TIP OF THE WEEK #9

DON'T RELY ON YOUR MEMORY - Write down everything (don't waste time trying to remember).

TIP OF THE WEEK #8

SET TIME LIMITS - If you have to work late or during the weekend, set time limits for yourself. Whether you work for two or four hours, stop working at the end of that time and enjoy the rest of the evening or weekend.

Setting time limits can also encourage you to start a task you have been putting off. I don't particularly like to weed. So I set a timer for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off I usually keep on weeding. It's the getting started and thinking it will take too much time that often prevents us from starting an undesirable task.

TIP OF THE WEEK #7

DELEGATE - Realize you can't do everything and should not do everything. Delegate at work and at home. To use an effective delegation system, train, entrust, follow up and evaluate.

TIP OF THE WEEK #6

MAKE APPOINTMENTS FOR YOU - Make at least one screened appointment with yourself each day. Screened time is quiet, uninterrupted time allowing you to concentrate on a project or catch up on your reading.

TIP OF THE WEEK #5

CONSOLIDATE SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Be mindful of your time. Instead of starting and stopping at different levels of activity, you'll save time by making all of your outgoing telephone calls together, taking care of all your errands at once, etc.

A bit about me...
