7 Office Time-Wasters To Avoid

  • Checking emails too frequently -

Limiting the number of times you look at your inbox can keep you moving swiftly; most messages can wait

  • Making your to-do list too long - 

While putting everything you need to do on paper might seem like a good idea, keeping your list small, with just the three or four most important tasks, will give you the impetus to finish.

  • Multitasking

Trying to focus on more than one thing at a time is a good way of ensuring that nothing is doen efficiently; finish one thing and then move onto the next.

  • Trying to be perfect

If you have to make sure that every single aspect of a task or project comes out perfectly, you're wasting the time you could be using to get the whole thing up and running.

  • Meetings

While you may need some office meetings to plan your next moves, too many meetings are just unnecessary; don't waste that time!

  • Being Too Agreeable

If you give yourself permission to say "NO" to requests from colleagues, you're really saying "YES" to your own needs for time.

  • Postponing the hardest task

Easier stuff can get done later when you're tired or worn out at the end of the day; get past the hard parts
