Every manager, entrepreneur, and office employee knows this:
Time is of the essence. And as long as there is such a thing as a deadline, it is going to stay that way.
Think about this:
Most people readily admit that they can’t manage their time properly. This is hardly surprising, given the amount of stress we have to deal with on a daily basis and the increasing tempo of our everyday lives. As a result of poor organizational skills, productivity drops and a huge chunk of work time is wasted.
According to a Microsoft study, most people use no more than 60% of their working hours productively.
Now, this finding doesn’t indicate that most people are lazy and fail to take their direct responsibilities seriously. The reason many people see their productivity plummet is that they don’t approach their work in the most efficient way possible.
