Tips To Save Time

Dear Friends,

Need more leisure time?

These days that’s a pretty common problem and goal. We’re working more hours and spread pretty thin, but don’t despair. Here are a few time management tips that work well in both your business and personal life:

Use a daily planner.
Electronic or paper, it doesn’t matter. Choose one that gives you at least one page per day, and then make sure you always keep it with you. Jot down your commitments as you go.

Get rid of your to-do list.
Why? To-do lists often end up being frustrating and futile, something you never quite get to. Transfer the items on your to-do list to a particular time and day in your daily planner. You’ll be amazed at how much your stress level goes down and how much you accomplish when you do this.

Set aside a block of time to return phone calls and answer emails.
Choosing early morning to do this is often best since the other person will have the rest of the day to respond. Of course, return urgent messages and phone calls in a timely manner.

When talking on the phone or in face-to-face conversations,
Give the other person your full attention. Don’t scroll through your email inbox or fill out your daily planner when you’re talking to someone. Make sure that your communication is clear and focused, which will reduce the need for clarification and other time-wasters in the future. Don’t multitask when you deal with people; it never pays off.

Thanks for spending 3 minutes with me...
The best is yet to be!
