In my last related post I had mentioned how prioritizing would help you save time and here is a little activity that you can do to reclaim your time.
Write down all the activities you do in a day and the amount of time you spend on each. Follow the format given below for each activity.
Optimum Usage (Yes / No )
Satisfaction (Yes / No )
Desired Change (Less / More)
Add comments on how you would accommodate backlogs if any.
Do you wish to include any other activity in your schedule?
How much time would you allocate for it?
Now look at the table and decide is that the kind of day you want to have?
If it is, what are you waiting for…put it into practice straight away!
