of time and tackling necessary work head-on, one can start to work in an active mode and one that focuses on productivity and progress.
- If you haven’t reviewed and planned the work you need to do, you might slip into reactive mode and have a slow week.
- You may be avoiding your real work because you have tough decisions to make or are trying to sidestep conflict with others.
- Ultimately, it’s up to you whether you have a slow week or a productive one.
“Because there is never an end of things that you need to do, you can’t have a slow week without it being a personal decision.”
