Decide What's Worth Your Time!
Your Management Tip of the Month!

Most business leaders are deluged with demands for their time, resources, and advice on a daily basis. Knowing which requests to take on is a critical skill and can be the difference between being dragged down by extraneous commitments and having the time and space to do your own job well. Before saying yes to the next request you need to ask yourself these three basic questions:

1. Am I the best person to give the needed information?
2. Is this the right moment or is it compromising my/their time?
3. Do I have enough information to make the appropriate suggestion?

If the answer to any of these questions is "no," then don't take on the commitment. Pass it on to the right person, schedule it for a future time, or wait until you have the information you need.

This Management Tip was adapted from "The Worth-Your-Time Test" by Peter Bregman.
