What Are The 7 Most Common Time Wasters?

Hi again.


FYI, I’m not intending to keep talking about Smart Bro in every article I write (or put) in this blog. I read the following article and found that it may be useful to some of you, so here you go:


What Are The 7 Most Common Time Wasters?


Check Out The Following!


1. Email.


Email is without a doubt a very important factor in operating your Online business. After you’ve mastered sending and receiving email, there’s no limit to the people or organizations you can reach at the press of the send button.

There is a downside to the marvelous convenience of email. Think of all the time the average business person spends checking email accounts. You could easily waste half your work day on email.


2. Pop Ups.


Are you bombarded with pop ups at every turn on the Internet? Pop ups will slow down your surfing and it’s down right frustrating trying to get rid of these annoying unwanted ads. As you know, Internet Explorer is not packaged with a good pop up blocker. So you will definitely need to download one if you plan to surf the Internet regularly. You can easily use Smart Bro integrated popup killer to get rid of this problem.


3. Surfing.


How often do you plan to check a website resource, and click unrelated links.

Fight mindless surfing!

Remember your goal. Ignore links that distract you from your objective. If you are looking for information on the latest “Computer Virus Hoax” why are you visiting music sites or downloading screen savers?


LOOOL! 🙂 I like this one.


4. Forgetting To Write Down Your Objectives.


Open Notepad (or Quick Notes in Smart Bro ) or write what you plan to do on a sticky note. And check off the goals as you accomplish them. This listing method works great if you overloaded with too many task.


5. Time Limits.


Learn To Set a time limit! This will force you to focus on accomplishing your objective within the designated time frame. For example, limit yourself to 30 minutes checking email, or 1 hour researching a topic.


6. Telephone/Television Distractions.


Unplug your telephone. Turn off that television. The telephone is a big time waster. Ignore urges to check your voice mail or answering machine for messages every few minutes. Only return important calls.

No more soaps! That’s right! While you are working tape your favorite programs. Watch them after business hours.


7. Family Distractions:


Make your home office “Off Limit” during work hours. Tell family members to handle any minor problems while you are at your computer. Close the door to your office. Place a sign on it “Do Not Disturb During Work Hours.”
