Trouble Managing Your Time?











Trouble Managing Your Time? 

Try Tasks.

Tasks move work from the inbox to a “to do” pile. The process is similar to how you handle mail from your mailbox on the side of your house, sorting it into junk mail and bills. You don’t put the bills back into your mailbox, so why store work in your inbox?

Converting the evaluation of email and what/how long it takes to get something done into a task allows you to spend the time actually DOING the work as opposed to evaluating.

That’s why the minutes at the front of each task are so critical. It’s not the entire time to do the task but rather the minutes required for the next step in the job. The process for completing a work task is similar to eating a meal: one bite at a time. How does it work? See the illustration at the top.

Client Feedback

“Karen, I had no idea I waste 45 minutes a day on Facebook. Nearly everyone at my table said they do too. That’s four weeks a year that I’d rather use elsewhere.”
