Tips To Save Time and Simplify Your Day
Every day I head to work and think I just would love to have a simple day. Most of the time this does not happen for me, but I hold out hope that it will. Here are some great tips to help you try to have a simple day as well
What comes first with most importance is what needs to be done first. There is just so much that you can get done and some things on the list must be done early or hold more of an importance than other items on the list. Getting the most important, hardest task or one that needs done immediately done first then you will feel self pride for getting it done allowing you to lead on to other jobs as well.
Take one step at a time. While many say that multi-tasking will get the jobs done it may not be what you need to do. Getting one task done at a time, makes sure it is done correctly before moving on to the next one
Work with less distractions. Shut off email, social networks, phones, or anything that will distract you from getting the job done.
Email length may make the difference between being read and answered and not. Too long or too short neither is good. It is best to find a spot in the middle somewhere. Five sentences just like the five sentence paragraph may be all that you need. Offer a friendly greeting, a topic sentence (what email is about) why it is important and a polite closing.
Life has been made simpler for many because technology has made many jobs automate. Tasks like banking, scheduling etc... have been made easier and we should take advantage of this. Likewise paperwork can be eliminated by doing tasks electronically. Not only will the time you save be worth it but the trees will save you as well.
Hopefully these tips will help you save time and your life will be just a bit more simpler.
