Q: Since I got promoted, the extra work has been a strain. How do I balance my time?

A: Find ways to claw back some time, says Laura Vander­kam, a time­-use expert in Philadelphia. “If you can work from home one day a week, you’ll still have lots of time to see and interact with your colleagues, and skipping the commute gives you back that time,” she says.

Delegating a few work tasks to junior staffers can also help. It’s a classic win-win: Your employees get a chance to gain experience and prove their mettle while you get some precious free time back.
