First, iden­tify what’s im­por­tant in your life and make sure it truly re­flects your pri­or­i­ties. Next, draw firm bound­aries so that you can de­vote qual­ity time to th­ese high­pri­or­ity peo­ple and ac­tiv­i­ties. From there, it will be eas­ier to de­ter­mine what needs to be trimmed from the sched­ule.

If e-mail or web surf­ing sends you into a time-wast­ing spi­ral, es­tab­lish rules to keep you on task. That may mean turn­ing off e-mail no­ti­fi­ca­tions and re­ply­ing in batches dur­ing limited times each day. If you’re mind­lessly surf­ing web­sites when you should be get­ting work done, try us­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity soft­ware like Free­dom, Leech Block or Res­cue Time – they can help you to block dis­tract­ing web­sites and track your com­puter ac­tiv­i­ties.

At the same time, find ways to diplo­mat­i­cally limit your in­ter­ac­tions with less con­struc­tive peo­ple.
