Who's stealing your time?

Do you ever reach the end of the day and wonder where the time went? Have you been trying
to get a task completed or a project started and never seem to get round to it?

If so, you could have some time thieves lurking. Time thieves will thwart your best intentions. They sometimes wear different disguises to make them hard to catch but really they are all interruptions or distractions to your precious working time. They could be unexpected phone calls (from colleagues as well as telemarketing); people calling by ‘just for a chat’; time spent looking for a file or document; letting emails take top priority as soon as they ping in; or spending valuable time clicking links instead of doing what you should be doing!

One way of finding out how many time thieves you have is to monitor how you spend your working day. If you’re interested, I have a form all ready for you to use – just email me and I’ll send it to you. Try it for a week and unmask your time thieves!
