Changing your working hours?

Changing your working hours?

Changing your working hours? Consider this.

When trying to create a change, such as to the hours we work, we often try to do it instantly, when it seems overwhelming. Whilst we can usually make some quick changes to create space. For more significant changes, longer term deadlines are usually needed.
For example, to work shorter hours, by the end of the year. And this takes forward planning.

Let us suggest looking to create that new week, by the end of December. Aiming towards that deadline.

Be clear what that shorter week or month is made up of. The parts. The times. The work. And answer yourself these four questions:
1. What needs to happen specifically to create that week? How will you specifically do those things?
2. Who do you need to speak to and what do you need to say?
3. What do you need to change and how specifically will you do that?
4. And how will you specifically protect the decisions you’ve made?

Imagine the change. Plan the change. Implement the change. Protect the change.

Every decision you now make is measured against that new change.

I use a traffic light system to make quick decisions aligned with my goals. Red – goes against it. Amber – neutral or supportive. Green – aligned or drives it.

Let me know what comes to mind and how you get on.
