The three-minute hour is fun, fast and effective. You’ll love it! Here’s how it works. Set aside an hour in your office to not be interrupted. Get together every loose end you can think of that you can do in three minutes or less, and do them.
Focus on such things as notes you’ve made on little pieces of paper, short calls where people are waiting for a quick answer. File loose papers, make dinner reservations and any other activities you can do in three minutes or less. If it can’t be done in three minutes or less, don’t do it.
At the end of the hour, your loose ends will be done and you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment.
