Entrepreneurs always need to be alert to the next opportunity. But that can be hard to do when unscheduled appointments, meetings that run overtime, junk email messages, or a messy office all conspire to waste your time. There are innumerable techniques and products touted as the answer to making your time more productive and your life better-organized, but who has time to compare them, let alone learn how to use them? The good news is that you can take charge of your business life instead of letting it take charge of you, and you may not have to spend a dime. All you need is a small investment of time, to develop your own system for keeping track of the important things while filtering out everything else that gets in the way. These guidelines can help you create your own personalized path to productivity.
