Friday Fast Tip: Optimize your time

We are all busy and seem to only be getting busier. Optimizing your time and energy is critical. A few ideas on how to do so:

  • Make time! This seems counter-intuitive or too obvious, but the truth is we often don’t make the proper time for things. We get caught up trying to do too many things at once and don’t accomplish as much as we could. So set aside time for specific tasks.
  • Be realistic: Sometimes you have to say no, you can’t take on everything. You need to have a good understanding of your capacity and commitments before taking on anything new. Set expectations in advance and don’t promise what is impossible to deliver.
  • Take a break: Again, you might be thinking, how can stopping make me more productive? We all need time to recover and re-energize. By taking strategic breaks we can renew and refocus.
