Are you wasting time? Is social media sucking up your productivity? Here at RNFM Radio, we want to encourage you to not waste time and get productive!
Kevin hates meetings! Conversations can be circular, and much time can be wasted in meetings, and many problems can be solved via email, shared documents, or simple phone calls.
As a committee member, you can ask a targeted questions, keep the group on task and adhering to a strict agenda, and focusing on action items.
Is a meeting necessary? Can it be done by phone instead? Can shared documents be used? Avoid long email threads!
Elizabeth likes to use a paper calendar, while Keith relies solely on a Google Calendar that can be synced to all of his devices. (Elizabeth and Keith also love spreadsheets!)
White boards, daily plans, and other organizational systems will help you manage your time best. What works for your brain?
You also need to cut distractions, folks!
And be sure to schedule time for self-care and spontaneity! (Schedule time for spontaneity???)
And remember that being unprepared and running late can cause unnecessary stress and wasted energy; how can you turn those patterns around?
