Scheduling your Time More Effectively

by Ramona Creel


  • eliminate distractions as much as possible
  • it's okay to ask not to be disturbed -- and to say "no"
  • close your door, turn off the ringer on your phone, etc.
  • set up guidelines for dealing with interruptions
  • who you are willing to interrupt work for and who will have to wait
  • don't be afraid to ask how long the interruption will take
  • then decide whether you have time to handle it now or later
  • ask if you need to handle the problem right at that exact moment
  • if not, schedule a time to take care of it later
  • when interrupted, leave a memory jogger of where you left off work
  • it will be easier to get back into the groove when you return
