No, I’m not talking about time-wasting on Facebook. Not even browsing the internet. They might actually be helpful, if you’re using them to relax or connect with people. I’m talking about the really dead time. The time-wasters so insidious that we don’t even notice them.
Concerned? You should be. Because if you’ve ever procrastinated over a birthday card, searched for a client file or back-door key, or improvised a solution because you haven’t got the kit you really need, you’re taking time away from the things that really matter. And my latest piece for the Huffington Post is for you.
The good news is that there are ways to beat the time-stealing demons. Being aware of what you’re doing is the first step, and there are practical ways to make changes to reclaim your time for something more interesting.
