Not Enough Hours In The Day?

Not Enough Hours In The Day?

Well, here are some tips and techniques from noted author David Cottrell’s book TIME! 105 Ways to Get More Done Every Workday:

# 2     Set your alarm clock 15 minutes ahead. Yes, it’s kind of like playing a practical joke on yourself, but you’ll be surprised how it can help you get going in the morning if you just wake up and pretend it’s 15 minutes later than it actually is. You’ll get out the door faster and into the office sooner – or, if some minor catastrophe occurs that throws potholes in your way, you’ll have some extra time to wrangle with them.

# 61   Focus on what’s important. Take care of the most important item on the agenda first.  If nothing else is accomplished, make sure you accomplish the most important reason for calling the meeting. This is worth repeating: Do not allow time in meetings for solving hundred-dollar problems when you’re spending thousands on the meeting.

# 96    Want to make a positive difference? Ask your peers and subordinates, “What do I do that wastes your time and hinders your performance?” Be prepared for some frank – and surprising – answers. You may learn that some of your efforts are not really helping others be more productive.
