Time tips

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIVING -

STEVE Hoover, CEO of tech com­pany PARC, shares how he man­ages man­age his time (and work) in the dig­i­tal age:

Buy online: Cut out the time spent shop­ping for toi­letries and other re­peat pur­chases.

Com­bine ex­er­cise and work when you can. Oneon-one meet­ings while walk­ing helps to keep you fit. A change in scenery can also open peo­ple up and make for a bet­ter meet­ing.

You are in charge of your smart­phone and not the other way around. Don’t try to im­press peo­ple by how fast you re­spond to an e-mail that doesn’t need a quick re­sponse. Al­low your mind to let go of work: Take time away from your phone.

Be­fore go­ing on va­ca­tion, for­mally del­e­gate tasks so you can re­ally let go of your e-mail and phone meet­ings. – San Jose Mer­cury News/McClatchyTri­bune In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices
