We always don't have enough time to do all the tasks we need during a day. Why is it so? Most of us spend our time on some unimportant things which steal our time. Here are several time stealers and the tips which help you to avoid them:
How many times did you face with problems on your computer? Such as: restarting it several times a day, waiting for several minutes while the file you need will be opened and so on. When doing all these actions you loose your time. If you want to work productively it is very important to fix bugs in your computer or to buy a new one. Don't save money on the equipment as it will cost you more expensive.
Phone calls can be important and unimportant. If you need to call to someone, plan what you want to say before conversation. If you receive calls and messages on your cell phone, just turn off the sound and turn on a voice mail, later you can see all your calls and messages and decide which of them you need to answer immediately and which of them can wait. It is very useful if you can screen the calls on your normal phone, so you can answer on important calls and unimportant calls can be simply missed.
You can meet talkative people everywhere. If you have such kind of people at work, try to avoid them: don't talk to them first, if they call you, don't reply to their calls, as all these actions distract you from work.
Every person faced with traffic jams. You can avoid it if you go for a work earlier or later than usual rush hours. If you still have got to the traffic jam, try to use this time more beneficial, for example: look through your documents, make some important calls and so on. So you don't waste your time while being in traffic jam.
One of the moat powerful time killers are meetings. If you don't contribute anything to the meeting, try to find a way out of attending this meeting. If you can't escape a meeting, make a list of questions that must be discussed and solved during this meeting, so everyone has a time-limit to their conversations.
