Your filing system – is it effective? Misfiling causes delays affecting your productivity. Now, let’s talk about Time wasting thieves – yes they should be in jail like any other thief. Amongst the many, interruptions are considered as one of the timewasters, this is where we must learn to say NO, we don’t need to be rude to do this, we will say something like “I am unable to deal with this now, please will you come back in 20 minutes” Interpersonal skills and attitude, too, avoid time wasting, this avoids conflict which wastes time and energy.
