It’s the problem we all face at work: how to manage your time. You’re so overwhelmed with meetings and emails that you wonder if you’re really getting anything done. . . often, you’re not.
One expert Cal Newport has an answer to how to make sure you’re getting ahead in your business while being less stressed and enjoying your work more.
Here is a quick summary of Cal Newport’s 5 tips on how to Manage Your Time
- Don’t schedule distractions. Schedule deep work: Block hours for what really matters, not just for anything with a designated start time.
- Keep a scoreboard for deep work: And make it visible. The point is to shame yourself if you’re not up to snuff.
- Stop saying “yes” if you want to get things done: Want an example of how this works? Email me and ask me to “jump on a call.”
- Have a “Deep Work Ritual”: Whatever gets you ready to crank. Hiding in a conference room and throwing your phone into an abyss is a good one.
- Ask your boss how much time they want you spending on deep vs shallow work: If they say “100% shallow”, feel free to ignore everything above.
