Time Management Tips
Time. Who's got any? I know most of us have a problem balancing work, kids, house, chores, activies, etc. What can you do to improve your focus?
If I knew the answer I'd be rich, but here are some tips to help you help yourself:
  1. Learn to say "no".
  2. Work is work. Play is play.
  3. Don't multitask when you're trying to spend time with your family.
  4. If you have trouble giving time to projects, family, etc. come up with a calendar with the times for each activity spelled out and stick with it.
  5. Do certain chores on certain days and/or times.
  6. Don't answer the phone when you're on a deadline, eating dinner, or at a function.
  7. Look at your emails every morning and don't look at the jokes or junk emails.
  8. Make a to do list each morning before work in order of importance.
  9. Don't go to every after hours event.
  10. Set business hours and don't accept phone calls after that time.

If you can try to do these you may keep some of your sanity!
