Tony Yarrow, director/chairman, Wise Investments, Oxfordshire
As we are now in 2014, I have decided on my New Year's resolution. It's about trying to make the best use of time. I'm going to try and be realistic about what I can actually do in an hour, or a day, or a month, and try to concentrate on what matters most. I use my time best when I do things one at a time, giving each one my full attention until it's finished, rather than flitting from one thing to another, but I do have a tendency to flit.
One of my colleagues has a saying that there are things that are important and things that are urgent. Urgent things are often things that other people have left till the last minute, and have got into a panic about, and while always being willing to help, it's worth remembering that urgent things tend to get in the way of what's really important. I think the good use of time includes making sure that leisure time is spent as far as possible doing things that are really enjoyable, rather than just collapsing in a heap-something else I'm prone to doing.
