“I work long hours.”
“I’m so busy, you know how it is.”
It can mean 2 things.
They’re a hard worker. Their proud of their work and they need to put in extra time to achieve the quality they set for themselves.
They’re inefficient and easily distracted by various inboxes and impulse tasks. In an attempt to hide it, they work longer, hoping that by doing more people won’t notice they’re achieving less.
Too often I’m the latter. Which one are you?

It could be when the small things take priority over the work we know is really important. Some people recommend checking their email only 3 times a day and doing their most creative work in the mornings. For me it means blocking out time to focus on one thing, or else I get distracted.
