The Time-Finder scans 150 time-saving opportunities

There are two main ways to save time: become more efficient (get your work done faster) and become more effective (deliver more impactful work in the same time). Through extensive analysis of over 120 external sources, including 50 studies in academic journals, we’ve identified 150 ways you can save time in your day. The Time-Finder compares your behaviors to these opportunities to see how much time you can save per day and where.

Average person can save 3 hr 21 min per day

The average savings across hundreds of Time-Finder takers is over 3 hours per day. While such large savings may seem unrealistic, recent experiments by Microsoft and others have shown that people are able to work 4 days/week rather than 5 or 5 hours/day rather than 8 and achieve the same results by making simple changes to their behaviors.

Most common opportunities exist in managing email and interruptions

There are 6 time-saving behaviors that over 75% of Time-Finder takers were not doing when they took the diagnostic. Four of those behaviors relate to how you manage your email and 2 relate to how you manage interruptions.

The most common opportunity: 90% of Time-Finder takers do not create ready-to-resume plans before yielding to interruptions.

Wasted time contributes to burnout

The average Time-Finder taker is experiencing symptoms of burnout more than once a month. They feel emotionally exhausted every 1-2 weeks and out of control and ineffective every 2-3 weeks. By identifying opportunities to save time and manage your work environment, the Time-Finder can help you reduce your risk and experience of burnout.

Stop Guessing How Productive You Are

The trouble with trying to determine how productive you are on your own is that most of the ways we lose time are not obvious to us. Think about it. You don’t realize that you lose over a minute every time you switch from the task you’re doing to check your email. Gain a real understanding with the Time-Finder.
