Default I find these types of time-wasters particularly annoying...

With time as our key resource in business, we need to have ways to quickly know when a supposed prospect has any future or is just distracting us from other opportunities.

I found a few useful tips that could help you screen out time-wasters: ime+wasters

Which tips resonate with you?

I hate it when I feel people are "wasting my time"...

For me, perhaps the worst are people who seem to lie a lot. When I can't trust anything they say, I feel that listening to them about anything is actually wasting my time - because what they are telling me could be false!

This includes people who seem to think they know everything... No matter what the topic, they act like they know the answer. You can find this out, because they'll start talking like an expert on a topic you know about - and what they say will be wrong!

I like people who are able to admit that they don't know the answer, when they really don't know...

There is no shame in not knowing everything. Nobody in the universe knows everything!

Best wishes,
