You have probably heard the “work smarter not harder” thing a few times haven’t you? Unless of course you have never read about productivity. It’s true. As I got older and the blogging, social media and search industries more complex it became more difficult to work longer hours. So I reversed the trend.
I work less now while being more productive. How exactly?
The sad tale first
At first I have to tell you that I almost suffered a breakdown a few years back. I was mentally and physically on the verge of collapse for months. I worked (or at least I thought so) for 12 or more hours a day.
