Does the computer feel like a time sink? Don't worry, there are many ways to save time at the computer. Let's take a look:
Strategy 1: Delete social media
While it may sound extreme, simply deleting your social media accounts will buy you back a lot of time in your week. Why not try it? Not everyone is on the same social media anyway, so people will use text messaging and other ways to contact you to invite you to a party. You can certainly manage just fine without social media. If the thought of giving it up is hard, remind yourself of all the time you'll gain back.
Strategy 2: Only use the computer in certain blocks of time
In other words, designate other blocks of time (times when you don't actually need the computer) to be computer-free. Use these blocks of time to catch up on other tasks or errands. You'll be more productive in the long run.
Strategy 3: When you are about to use the computer for something productive, stick only to those goals
Don't be tempted to get sidetracked into other things while you're on the computer. If you do want to casually read the news, do it on your phone during what I call "dead time" - time that would otherwise not be put to productive use, like if you're in a waiting room, or something like that.
Strategy 4: Hide the distracting applications from yourself
Put your distracting applications like games, etc, into a folder or somewhere that's just a little harder to find. It will make you think twice before using these, although they are still there for if you need them.
The above 4 strategies are some great ways to save time at the computer. Now you will have more time available to you in your day.
