My friend Joan and I never go to lunch at noon. At her recommendation, we meet at 11:30 a.m. or 1 p.m., so we avoid the lunchtime crowds and can enjoy a relaxing time catching up with each other.
I love the practice of shifting when I do things to save time and avoid hassles. When I was a freelancer, I arranged my schedule so that I could do the grocery shopping on a weekday morning and steer clear of the frantic after-work rush during the week or the Saturday shopping frenzy. These days I shop early Sunday morning or on a weeknight after dinner, whenever possible.
My husband mows the lawn on Thursday evenings, saving the weekends for his hobby of restoring cars or for family outings.
When I worked in the Washington, D.C., area, a colleague had arranged his schedule so that he could commute on the Metro system during off-peak times, when the fares also are lower.
There are many ways to gain greater control over your time—and improve your productivity—by doing things when they are convenient for you. That’s why I’m thrilled that we are offering a “virtual” Productivity Training Camp, starting Oct. 30.
It would be great if you could join us in Las Vegas this December for the two-day training camp that shows you how to manage your time and projects. But if you can’t travel there, you can learn how to be more productive while you’re in your own office or at home, through our virtual training camp webinar. It’s the two-day camp broken into four webinars, offered every Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. Eastern time. You can even interact with the presenter.
