How to Find an Extra Hour in Your Day

SONY DSCFastCompany recently did an article on The Hidden Trick to Finding an Extra Hour In Your Work Day. The moral of the story is that there are a few easy tricks to finding an extra hour. For example:

  • Turn off the TV.
  • Schedule 45 minute meetings instead of 1 hour ones.
  • Limit conference calls to 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes.
  • Unsubscribe from spam emails or send unimportant emails to a different folder.
  • Only check email at certain times of the day.

However, this isn’t necessarily the answer. The trick to finding a full hour is that you need to seriously reanalyze your work habits. You need to break down your processes and find the ones that produce the most results in the least amount of time. That’s no easy feat. But once it’s done, you’ll be more productive than ever. So productive in fact, that you might just find yourself with an extra hour at the end of each day.
