4 ways top execs employ their time

Most people think the key to being productive is working flat-out 100 percent of the time. Not so, says John Zenger, former chairman of the Times Mirror Group.

Zenger, who has studied highly productive people, says the most productive executives:
  1. Vary the pace. For unfamiliar new activities, they slow down and work methodically until they’ve learned what they need to know. Yet, in activities in which they’re already experts, they work quickly.

  2. Orient themselves toward garnering big returns, fast. When possible, their goal is to seek the biggest advantage in the least amount of time.

  3. Eschew monolithic project management. When handling complex projects, they multitask by letting different implementation teams handle different parts of the project.

  4. Accelerate different parts of big projects, whenever possible. Example: If research they conducted last year gives them a leg up on a big project currently on their plate, they plug it in.
