Every one want to work less and earn more but working less while becoming more efficient isn’t easy task. If one want to work less then he/she will have to follow some rules, working less requires creative thinking and a willingness to open yourself to the possibility that your methods aren’t as efficient as they could be.

The good news is that you can get more done in less time by working smarter, not harder.

These are some techniques that can help you increase your efficiency while actually working less.

The 80/20 Rule


The 80/20 rule, also known as Pareto’s Rule, states that only 20 percent of your work accounts for 80 percent of your output. Be ruthless in cutting down the amount of time you spend on the less important 80 percent and waste your energy.

Parkinson’s Law


Parkinson’s Law states that “work expands to fill the time available for its completion,” and that a sufficiently large bureaucracy will generate enough internal work to keep itself ‘busy’ and so justify its continued existence without commensurate output.

Energy Management

Think of results as a function of energy, not time invested. Working intensely for a short period of time can give better results in fact more than working for days, tired and distracted.

Only Use Sharp Tools


Remember one thing, Skill saves time. Don’t waste your time doing things that you can’t, or won’t, do well. Always take help of others and Delegate them to someone else. That would be save you from wasting time. Do what you know properly or master in it.

Rule With Numbers

Never falls for Assumptions. They are the biggest waste of your time. When your intuitions don’t match the way the world works, you can never be efficient. Combat false assumptions by testing them, and paying attention to the numbers.

The Marginal Rule of Quality


Whenever the extra input you invest in perfecting something exceeds the output gained, stop working on that task.

Now, if you’re really serious about working less and becoming efficient more, then one has to follow the above techniques seriously in life.
