Time is precious and we never seem to have enough hours in a day. You can make better use of your time if you are aware of how you waste time.
Always make a plan — then prioritize what you need to accomplish.
Prepare before you start a new project. Be sure to have all the materials and information that you need to complete a job.
Get organized. Nothing wastes time more than looking through your clutter trying to find what you need.
Don’t take on more projects than you have time to handle.
Learn to delegate — you can’t do it all. If there are tasks that are not your strength or that you don’t enjoy, get someone who is better at it to do it for you.
Stick with one project until it is done. Switching between tasks causes you to lose focus and will add time to each.
Make the most of your daily commute. Catch up on reading if you take mass transit or listen to an audio book if you drive.
Set a specific time each day to make and receive telephone calls. Every time you stop to take a call it will require several minutes to refocus on what you were doing before the interruption.
When you need to have a conversation, plan what you want to communicate and get to the point.
