Save time by following this simple work from home tip.
Have you ever heard the saying "Kill 2 birds with one stone"? A
somewhat violent way of putting things in today's society. But
that's exactly what I'm doing today. Here's how..
I try to update my blog as often as I can, every 2 days in most
cases. Today is the day I've marked off on my calendar to update
it. Do you use a calendar to plan your schedule? It's a great
way to keep on top of things. Usually when I write and article
or blog entry it's on my computer. Today is a bit different
though, it's back to pen and paper. I'm a huge soccer fan and
today (as I write this) there's a semi final Champion's League
game live on TV. Any soccer fans will agree that a semi final CL
game is not only very exciting it also produces some real drama.
The two teams meeting today are PSV and AC Milan, two of the
biggest club teams from Holland and Italy respectively.
Instead of missing the game to work on this article, I simply
made a small change that is allowing me to watch the game live
on TV (I hate watching taped sports, since I always find out the
score before I get a chance to hit the play button on the vcr)
and write a draft of the article. All I did was replace the
keyboard for a note pad and pen. I guess you can say that I'm
killing 2 birds with one stone.
A small change in my routine and I'm working and enjoying a
great game of soccer at the same time.
Here's another way I do 2 things at the same time, that saves me
a considerable amount of time..
Two of the most time consuming things I do is package orders for
shipping, since I have to go through the orders, package them.
Address them and complete the necessary shipping documents
(especially if it's an overseas delivery - custom forms). And
the second being, burning the audio CDs that are part of the
training program that we market. Each package contains 3 cds and
I do between 5-10 packages at a time. Not only is this time
consuming, it slows down my computer considerably. To the point
where it's almost impossible to do anything else. To save time,
I try to burn the cds while I package orders to be shipped. This
way I get work done while my computer is occupied.
Cds get burnt and my packages are readied for shipping.
Can you think of things you can do at the same time that can
save you time? I'm sure you can find at least 2 things that you
can do together to save you some time.
The game ended with AC Milan winning, but full credit to PSV for
the determination they showed though they had to play in front
of over 65,000 hostile Milan fans, and being under constant
Milan pressure in the first half. On this day through they lost,
through the determination they showed I'm sure they've won over
several new fans.
All the best.
