there are lost here levin ways you're wasting time and how to change that number one checking your email over and over i'm guilty of checking email numerous times throughout the day the problem i have rather slowly better with lots of room for improvement checking your email can waste a lot of time by dedicating your time and focus towards checking your email you may be loose the train of thought we should actually be something else i reckon check your email just a few times a day or even eke once a day number two being on organised being on can wait a significant amount of time and these too late fees stress lost either and more here some surprising statistics i found from simply order about being on organise the average person spends twelve days per year looking for things they can't find every day average office worker spends one point five hours looking for thing
in a recent survey fifty five percent a consumer stated they would save anywhere from sixteen to sixty minutes a day if they were organised and twenty three percent the people pay bills late and have to pay late fees because are unable to find their bills number three watching tv i love a good tv show but i can honestly say that i watch too much tv the average person watches tv for over thirty five hours her week key measure we could do by reclaiming just half of those hours each week number four gossiping while these too much time reading celebrity tabloids or if you talk about people a lot spreading gossip can be a huge waste of time jesting about the amazing things you do we focus on yourself instead of wasting so much time gossiping about others number five taking forever to get ready many of you spend way too much time getting ready in picking out their outfit by having
s clothing options and or choosing your outfit the night before you can save valuable minutes each day for more information i recommend checking out becoming minimalist blog post a reason successful people choosing to wear the same thing every day and were six now having to do list i have a constant to do list without it outfield last on organise and probably even confused about what to do i rely heavily on my to do list but putting it to do this together it's enough to be hard i keep my to do list on my phone ashes assume melissa things i need to do others find planners work well for them you were to do list will keep you on track seen off yet what needs to be done on a daily weekly or monthly basis which in turn gipsy motivated towards your goals number seven procrastinating procrastination in ways time as you may find anything else you can possibly do before completing a certain task then you might
the things that waste even more time such as just standing around watching tv cleaning the same area you ve already cleaned ten times a day and more is much better stan why your procrastinating and how decree create an action plan to stop this time wasting behaviour focusing on what you need to do you will stop wasting time number eight spending too much time on social media the average person spends many many hours on social media each week between pinterest facebook twitter insight ram snapchat and many others amy quite easy to waste entire day away if you're fine we are spending too much time on social media and admit is negatively impacting you you may want to close the accounts spending too much time on you can even create time block so you cannot access your account during certain periods of the day and so on number nine being negative you are wasting time when you're being negative instead of focusing on naked
like regrets in being mean you can be more productive by using this time for thing is that actually matter and return multitasking some people can multitask success but many people cannot with a large amount of time it takes to refocus on a new task save your cause only switching back and forth you have to spend time refocusing every single time sl realize your strengths and weaknesses to whether or not multitasking actually helps you save time number eleven hitting this news bun sleeping those two minutes after alarm goes off isn't going to change your life there many scientific studies proving that hitting this news bun does nothing good for you i know many people that their lives are golf anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour before they actually want to wake up i'm not gonna lie he used to do this as well and thought it was the only way i could get up a deafening did not work as i was felt extremely groggy
