21. Efficiency top tip – keep a notepad and pen on your bedside table

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Why is it that when you are just drifting off to sleep, you suddenly remember something really important – then you lie there worrying that you won't remember it in the morning. So write it down! Once you commit that important thought to paper, you can let it go – release it, so you float [...]

17. Efficiency top tip – find half an hour a day for admin not e-mails!

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Keep on top of things – filing papers/notes/ordering supplies/adding reminders to calendar. Did you know you can turn OFF the alarm that sounds when an e-mail hits your inbox? This can be very distracting and interrupts your thought process when trying to concentrate. Allocate certain times each day to attend to your e-mail when [...]
