Recommendations to improve with time efficiency?

Four ideas: 1. Learn to dictate. Will triple the speed with which you can generate drafts. 2. Delegate everything you can delegate. 3. Because it takes 20 mins to regain concentration after an email or other interruption, don’t work with email alerts turned on or an email screen open. Instead, schedule extended times for concentrated work (in a conference room if need be) and deal with email at scheduled intervals. 4. Avoid the tyranny of the urgent by prioritizing the most important thing first.

Find out when your mind is sharpest. For me it is early morning, others it is late at night etc and schedule your toughest tasks (eg a tough brief) for those times. Handle easier tasks in lulls between your more efficient time or after or before those peak productivity hours.

Put blocks in your schedule so you can estimate how long something will take you to draft. For me, once a block starts I ignore everything else (no email alerts, no chat windows) and just get down to work. Close your door and make sure nobody interrupts you. That way your billable hours actually reflect the work you did and not mind wandering time .

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive
