Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Making the most of extra time, part of Time Management Tips Weekly.
- What do you do with those extra moments of time?…You know what I'm talking about,…those little minutes here and there,…perhaps where you're on the bus…or you're waiting for someone to arrive.…What do you do with that extra time?…Here are a few options to consider to make the most…of that time.…Number one is perhaps the most important, do nothing.…Does that sound strange?…I believe that there's a lot of value…in just allowing ourselves to enjoy where we are…and just experience the quiet.…
We do not have to constantly stimulate ourselves.…In fact, sometimes that gets in the way of productivity.…Number two is checking, particularly checking your email…or your voicemail.…Now, this is different than the full fledge processing…that I describe in Time Management Fundamentals,…this is simply glancing through a list of email…and asking yourself one question,…can this wait until my processing time?…If it can, then you just leave the email in the inbox,…but if it can't, then you're going to pick it up…and quickly do something about it.…
