9. Loving to Be Busy

For some people, business is almost like a drug. They thrive on the rush of having loads of work to do and not enough time to do it in. However, like all drugs, it is easy to become addicted. The problem is that this approach and mindset rarely precludes working at your best, and usually means working inefficiently and wasting time.

Instead of working in a rush and working to get a “buzz,” slow down and think about what you are doing. This way you’ll manage your time more effectively.

Do you make any of these common time management mistakes? Are you a serial offender or do you just lapse for a short period and then pull yourself back on track? I’d love to hear if you’ve made resolutions to be a better time manager this year.
