Latest Tips
#8 DON'T REINVENT THE WHEEL: This is crucial. Unless "it's" broken, don't reinvent the wheel. If there is a system, or a form, or a spreadsheet, or an order that already is in effect and it's working fine, continue to use it. Or use it and change it for the current events or information. For example, if you have been charged with making a new contact list for your boss's clients, search for it in the computer database or company intranet. Nine times out of ten, there already is a contact list that just needs to be updated, "pretty-fied," and saved under a new name. Then, wah-lah! You've got your project finished with precious time to boot.
#13 EAT RIGHT: Attention all eaters. Back away from the fast food! It is not your friend for so many reasons (see also Tip #14).  Eat right when you're on the job. You're going to feel much more energetic which will make you more productive. And how can anyone else compete with you for that promotion when you're energetically kicking butt at your job?
#3 HAVE A GUILTY PLEASURE: Keep something nice and neat in your work area that you can sneak whenever you need a moment. Whether it's chocolate, some music, a sketchpad, hand lotion or a cookie. Whatever it is, keep it close for those occasional times when you can focus on you for a minute. You'll feel much better.
