To be successful and productive means mastering your time management and increasing productivity at the work place.

Deep Patel, the Author of A Paperboy’s Fable: 11 Principles of Success, suggest that to achieve great success and productivity means cutting out these 11 time wasters or ‘little distractions’’ from your life.

  • Multitasking
  • All things email
  • Social media without a purpose
  • Pointless meetings
  • Disorganized work environment
  • Too much socializing
  • Refusing to seek clarification
  • Online distractions
  • Too many breaks
  • Ignoring your mental exhaustion
  • No clear goal to motivate you

I totally agree with Deep Patel on these points. What do you think?
