Finding just one extra hour in the working day could be the secret to getting off the hamster wheel.
Pinpointing daily time wasters could not only make you more productive, but lead to an empowering sense of control and ability to focus.
Transforming from an overburdened worker into an organised leader is all about changing habits,Larry Lucas, director of Frontline Management Institute, says.
"It's easy to get distracted by all of the little things that come up – let's face it, there are always things to be done," he says.
"But if we focus our time on those little things we fail to work on the more important, although perhaps not so urgent things. Success comes from working on the longer term important things as well as dealing with the immediate urgent things."
Freeing up an extra hour each day can usually be achieved by planning your work at the end of each day for the following day, keeping a tight written schedule, cutting out time wasters and delegating work, Lucas says.

It's an unfortunate balance that many of us debate: a high paying job or one with a good work-life balance. In an ideal world you could have both, but that's not the reality for most people.
The answer is heavily dependent on your current finances, your financial obligations, your savings and saving goals, what you want out of your career, and what you care about most in life. It’s also dependent on where you are in your life right now; sometimes that kind of trade-off makes sense at one stage of your life but wouldn’t interest you during another stage
