Reset Your Thinking – Day 19 Time Wasters
Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” –William Shakespeare
Do you have a “time-waster,” of which you are guilty? Mine is being on the Internet too long. I find that if I go online at the end of my workday or at least until I finish the most important tasks of the day, I am more productive and less likely to “wander” around in cyberspace.
Time is a very precious resource. The fact is that regardless of how well you manage time, at the end of a day, you will still only have had 24 hours. In one year there are still only 8,760 hours. The key is using your time efficiently and eliminating time wasters from your day. Your attitudes and behaviors affect how you use your time. Below are some examples of ineffective use of time. By substituting what’s not working for you with a more effective behavior and/or attitude you’re on the road to managing your time. You can start with..
- Less Interruptions/Distractions
- Organizing and planning your dayIm
- Implementing.. stop putting off things to do-procrastinator
- Being easy on yourself lighten up perfectionist
- Stop trying to do everything yourself
- Evaluating the task – take on as much as you can handle
- Having a crisis management plan in place
- Limiting your socializing (have a time frame)
- Retooling yourself if you’re lacking in skills
Time is of the essence, this is the time to be more productive, more efficient. Stop wasting time. Take the time to reflect, access and document how and where you’re wasting your time. #ResetYourThinking #StopWastingTime
