About

Summary

Everyone wants to be more productive, to get more done in less time. But just speeding up your work isn't the answer. It's critical to make sure you're getting the important work done, not just the urgent stuff.

Because I know you're busy, I've written this book of short tips so you can grab and go. Look through the table of contents to identify the problem you're having, then try out my tips to solve it. Repeat as necessary.

Even if you just do a few things I suggest, you will be more productive. Some of the tips may seem obvious, but people overlook them. Others will seem less intuitive, but will help you think more objectively about how you work, so you can be more productive.

Defining Work

1. Define and write down the actual steps you will take to complete any project, even if you know them in your head. This also helps you know what not to do.

2. Be your own boss and delineate specifically what needs to be done. Then put on your employee hat and just get to work; no more deciding or second guessing or looking for new ideas.

3. The more clearly you define what your work is, the easier it is to see which details are important and not allow them to fall through the cracks.

4. The more specific you are, the more realistic you will be about your time.

"It's not enough to be busy. The question is: What are we busy about?

-- Henry David Thoreau

Prioritizing

5. Respect and honor your own priorities. Make sure you aren't putting the priorities of others at the top of your list.

6. Keep your priorities up to date. Things change; you can't set your priorities once and then forget about them.

7. Weigh your priorities against your available time and energy and schedule
