An interesting thought

in General

It does not matter how many hours one puts up at work. It matters how much one puts in those hours.

The effort that you exert during the hours of your work is the most important thing of all. Because you may finish an 8-hour shift with easy-breezy performance, but you’ll also have to ask yourself if you’re satisfied with what you did.

Hi Kelly,

Well said. That is why focus needs to be on productivity rather than the number of hours spent. Thanks :)

At the end of the day, it’s still you who’ll realize and give yourself a pat on the back if you really have done good quality productiveness in your work

I definitely agree with this. I remember my workmates clocking out exactly at 5, finished or unfinished. If it’s their time, they’re out the door. More often than enough people just pass the time in the office doing whatever, productivity of the company is compromised and at the end of the day things are left undone.

100% agreed . Thank you Joy.

You know that old 80/20 rule Ashvini!

You get 80% of the results from just 20% of the actual doing. It’s how you spend those hours that really count.

Hello Ashvini,
If you are referring to the productivity in a certain amount of time i believe that the critical and the most stimulant is money. You know it, money makes the world to spin around!

Hi Ashvini,

Now if only more companies could figure this out and stop using a punchcard approach to their workforce.

It’s hard for people who’ve only worked in traditional offices to understand how much more productive (and in far less time) some people can be if you let them work their best hours, without interruption. Not to mention cutting back on all the unnecessary meetings…

Hi Daria,

We think alike on this totally. I do not like to be bound by 9-5 time because I do not think my mind will run like a factory. Meetings are big productivity killers. 100% agreed. Thanks for your comment :)
