It seems it is only when I find myself with a truly absurd workload – such as now – that I really begin to work efficiently.
Sometimes I astonish myself with the number of decisions I can make and the volume of artwork briefs, contracts, feedback mark-ups, and above all, emails, that I can process in a day.
Of course, you may be thinking “surely if you were even half as efficient the rest of the time you wouldn’t have these periods of being so swamped cos you’d have done it all already?”
And you’d be quite right. But nobody likes a clever dick, so I’ll thank you to keep such treasonous talk to yourself… Just in case the boss hears you.
