- Double duty- when you watch tv, are you really watching it? If your task involves you having to write something creative or quick do so while listening to your fave tv show. In some instances it can even help you break that creative block. You can also double your prime time tv hour as your workout time, be creative and resourceful. A sit-up or 100 here, a squat or 50 there and you've completed a nice workout.
- Don't take time for granted- if you literally have less than 20 minutes to complete a task, do so with focus, vigor, and a winning attitude. Make it a game with yourself if you have to; just make sure it gets done right and in time.
- Break up the work- on many occasions I've written half a post in the morning and completed it in the middle of the day. Whether you get interrupted or have to stop, set yourself up for success when you return. Complete your thought you started and then come back later.
- Set yourself up for success- most of us know our schedule ahead of time, set yourself up so you don't have to rush as much. Whether that's laying out your clothes the night before, creating bullet points for a presentation, or creating blog posts as drafts the night before. When you're in a time crunch, being prepared absolutely helps you set yourself up for success.
Time is our biggest non-renewable resource so make sure you're not wasting it.
