Take the time to learn how to make the time. This article by Joe Mathews, Don Debolt and Deb Percival lists ten ways to make your time at work more effective. For instance, the authors suggest carrying a schedule along with you at all times, and to record where you’re spending your time. This will help you evaluate what tasks are taking up the majority of your time (and allow you to determine if those tasks are valuable enough to take up that time). They also recommend setting up times you expect to be interrupted – basically, open office hours that your staff and coworkers can come to you with questions or concerns.
