These include:

  • Talking for too long –chatting with friends for too long can eat up our time.
  • Day dreaming or thinking about none work matters losing or falling asleep when you should be working or reading.
  • Indecisiveness –not knowing which of the several tasks to work on and ending up not working on any of them. You waste time through being indecisive.
  • Disorganization –you can’t find information or the things you need in order to begin a task.
  • Uncontrolled media influence for example TV; internet can take up time that is meant for other activities.
  • Interruptions people without appointment

Allowing people to disturb you during periods that you have designated for work later then saying I am working go away or please come back later.
