5 Time Savers You (Probably) Havent Tried Yet
1. Do tasks less frequently
Clean house every 10 days rather than every 7. Run a report every 6 weeks instead of every 4 weeks. Hold a meeting twice a month instead of every week.
2. Race yourself
Look at the clock & commit to have the task done by a specific time. You‚??ll stay focused, avoid distractions & probably work with higher quality.
3. Make the most of 15 minutes
Can you find an extra 15 minutes in your day to use more effectively? Is there "wasted‚?? time you can eliminate or a lower-valued task you can cut? Saving 15 minutes a day gives you a whopping 91 extra hours a year!
4. Have a list of small, easy tasks that take only a few minutes
Normally, of course, we want to work on big, important projects first. But often when we‚??re stuck, tired, upset or overwhelmed, it‚??s hard to get anything done & we waste time spinning our wheels. A list of small or micro tasks will help you to get something done and will jumpstart your productivity. And of course, it‚??s better to get even a small task done than nothing!
5. Work on a task or project for a certain amount of time
Instead of trying to complete a task at one time, say to yourself, ‚??I‚??ll work on this for 15 minutes and see how much I can get done.‚?? Stay focused and challenge yourself to really get as much done as possible. (This tip is especially effective for a task or project you‚??ve been putting off.)

The Myth of What We Manage
Perhaps it is merely semantics, but an underlying problem I find that people have as it relates to the success in their life lies in a proper understanding of what exactly it is that we manage. Think about it. We have time management (In fact I have a seminar on this very topic, some of which is excerpted below), and financial management, and relational management, weight management, career management, and many, many more.
Im Too Busy - Oh Really!
If I had a dollar or even better a pound for every time I'd heard a business leader say this I'd be very rich.
Self Improvement and Prioritising
The ability to be able to set priorities and deal with our most important tasks first is an essential skill for self improvement and achieving results.

We may feel we have so many things to do that we don't know even where to start.

Time is Money?

First Things Last
Years ago clients would tell me they could not identify their priorities. Now I hear them saying 'I know what my priorities are?I just can't get to them'.
Isn't it amazing that some people can produce huge results in the same 24 hours that we all have? Whether or not we realize it, we victimize ourselves by not appropriately deciding what to do with our time. Instead, we let our time decide what to do with us!
Spend Less Time at Work and Get More Done
Sounds too good to be true?
There are the golden rules that apply to time. If followed, your life will be successful. If you ignore these, however, you will always be scratching to catch up. Do not be one of the people you always here say "I don't know where the time went, it just flew by!".
Are you obsessed with getting everything just right? Do you do everything yourself because no one else can do it as well as you can? Do you believe that everything you do has to be absolutely perfect? Although striving for excellence is a good thing to do, demanding perfection in everything you do is not.

Time Management Lessons from a 3 Year Old
Zak is my three-year old godson. He is the apple of my eye along with his sisters Carley and Brenna. I was watching him the other day as he was preparing to assume a self-proclaimed role of 'Master of the Universe' while playing a game with some of his friends. I marveled at how prepared he was and how his plan included alternatives if there were any 'problems' in the scheme of things. He was, in fact, more focused on achieving his goal than just about anyone I've ever seen.
