You should start with profiling your code to see what takes longest time.

If you're dealing with datasets, consider using the data.table package. It's goal is to be fast and memory efficient, and it achieves that gloriously.

Also, check out The R Inferno, specifically chapters 2 (Growing Objects) and 3 (Failing to Vectorize).

The Efficient R Programming online book is another good resource after you have done profiling.
