Have you met anyone recently who has said, ‘I have so much time on my hands I almost don’t know what to do with it.’

I have just been at a networking event for Amanda Gome’s Smart Company. All of the speakers said the one thing that we know about SMEs is that they are ‘time poor’.

This struck me….I know many people in large corporations who are also busy…I know many Mums at home who are very time challenged (night and day). Here’s the deal. We all get 24 hours a day…it is a very fair distribution of resources. We all get the same amount. (Of course it’s what we do with it that makes the real difference).

I’ve already shared with you some of my little tricks for keeping me focussed and productive…only turning on email twice a day is a big one.

If you had all the time in the world …what would you do right now? Instead of worrying about all the things that you are not doing. Being really focussed on the one thing that I must do has given me great breakthroughs in productivity.

I write down what is the one thing that I must get done today….and just do it.

Do share your tips on staying focussed.

  1. Great post Naomi. Very eloquently put. I shared it with my readers.

    I like the idea of only turning email on twice a day. I admit, I’m a victim to "Oh, I got an email … have to act on it right away" syndrome. I think I’ll try out the twice a day approach.

    As for tips on staying focused, I spend a lot of time online with my SEO business. As you can imagine, there are distractions at every turn. So I keep a notepad on my desk. If I see something I want to revisit, I write it down and get back to what I was doing. Otherwise, I’d spend my days wandering down unknown passageways!

    Take care.
