Time Management – Two Important Things I Learned this Last Week

This last week I learned a great deal about being more productive. During a typical day most of us are fairly unproductive, right? Be honest now. We could probably stay focused and work a half a day and spend the other half doing something besides trying to convince ourselves we worked a whole day. But chats in the hall and office, internet excursions, trips to the copier making sure we walk by the bosses office so he or she can see we are busy, e-mail etc… can make for non productive moments and some times days. Be honest now… 


WatchTwo questions


  1. How many minutes do employees devote to a project before getting distracted?
  2. It takes workers how many minutes to get back to the original task after a distraction?


I will post the answers in my blog tomorrow and teach you how asking one important, but simple question, at the end of each day can increase your productivity 10 fold. I will also explain why checking e-mail can ruin your day. Stay tuned…


In the meantime what are your thoughts? Why does time management rarely work?
