Time Management Tips

Effective time management is critical in sales. If you manage your time properly, you don’t have to work 80 hours a week. Her are my top 10 tips. 

1. You cannot multitask – do one thing at a time

2. You must take a break at lunch – go outdoors for a walk and change the scenery 

3. You must limit the amount of hours you work per day. Any hours above 50 are non-productive

4. Start and finish your day at the same time

5. Do not check your emails as they come in because every time you check them its a 22 minute distraction. Check them at 8, 11, 2, and 5

6. Clear your desk of clutter – deal with a paper once and then trash it or file it

7. Avoid distractions like texting with your kids, Facebook and other online stuff

8. Plan your week on Sunday and stick to your plan

9. Review your week on Friday afternoon and see if you stayed on track

10. Consider Steven Coveys four quadrants
