    3 Steps to a More Productive Day: Focus Tips For Managers

    Stop multi-tasking and focus on what you are good at.

    By Jayne Jenkins, CEO, Churchill Leadership Group We all have 24 hours in a day, but why does it feel like some managers get more done than others? Do they survive on 4 hours sleep like Margaret Thatcher? Maybe they don't have families or they possess magical superpowers?   For me I need 6-7 hours of sleep, and to be honest, there is enough data on human wellness out there to convince me not to give up this true "regeneration time."
