Time Is Gold
What are your best time-saving strategies?
|Make primping time productive—I listen to new music while doing my makeup, and reply to text messages while fan-drying my hair. I attempted drinking coffee while dressing up once, but that didn't work out so well for me. —Marla, Deputy Editor in Chief|
|Getting rid of distractions such as TV or the Internet and really just focusing on one thing (multi-tasking doesn't always work since it divides your attention). —Mimi, Managing Editor|
|Although it's sometimes good to multi-task, I find that focusing on one task at a time allows you to finish it faster. Closing all social networking sites (like Facebook and Twitter) while working is also a sure way to save time! —Angel, Associate Features Editor|
|I can't think straight in the morning, so when it comes to shoots or trips, I always make sure everything is arranged and put away in order before I go to bed. —Sam, Associate Fashion Editor|
|I work on the road. I spend about three hours commuting every day, so I use that time to think, observe, and read. —Dyan, Assistant Entertainment Editor
|Whenever I need to finish a deadline, I try to go offline. Or at least stick to my Word document while working. Once I start opening multiple tabs, I won't ever get to the end of my project! —Macy, Web Managing Editor|
