8 tips to help save 30 minutes a day

Who of us does not have to feel sorry for that days only 12:00 am! Especially at the end of the day, when we are really lacking some half an hour to finish. Of course, there is an option to do so at the expense of sleep. But it was acceptable again, and then we begin to suffer from lack of sleep.

As a rule, people who have chronic, not enough time not more than those who have all the time to. Just some manage them for their own benefit and for the cause, and his other "wasted": 5 minutes-it is so little, they don't change, and you can afford the extra five minutes to chat, to sit on a site by choosing this or that thing, or just look out the window. But if you think about it: 5 minutes aimlessly spent every hour, for 6:00 will make those already half an hour, which we so lacking at the end of the day.

French writer Gaston de Levis remarked: "what Time money: don't waste it, and you will have plenty of it.

How to organize ourselves, to not only manage to do everything scheduled, but also time to relax? "If you want to have a vacation, don't waste time in vain," wrote Benjamin Franklin, known not only as an American politician, scientist and inventor, depicted on the 100-dollar bill, but the author of the well-known aphorism "time is money", who discussed in his "Autobiography" plan to achieve moral perfection and eliminate bad habits.

Self-Organization rules is no big deal, and they are familiar to almost everyone. But here's a start to follow them is not so simple, and without work above is here. But the result is worth it.

As he wrote the same Benjamin Franklin, "every minute spent on the Organization of its work, saves you a whole hour.

1. More challenging work we carry out in the morning

Of course, this does not mean that barely opening her eyes and up, you should immediately take up work: whether physical or mental activity, they require the so-called retraction, to incorporate into your workflow. And for physical labour is from half an hour to an hour, and at mentally and more-from a half to two hours.

Thus, those who gets up at 7 am, peak efficiency falls by approximately 9:00. Such a high level is kept to around 12:00, followed by fatigue. After lunch a while we again goes for inclusion in the work, then the workability is improved, although its level is already lower than in the morning. And after 20:00 we are no longer able to do hard work.

It means that our work would be more productive if we distribute the workload level in accordance with the rhythms of efficiency: faster and of better quality in the morning will make a difficult case, and lighter leave at a time when our forces are on the wane.

By the way, if we solve the long-term challenges the same way distribute them is no longer on the day and the week. Remember the word "heavy" day Monday: indeed, Monday that compared to other working days a week minimum. It reaches its peak in Thursday and Friday.

Of course, everyone is different, but in general meaning is: in the days and hours when our highest uptime, we are going to finish their case twice as fast than if taking them able squeezed lemon.

2. Plan your day

Mark Twain joked: "never put off till tomorrow what you can as well do the day after tomorrow". Ironically belonged to plans and Arthur Conan Doyle. "In the best human plans always turns out to be a crack," he wrote.

And yet no plans anywhere, otherwise our lives will turn into chaos. And, as someone remarked, "If you don't have a plan for wealth, you have a poverty plan.

Preliminary plans for the day, made the previous day, will immediately start it with action, not wasting time thinking about the task ahead.

Those who have problems with planning, it will be available with the so-called matrix Eisenhower, who proposed to classify the case ahead based on the criteria of importance and urgency.

3. Group similar tasks

For example, we need to write a letter to multiple clients. Tried it immediately to start something different, no longer switch on this lesson. Because, as you know, to switch to another activity, brain need approximately 20 minutes.

By the way, with regard to email, checking the mailbox every 15 minutes usually leads to the fact that no matter what else we do not take the time. Not so much checking how much viewing emails, links, thinking of answers, etc. If we fished this weakness, better reserved for checking your e-mail strictly for 5 minutes in the morning, at lunch and in the evening, taking into account only the urgent letters and not lingering on reading letters that do not require an immediate response.

4. Bringing order to your desktop

Some people call the mess on his desk creative. Indeed, they are perfectly oriented in it and quickly find what they need. However, a creative mess leaves room for creative space in thoughts. For example, picture, wrong time hooked to the eyes when looking for a sharp pencil, can recall the pleasant and not-so-bygone days and permanently knock out from working. Or left on the desktop nedochitannyj detective would interfere with focus, enticing us quickly know who, why and why.

5. Fighting procrastination

To varying degrees, procrastination is characteristic of many people. A striking example is the procrastinator Oblomov from the eponymous novel and. Goncharova. People-prokrastinatory mentally ready for any activity they could build grandiose plans, but they are not ready to act immediately. Even the urgent and important cases they delay until the last, being distracted by extraneous, such as, once again, drink tea, and then abandoned altogether or make last-minute at the expense of quality. It turns out that day and spent, and the result is zero.

6. Learn to say "no"

That's like and plan we drew up, and mood workshop created, but calling a friend or relative and begins, for example, retell the content of the film that delighted. And us and stop its embarrassing. This situation can be repeated daily in different variations, so such cases can make a few blanks like "we urgently collects Guide, I'll call you tonight." Well and in turn itself is not worth the bother of friends nesrochnymi conversations and requests at a time when they are busy.

7. Enjoy the fruits of civilization

Pay utility bills and make other payments, buy airline tickets, book hotels, register to the doctor, etc. d. via the Internet, which will allow us to significantly save time and nerves.

Set up filters that will save us from obtrusive advertising and spam, distractions from the work.

8. Get up 30 minutes earlier

For many this is not an easy task, especially during the cold season. However, in an early rise many pros, and we understand that as soon as we find ourselves under a shower, zavarim coffee, will include music. And it's nice to get out of the House for a run only when the city wakes up and the noise of the machines have not yet raspugal songbirds! We will feel fresher and more productive work. If you can force yourself to get up a little earlier!

And when we have all of the cases begin to argue, remember the words of folk wisdom: "early risers, that God gives". As Benjamin Franklin said on that occasion: "The late risers, should run the whole day to night barely finish all its cases.
