  • Pool your projects. Try scheduling meetings and errands on the same days to reduce the amount of time you spend out of the office.
  • Make the most of your downtime. You can skim publications, catch up on your mail and make to-do lists while waiting in line at the bank or sitting in your doctor's office.
  • Use technology to save time. Use mail-merge lists, macros, and templates and form letters when appropriate.
  • Most important, learn to delegate. Ask your family for help on the homefront, and consider hiring a student to help with small office tasks.
