Be on time for meetings
Don’t trying to squeeze in “just one more thing” before going to a meeting. Instead, get there early. Take something you can work on while you wait for others to arrive.
Don’t hit the “snooze” button
More than a third of all adults hit the “snooze” button an average of three times before getting up each morning. That adds up to 27 minutes each day. Imagine what you could do with an extra 14 hours per month.
Limit the routine
Set a time limit on routine tasks. Don’t waste time “tweaking” a routine job to perfection. Free up that time for more important tasks.
Streamline your voicemail
Include instructions in your greeting on how to bypass your message and go straight to leaving one for you.
Purge your files
Commit to spending five minutes per day, purging three file folders. By the end of the month, you will have cleaned out approximately 60 file folders.
