Wasting time in PowerPoint is not about how you use the tools but the order you do things.

Rather than typing a little, formatting a little, inserting objects and tweaking them (after which you type, format, and tweak some more), get all your text in first. Avoid distraction by working in Out­­­­line view from the Navigation Pane. Type your slide title, then tab to the right to create a bullet point. Press tab for another bullet. Shift+tab back to the left adds another slide. Then, work in the Slide Master to create the overall look, only once! Now, add objects. Next, make adjustments.
