  1. I can see how technology can be helpful. But it will also help if you will specify the type of technology that can hep for each problem.

    May I suggest there are two huge chunks of time many people indulge in wasting: too much media consumption. For once, listening to the news is often a waste of time. They change luttle hour to hour. Once a day might be enough, even industry news don’t change by the minute unless you are in high-frequency trading. But the biggest issue in my consulting practice is failing health in later years. What can be done about it? Go to the gym is the answer I hear. But no – you don’t have the time. Yet there are training regimes which you can apply (using nothing but your body weight!) that you can practice EVERYWHERE, at your desk, standing in line, waiting for the kettle to boil etc. You don’t need more than about 20 (!) minutes to replace what takes people usually the best part of three hours (getting to and from the gym, showering, dressing, talking, waiting for the machine to be free etc.).

  3. Tapping into what others have found helpful is excellent advice. But you have to ask to make that happen. So ask. Say, “I wonder if you can help me….?” Most people love giving advice when asked. Those you invite to help you will be happy to share what has works for them, help you devise a strategy and get started on the path to greater time management.

  4. Anita,

    Do you have a link to the survey?

    This topic is perfect for my new podcast show with Lotta Gergils Aston, talking about trends, influences, impacts, behaviors and more.

    We have started with a segment called practical lifehacks and this notion of “capturing small bits of time” and convert the bits and pieces into productive use in your worklife, is a perfect fit! 🙂
