Working harder isn’t the answer when you’re just keeping your head above water. But, you have a time management problem if, you ask, “What did I get done,” at the end of the day.
Research by FranklinCovey suggests that you spend 40% of your time on things that aren’t important to you or your organization. (From the book, The Five Choices)
- Decision management. Dealing with too many options and decisions.
- Attention management. Eliminate distractions.
- Energy management. Facing the drain, refueling your brain, and feeling like you’re accomplishing something.
