  • Appreciate the difference between important and urgent items
  • Create a reliable ‘bring forward’ filing system for time-specific documents
  • Manage interruptions

  • View delegating as an investment in developing staff

  • Do all of one type of activity in time blocks e.g. all phone calls, all e-mails
