If you're a boss, you know that every day is a challenge to do better. This tip is based on the same research I used to develop my programs and the Working Supervisor's Support Kit .
Keep a List of Mini-Projects
A Mini-Project is something that you can do in an hour or less and that will either move you forward or help you catch up. Keep a list of them handy. Schedule work on a mini project at least once a week. Use mini-projects to fill time that's suddenly free, like when an appointment is cancelled at the last moment.
Keep your list of mini projects short. When the list gets up to around six projects, start scheduling time to complete a few.
If you find these tips helpful, you should consider
purchasing my Working Supervisor's Support Kit.
