As we are pulled in several directions each day with people and tasks demanding our time; then we have the inevitable; tasks left undone. Here are 3 quick tips to help you make the most of each day.
E-mails can be huge time wasters, screen e-mails and take your time in responding to queries and requests that are not urgent. Remember; the faster you respond the more e-mails will be coming at you with even more requests or queries and at times; time wasting questions.
- Templates and forms
Use a standard template/form to reply to queries or requests that you often deal with. If you find you are often responding to a certain type of query or making requests then set up pre-set responses and request letters that you can use.
- Get help
Stop doing it all and hire or use help you already have. Outsource tasks and while you are at it do not micro manage. Empower the task owner to make decisions so that they do not have to return to you for a yes/no … just so you are not distracted from doing task that can bring you greater value.
