5 More Tips to Beat Time at Work

  1. Take five minutes before every call and task to decide what result you want to attain. This will help you know what success looks like before you start. And it will also slow time down. Take five minutes after each call and activity to determine whether your desired result was achieved. If not, what was missing?
  2. Put up a “Do not disturb” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
  3. Practice not answering the phone just because it’s ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instant messaging. Don’t instantly give people your attention unless it’s absolutely crucial in your business to offer an immediate human response. Instead, schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls.
  4. Block out other distractions like Facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
  5. Remember that it’s impossible to get everything done. Also remember that odds are good that 20 % of your thoughts & and activities produce 80 % of your results.
