We’ve all been guilty of saying there aren’t enough hours in the day, yet some days we get so much done we’re on a high, while others we feel as though we’re wading through knee deep mud. Why the difference? It’s not the hours in the day, it’s how we use those hours. How engaged we are, how focused we’ve been and how well we’ve managed our distractions. Email, phone calls, meetings that overrun and people at our desk can suck as much as two hours out of our work day, rapidly derailing our productivity and job satisfaction and leading us to add more hours to the day to catch up.
So how can you use your time well?
