Over the past five years, as companies have downsized, employees have been pushed beyond the limits of a typical 9 to 5 workday. In order to get everything done workers are getting into the office earlier and staying longer than ever. But are these long hours really necessary? If you want to achieve balance in your life and get more accomplished in less time, try working smarter instead of longer.
The whole concept of working smarter may seem like an old cliché, but if you can achieve this it will change your life. It takes some effort, but isn't it worth it if your entire working life gets easier? Take the time and the tedium out of almost any task by learning to work smarter.
