Top 10 Time Wasters – Continued

Here’s numbers 3 and 4:

3. Poor Planning

  • Implement a sound planning process.
  • Do not start a project unless you have reasonable clarity about the objective of the project.
  • Break the project down into specific, measurable activities and assign ownership for all activities.
  • Set specific deadlines or completion dates for all critical activities.
  • Document your plan in writing.

4.  Attempting To Do Too Much

  • Investigate why you are unable or reluctant to say no to new demands on your time and energy.
  • Apply the 80/20 Principle –  80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.
  • Learn to delegate freely and effectively.
  • Schedule flexible time into your daily routine to allow for interruptions and unexpected emergencies.
  • Develop a mental attitude that values quality instead of quantity.

I’ll post 2 more next week!

Have a positively productive week!
