Productive time

Many people find that they have certain times in the day when they are better at doing certain things. Some times of the day are better for thinking, some for doing and some for talking.

My clients who get the most done (in a period of time) understand when these times of the day are and allocate their work activities to these slots.

If the afternoon is the best time to have meetings, then this is when they are scheduled for. This leaves the morning free to do their strategic work and report writing.

From my observations people usually have similar times of the day for doing things, but we never discuss it openly. Could it be that by having this chat with our teams we could find better ways to organise our working days and get more done in the same amount of time?

Think about your own situation and when you feel at your best for doing certain things. Then consider rolling this idea out once you have changed the structure of your day.
