If you constantly find yourself thinking “Where has the day gone?” or “I just have too much to do, and I never seem to get it all done”, then you probably are wasting a lot of time. Here are 3 of the biggest culprits: Every time you react to the ding of your email, it usually amounts to a 10-minute removal of your attention from the project at hand. Each time you hear the pop of your Facebook alert, you find yourself browsing. The TV in the background entices you to channel surf or catch up on what’s happening in the Ukraine. It all adds up to time stealing. Try this: Schedule your project work in 2-hour increments with no outside distractions. Limit your email reading to 2 or 3 times a day. Turn off your pops and dings and TV during your 2-hour work segments. Try it. It works.
