FAMILY DAYS

 

If you are a working parent and hard pressed to get quality time with your child, consider a family day together

periodically, such as on the child's birthday, when you can take a day off school and work and spend the day at the park, zoo or some entertainment center.

 

MULTITASKING ON THE ROAD

 

It is reported that 71.4% of the drivers in a study were either eating or drinking while driving. 45.7% were grooming, 40% were reading or writing, and 34% were talking on the cell phone.  Driver inattention is the number one cause of traffic crashes. So it's a costly way of saving time.

 

EAT LIGHT LUNCHES FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE

 

People who ate large lunches performed worse than those who had eaten only a sandwich. Alertness and efficiency are at low ebb about two hours after one begins eating lunch.

 

PREVENTING UPWARD DELEGATION

 

You distribute a policy that staff may interrupt you if

a. They have a decision to make that exceeds their authority,

b. They require information that can only be obtained from you.

c. They are really truly stumped.

 

ON THE ROAD

 

The average person spends 73 minutes a day behind the wheel. The temptation is to use the time productively with such things as cell phone calls and educational audiotapes. But don't do anything that will decrease your awareness of the road conditions, traffic and surroundings. Safety is a good investment of time.

 

KEEPING IN TOUCH

 

So you won't forget to send cards to some of your friends and to save writing time, prepare a set or two of

pre-addressed, self-adhesive labels before leaving on your trip.

 

A MANAGER'S TIME

 

If you're too busy to manage, you're too busy to be a manager. Managers must take the time to plan, organize, staff, direct, control and innovate.

 

IT TAKES 21 DAYS TO FORM A HABIT

 

When putting time management ideas into practice, give them time. Nothing kills motivation like impatience.

 

SLOWING THE PACE OF TIME

 

If you're really enjoying yourself, getting lost in the activity of the moment, time does not progress in equal units.

 

OVERTIME CAN DECREASE PRODUCTIVITY

 

Overtime was not cost effective since after ten straight hours of work, fatigue sets in and procrastination plummets.

 

WORD PROCESSING SHORTCUT

 

To change caps to lower case, hold down the Shift key and press F3 with the cursor on the word you want changed. Keep pushing to go from lower case to upper and lower case.

 

LAW OF COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGE

 

You should assign, delegate or outsource any job that can be done at a wage or cost less than you earn.
