Hi Paul,

Yea, I'd much rather brag about efficiency, about how quickly I was able to get things done, not how long it took. The idea is to work smarter not harder. Great post and as always thanks for sharing it with the BizSugar community!

Great post Paul, and hands up that I'm often one of those doing 12 hours days. Although I know it's not good I do have reasons for it. I have several clients and in different countries so sometimes I have to fit in with them. I am happy at home working but if I have plans to go out then I do. I am taking your point 5 on board for 2013 and going to see what I can change as I know it isn't the best. Thanks for sharing on
