Where are your time traps?

Take a moment to think about how to spend a normal eight-, ten-, or twelve-hour workday. What do you waste the most time with?

Do you also consider how much time is lost every day? What could you do to prevent or at least mitigate this erosion of your time, energy and enthusiasm? It is best to answer these questions in writing.

This is how employees can help - and not so

In addition to your own time, employees are your most important asset. Because these take away your work and give you time. If it's the right people.

Because many do their job really well - these are not your problem. But other employees always manage to delegate work upwards. So to you! What to do about it?

Always these distractions

Too often we are distracted - more or less unnoticed - by something more or less important, because others open their minds with us, which we would not have without them.

Each of us knows from our own experience how energizing it can be when we are sitting at a high concentration on an important project and are confronted with questions like these:

  • "Chefwhat Christmas cards should we take now? ”
  • "Dad, can my girlfriend sleep with me today?"
  • "Honey, can you fill up the car for me afterwards?"
  • "I can't find my car key, maybe you know where it could be?"
  • “Can you quickly send me this eMail with the directions sketch?”

Everyone does what he has been hired for!

The fact that your employees delegate work to the top means, in the worst case, that your desk is full and your employee goes home on time. Do not allow employees to submit work to you.

Everyone has to do the tasks for which he was hired. Because it is not that your employees could not do their own job. But if you allow you the possibility to make decisions on you, they will also make use of this opportunity - and ample.

Paragraph One: Everyone solves his

That's why I discovered the principle “Paragraph One: Everyone Solves His” some time ago to avoid many such time thieves. This is about much more than a pure delegation.

Properly applied, this strategy will lead to a lasting change in our basic approach to our own work practices and those of our environment, and thus to increased productivity for all. But how can this be put into practice? For some time now, I recommend using a doorplate with the inscription:

Stop! What would you do if I were not there?

time is money

For very stubborn cases, the subtitles are recommended: "Then why don't you do it?" or "What are you waiting for?"

Once we realize that our time is worth a lot of money, we will deal with it differently. We will only do what is really important and eliminate everything that steals us time. We will focus our efforts on what we need to achieve in order to achieve our goals.

Stopping time is more efficient

By the way: A long-term survey of seminar participants who now work with the “STOP!” Sign has shown that this measure alone enabled them to save an average of 52 minutes per week.

If we succeed in doing so, we can only win - efficiency and productivity as well as personal quality of life.
