We all want to work smarter, not harder—all while getting the results we desire. For many tasks, however, it’s not just how you perform them, but when—and timing can make all the difference in terms of success. To help you make the most of the following common business-related scenarios, here’s some expert advice:
Research from WhenIsGood.net indicates that only 1 in 3 employees is likely to attend a Monday morning meeting. With this in mind, it’s time to shift to a different day and time combination. Tuesday afternoon is actually one of the best times to hold a meeting because it is far enough away from the “end of the week rush” and people have had a chance to catch up on any tasks leftover from the week before.
Making a Big Decision
Researchers from Columbia Business School have found that judges hearing cases make the most consistent decisions first thing in the morning and again right after lunch, indicating that when you have to weigh your options on a serious matter, you should do so after you have eaten. If you’ve got a tough choice to make, it could be in your best interest to postpone your decision until after you’ve fueled your body and your brain with food.
Interviewing for a Plum Position
Like many things that require focus and energy, scheduling a job interview in the morning will help to improve your performance and, potentially, your rating from the interviewer. Research teams from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and Harvard Business School studied MBA applicants and found that even when job candidates were equally qualified, those interviewed last received lower scores—whether they deserved them or not.
From a single meeting to making a big decision or career move, it’s important to consider your timing. As the research cited above shows, making the right move at the right time can improve your chances of success.
