If I have a task to complete, I turn off the sound on my laptop and this way I just don’t know if I have had any new emails or social media messages until after I have finished my task.
- The hardest time management technique to learn is to say ‘no’. If you haven’t got the time to do other tasks or have too much to do already, there is nothing wrong with saying no. Be realistic about what you can do and what you just can’t do.

It can really help you focus on getting as much done as possible in a set time frame.
