main principles of planning time ↑
- Plan should before you start doing anything.New day, you need to plan the night before, the new weekly and monthly - at the end of the previous ones.In this case, a new day you begin immediately with the cases, and not with their planning.
- to distribute their time organizer and use a timer.Do not try to remember everything, because if you do something still forget the stress can not be avoided.

Like all keep up at work ↑
If you constantly have to interrupt your work because you need to perform other important cases, it is better to combine similar tasks in blocks.It breaks, as already mentioned, require further "acceleration".Follow the small volume and similar in nature things one by one: the decision of matters of official business by phone, discussion with the staff assignments, disassembly correspondence.Then you will save time appreciated.
Major tasks are performed in small parts, do not forget to set for yourself intermediate goals.When the result of the work of distant time, people willy-nilly, "shirk" from jobs, putting them "in the closet."No wonder Albert Einstein observed that many people like to chop wood only because the result is right for action.If the project is large, work on it a little, but constantly.
