Tips for the Crazy Busy
Welcome to the club! Being crazy busy is a modern epidemic. I wrote a book about it, called Crazy Busy: Overbooked, Overstretched, and About to Snap. I am going to post in my blog now and then tips that I have come across in how to deal with being crazy busy.
My tip for today came from an executive in New York City. She found that she was spending too much time doing email. To remedy the situation she did something so simple that anyone could do it. She put her computer on a table behind her. Now, in order to do email, she has to swivel around in her chair. This means that she much make a conscious decision to do so, instead of just mindlessly clicking on her email. She told me this simple step has saved her oodles of time!
I welcome hearing tips from all of you!!
