      Cut down on the multi-taskingHow many times have you tried to do more than one job at the same time? We’ve all been there – we’ll be in the middle of writing a presentation or report when an email query comes in that we decide to deal with right then and there, or perhaps we decide to spend some time during a webinar putting together a spreadsheet. “Don’t open your email account as soon as you arrive at work,” says Alexander. “If you have something important to do, tackle it the minute you get into the office, and, crucially, before you open your email. That early extra hour can be a golden time to get things done. We tend to think we’ll check emails or voicemails for five minutes, but then we get sucked into whatever those messages throw up and before you know it two hours have gone by and your important task isn’t even started. If you delay opening your email for an hour you will get a huge amount tackled and – let’s be honest – most emails can wait for an hour before you respond.”A recent study found that multi-tasking reduces productivity by 40%, so instead of trying to do umpteen things at the same time organise your day into time slots where you can focus on each particular job with no distractions.

      Get the messageWrite funny and/or inspiring notes to yourself for the future in your diary, such as:Stay amazing.Take a break.Make sure you eat some chocolate at 3pm – you deserve it.Or stick Post-it notes around the house with a little wit and wisdom for the day written on them.

      2. Write a ‘note to self.’ Hang a piece of graphic art that amuses you or reminds you of a life truth. Or simply write a bit of wit or wisdom on a sticky note and put it up somewhere in the house. On a future date in your calendar, write an inspiring or funny note, such as “Stay amazing,” “Take a break” or “Eat chocolate at 3 p.m.”

      As this part of the flat is sometimes used as a guest bedroom, a pull-down bed has been incorporated into the cabinetry behind the green armchair. “It’s a very clean, sleek space, but we’ve added interest with some iconic pieces of furniture. The books along the top of the cabinets also inject color into the scheme, plus the shelf provides essential storage for their burgeoning collection,” Hunjan says. “It’s a very versatile flat. Some of the cabinets in the kitchen are also used as concealed bookshelves to keep the scheme uncluttered.” Wall bed: Clei

      Halten Sie schriftlich fest, was Sie tunWundern Sie sich manchmal, wo die Zeit geblieben ist? Dann ist es eine gute Idee, in einem Logbuch festzuhalten, womit Sie Ihren Tag verbracht haben. Schreiben Sie alle Aktivitäten auf – und die Zeit, die Sie damit verbringen. So finden Sie heraus, welche Aufgaben mehr Zeit kosten als andere. Schauen Sie sich diese Aufgaben an und fragen Sie sich, wie produktiv die Zeit wirklich war, die Sie auf diese Weise genutzt haben. Vielleicht verbringen Sie zu viel Zeit mit Dingen, die nicht zum gewünschten Ergebnis führen?Rebecca Alexander, Führungskräfte-Coach bei The Coaching Studio, rät: „Es hilft oft weiter, wenn Sie die Aufgaben, die Sie sich am Anfang der Woche stellen, mit den Ergebnissen vergleichen, die Sie am Ende der Woche erreicht haben. Wenn zwischen dem, was Sie sich vornehmen, und dem, was Sie erreichen, eine dauerhafte Lücke klafft, dann wird es Zeit, herauszufinden, ob Sie sich zu viel vornehmen, ob Sie Zeit mit unnötigen Dingen verbringen oder ob Routineaufgaben zu viel Zeit kosten, weil es an Vertrauen, an Hilfsmitteln oder an Motivation fehlt. Egal, welche dieser drei Ursachen zutrifft (und es können auch mehrere sein): Legen Sie in einem Plan fest, wie Sie diese Schwierigkeiten angehen wollen. Halten Sie diesen Plan zwei Wochen lang durch und schauen Sie sich anschließend an, was davon funktioniert hat.“
