Here are some ways to use time more wisely:
- Stop trying to do everything. That’s not your job. Your job as a leader is to continuously achieve goals through the efforts of your team. Delegate and share the load.
- Stay on message. Provide a strong and guiding voice through speeches, memos, tweets, emails and hallway or elevator interactions.
- Don’t let routine matters usurp important ones. Group routine matters into blocks of time and, if possible, delegate them to your assistant or a subject-area specialist.
