Working smart might sound really good to hear, but making it a reality might be a Nightmare. Is
very easy to plan your day by drafting out list of to do, but another thing is to know how to
manage your time to be able to get things done. Working smart is not just a skill you acquire, but
sometimes it requires you to master a process that will make it work for you. Sometimes when
you think of working smart, few things that comes to your mind is time management,
approaching task in a different way, taking strategic breaks, getting enough sleep.
But you need to ask yourself if there’s more you can be doing. After all, you’re already using

Platform, e,g Zoho Cliq, to get issues resolved quickly. A 30-minute meeting session can save a
minimum of 3 to four days of delay human action over emails.
Keep it short and simple
Being garrulous at a meeting or email to introduce yourself to a client or over emphasize on
same issues, can really waste lots of people’s time.
The smarter way is keeping it short and simple, practice “elevator speech”, which will help you
communicate your message to people in a very incisive and meaningful way.
The key to better productivity is working smarter and not harder. Working smarter
saves your precious time and energy for the things that really matter — your life goals, your
personal growth, your health and your relationships.
