6. Organize.

Have a plan, coordinate a schedule, ensure you know the budget and outline details before you start a project so that you can allocate your time properly.

7. Review email only 3 times a day.

Do not let email redirect your day unless it is a crisis in progress. Check your email when you arrive at the office — 9:00am, at noon and at 3pm. Try to respond immediately to those issues that are easy, while saving items requiring more thought. Delete ads/spam immediately so it doesn’t up your mailbox and request to be removed from emails that are not important.

8. Manage the supply closet.

Until I put a lock on the cabinet, we were spending 3x the amount for office supplies. I also learned later that some people were using our supplies for their personal home offices or school supplies. It is an easy cost center that can get away from you costing thousands annually.

9. Manage your meetings and calls.

Always give yourself a chance to breathe between calls or meetings – at least 15-30 minutes so that you can collect your thoughts and maintain a sharp focus.

10. Dress comfortably.

Dress sharply for meetings but feel comfortable wearing functional attire around the office most of the day, as your comfort may help maintain your focus.
