    • I’m personally not fond of speaking on the phone since you usually end up talking about nonsense which you wouldn’t have done with a simple mail. But for this purpose (looking busy) I’m sure it’s a good idea.

  1. Facebook is the biggest culprit f why I procrastinate. This reminds me… Thanks Stefan! I fell motivated to cut down my facebooking time wasted 🙂

    • You’re welcome Liane. Truth to be told I’m not even a member of Facebook so I’m sure you will do just fine. 🙂

  2. Yes, there always seems like to many thngs to do and not enough time. I have also clamped down on tasks that consume to much time and it seems I can complete more then. We need to find the balance of completing tasks, life and then fun.

  3. Great point Stefan! Your right about a task will always take as much time you have available. Take for instance I have to perform an Internal Audit at work Well I was tasked to do this 3 months ago and believe it or not I actually started 3 months ago. I started off slow because I was like “I have time”. Now the task is due the end of this month and I am not done and it will probably take until the end of this month to get it done. Geez…I tried to start early to get done early, but it didn’t happen.

    I like the point about find your distractions and simply remove them. It reminds me of Lean Manufacturing where you look for the waste in the process and eliminate it remove it. Suddenly your manufacturing process doesn’t take as long. Kind of a simple idea, but you do need to sit down and think about it. Not all waste you can get rid of, but there is a lot out there when you really take a hard look at your process

  4. Hye, Stefan.

    Social networking like Facebok and Twitter maybe a huge distractions for people who use it for fun only. But, when we use it for business purpose, I believe, the time spent for social networking is valuable.
