Like many of my clients, I am always looking for ways to speed things up – to produce more results with the same or even fewer resources. We probably agree on this. The key is certainly not about working harder; it may not even be about working smarter. But there are definitely ideas which work, and those ideas need to be uncovered. Often you can find them through analytical thinking. In my last article I discussed this: a process of asking deliberate questions, and in a disciplined, even rigorous way, coming up with answers. Asking and answering, that’s the analytical thinking process. Do it enough and you will likely come up with something useful.

Boredom – The thrill seeking procrastinator finds menial tasks boring. Running errands is more fun than fixing a squeaking ceiling fan.

Make sure that every box is labeled and accounted for. Give detailed instructions to your movers. Have a game plan; print out a map or directions for the movers in case they lose you on the way. Post signs at each room corresponding to the labels that you have put on your boxes to guide the movers to where your boxes will go. Direct the flow of traffic and be available for questions.
It is best if you can do 30-60 minutes of moderate to high level intensity cardio workouts most days of the week. It is also helpful to add resistance training to your workouts 3 times per week. By lifting weights, you will be adding lean muscle, which will in turn speed up your resting metabolic rate.
