I’ve always enjoyed running but never made it a competitive sport of mine. Until recently, 38 years of age, I’ve decided to try an improve on my 5K time. I ran last year in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in 2016 and ran the 5.6K under 30 min. And this was not even trying. This year I hope to improve on that time.
I think taking this PB concept to everything you do can be a good approach to understand exactly how lon it takes you to do something and how you can improve on increasing your efficiency. I don’t think it’s often that we time ourselves to the exact second how long it takes is to get to work, or how long it took me to write that email, or review a 20 page document. Perhaps if we start to do this more we would stop saying that we are busy and say I can make time.
Here’s my current PB for getting to work and going to the gym during my lunch break.
Try it out on any task you do!
