  1. Sometimes, we are too perfectionist regarding tasks that are not essential at all. Perhaps, urgent but unimportant tasks should be done quickly and at a moment of the day when your energy levels is low and your brain is not fresh. Always give them a small amount of your time. Consider that your time is precious and you have to organize it according to your priorities.

  2. In general, do not complete a task as well as you can but as well as is required. You should consider: what results, costs, and standards of quality are expected, how many human and material resources are available, and their scheduled date.

  3. Life is not about working harder and harder, but about being smarter, more productive and effective. Besides, avoid wasting your time: check your email once or twice a day; implement time limits on your instant messaging apps and social media, avoid meetings without a clear purpose and getting too much information.

  4. You could multitask unimportant jobs, too. For example, you could take a call (be careful, avoid distractions while driving) or learn a foreign language while you are commuting to work, walking the dog, cleaning the house or making supper.
