Quick Tips for Effective Time Management

  1. Set Clear Priorities: Each morning, pick three main tasks as your top priority and focus your efforts on completing them first.

  2. Use the Pomodoro Technique: Work in blocks of 25 minutes followed by a 5-minute break to maintain concentration and avoid burnout.

  3. Limit Email Time: Designate specific times in your day to check emails rather than responding to them as they arrive, to avoid constant distractions.

This Week’s Challenge: The One-Touch Rule

This week, try applying the one-touch rule to your workflow. Whenever you pick up a task, commit to either completing it, delegating it, or scheduling a time to handle it later. No task should be touched more than once without making a decision. Share your experiences with us by the end of the week!
