Planning.  Is it really that simple.  I had an interesting conversation with a patient about his work and how the management didn't really plan allocation of resources properly, as such they were/are constantly running past deadlines with their projects.  Accordingly, clients aren't happy, the workers aren't happy, and the management isn't happy.

Now I know we have all read and heard about glorious ideas of common sense and hindsight being 20/20. Nonetheless, here's a thought.
Given the number of "workers" and what they each can produce over a given time frame. Wouldn't it be more prudent for the company to say to clients "we have an opening to begin your project on date x, and can guarantee completion by date y".  Currently what they say to clients is "we can begin your project now and have it for you by this date" but then end up missing the date.
From a business perspective you want to under promise and over deliver.  From the clients perspective - "they", like "us" just want an honest quote on price and completion time.
From e employees perspective, they don't mind hard work or working extra to make a deadline. Constantly working 60+hr weeks, being stressed and fatigued is not what any one wants  (and yes it hurts productivity too further complicating abilities to meet deadlines).
The idea is simple: a little forethought and realistic appraisal of resources can allow for greater flexibility, efficiency and higher quality of "work".
So, there you go we've solved another one. So..., so what?
I'll tell you what.  With a little forethought and realistic appraisal of resources you can get more done in less time, have less stress, more energy and greater life fulfillment.
Sure you've heard it before, you know that already, right?  Well, there is a difference.  There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom.  Knowledge is 'knowing' and wisdom is 'doing'.  Thus I would argue that most people (myself included) are knowledgeable but not yet wise.
Take your work day, or a week and plan out what you can and cannot realistically do, schedule your time accordingly, unless an emergency stick to the plan.  Build in your leisure time, sleep and meals (prep and eating) - you can even plan finances this way too!  Start small and work yourself up in levels of planning from weeks to months to years.  As you move up in levels of time you're starting to plan/think in higher level goals.  
Before you know it your living each day with a purpose.  Yes life happens but with a plan you can navigate emergencies  that much easier.
Think about "successful" people.  They know where they are going and what they are doing each day: and they do it.  Planning. It really is that simple.
You could even apply this idea to your own health goals ;)
I now know you (and i) are knowledgeable about this.  Show me how wise you are about it
