Invest in project management software and take an organizational skills training class. 
 
Project management software can reducing your workload by giving you a way to effectively organize each project, so that you can move smoothly from one task to the next and not waste precious time deciding what you need to do next and trying to keep track of what has already been done. Some software will also allow multiple users, so that it is easier to stay on task during a group project.
 
In fact, learning how to use project management software is part of the Project Management Training agenda. Since this is by far one of the most sought professional skills among corporate executives nowadays, perhaps pursuing project management skills via a formal training program is another possible career objective you can consider. 
 
Organizational skills training teaches you the fundamentals of staying organized, so that you can implement it into all areas of your life. This training helps you accomplish more during your work week and decreases the need to finish up your work after you have left the office.
 
I especially encourage the idea of organizational skills training that helps you focus on managing information, which is one of the corner stones of managing your work and time because most modern executives have a problem with information overload. 
This could be one of the reasons why we have trouble finding enough time to manage our work, simply because we have to deal with too much information.
 
Both project management software and organizational skills training can give you the tools that you need to get more done while you are at work, thus you will be able to bring less work home. This will keep you and your family happier, healthier, and allow you to enjoy your home life more.
