Setting limits to calls, meetings and conversations can save you lots of time, even up to an extra hour a day. At the beginning of a meeting or a call inform your caller that you only have a few minutes to complete the call. Most people become more concentrated and go directly to the point when they are under the threat of a deadline. If there is something more elaborate to discuss you can always agree to reconvene at later time or set up a subsequent meeting to deal with it.
