A Few Ways to Work Smarter

I have been looking for a few pointers when it comes to getting more done in less time. These three things found their way onto my desk…

Look at your to-do list, figure out where you have blocks of time to act on those items, then prioritize.

Take technology shortcuts

by setting up a Microsoft Office rule that sorts incoming emails to specific folders. Or keep your current projects in a cloud folder so they’re accessible on the go. If you don’t know how, (me!) ask someone who’s tech-savvy to help.

Figure out what distracts you.

Identify what is blocking your ability to give all of your attention to what needs your attention. Is it the constant ding of emails? Mute the alert sound. Is it employees or colleagues who need “just a minute” of your time? Block off visitation hours.
