Time wasting is a trap that all of us have fall into at one point or another. The funny thing is that wasting time doesn't just consist of checking Facebook or browsing Pinterest for what kind of pillows you should buy for your new couch. You could be wasting time on tasks that are part of your job, but aren't being done as effectively or efficiently as they could be. From Bruce's article the suggestion to go slower really hit home with me. Owning my own business means that I am going 50 miles per hour all day every day. When I look back on my day, I know there are some things that I could have been more clear on in a meeting to avoid a litany of emails back and forth over the next few days. My suggestion for all of those time wasters out there is to focus on value-add tasks during regular business hours and look to outsource or tackle administrative/back-office tasks after hours.
