How to finish your workday by noon

I saw a tweet from the great Mr. Moneybags (Dylan Madden) recently.


Checky:


==


If I gave you 2 hours to get your work done, you would do it.


Pure intention. Clear minded action. No wasted time.


You take 8 hours because you give yourself unlimited time.


==


In my experience?


Checks out.


For example, if you read my email from the other day you know I’m enjoying myself on vacation.


I busted my arse the last few weeks—working twice as long as normal, writing 2-3x more emails (both for myself and my clients)—annnnnd…


I finished a whole month of work in two weeks.


This happens in a typical week too.


When I’m laser-focused, ignoring my girl as she whispers sweet nothings into my ear while I’m banging out copy (yes, I live that “but baaabe, I’m horny!!” meme), and not staring at a blank screen, I can finish my work by noon.


But when I get distracted by my girl, my workload, social media, or anything else, it takes me twice as long to finish work.


And y’know what?


Psychologists actually gave this phenomenon a nickname:


Parkinson’s Law.


Which means, work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion.


This is why everyone gets more done in weeks leading up to a vacation.


When you give yourself less time to complete your work?


You’ll get it done in time.


When you give yourself all day to work on 3 things?


You’ll be burning that midnight oil baby.


To quote a phrase popularized by Mr. Moneybags himself:


“Understand this and prosper.”


Capisce?


If you need help making more money from every single email you send — while building a rabid fanbase who will buy every product you cook up in your noggin…


book a consultation here.


And we’ll jump on a quick, 15-minute call to see if we’re a good fit.


And if we are?


Well, cully, you might just add another 0 to your bank account within the next year.


Call me on my bluff.


I dare you.
