- Find a file system that works for you. If you can’t find it when you need it, it has no value. If your current filing system is not working, find another way. File by number, use a spreadsheet to track and search, or use software made for filing.
- To complete those dreaded tasks (such as filing), use a timer and set it for 10 or 15 minutes. When the time goes off, you get to stop. Reschedule the rest for a later time.
- Reward yourself and celebrate your project, tasks and goals no matter how minimal the advancement. Everything counts and gets you closer to the end results.
- One of the best timesavers is delegation or outsourcing. Do what you enjoy and what you are good at and leave the rest to others. Others enjoy doing what we don’t. It may cost you a little money but the savings of time, stress, frustration or even having to have it redone well outweigh the cost of hiring it out.
