What’s the one thing we all want more of but never have enough of? You guessed it TIME! Time or lack thereof, is such a great dilemma that most people put “better Time Management” as their New Year’s resolution every year and yet never really get around to making it happen. Knapp Consultants offers you the ideal solution! We specialize in helping people make better use of their time so they can accomplish their goals and get on a direct path to success. We’ve dedicated our first 2011 blogs to this very important topic. Please click here to view Time Management Tips – Part 1 or here to view Time Management Tips – Part 2.
Below are more tips to help you better manage your time:
- Share the burden – As any quilter knows, many hands make light work, especially when tackling tedious or large tasks. Performance of dreaded chores like the annual inventory can take on a party atmosphere when many are involved and frequent breaks are scheduled.
- Seize the moment – We all have a tendency to put off minor, less important tasks, and we also spend significant chunks of time holding on the phone or waiting in line. Can you see an opportunity here? Make a list of tasks that take five, ten, or twenty minutes, and keep the materials you need to do these tasks handy. That way, when you’re put on hold or stuck in line, you can pull out that small job and finish it up.
- Emulate others – Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. If someone else always seems to be ahead of the game, watch and learn. If someone else has a speedier way of doing something, copy it. If you’re having trouble getting specific jobs done, ask others how the organize and execute the task; perhaps you’ve overlooked some short cuts.
- Make work fun – Introducing a bit of fun into your work will make the day easier for you and your customers. Challenge yourself to process one hundred pieces of paper every day for five days. Have a friendly contest with a co-worker to see who can process the most billing statements in an hour with no mistakes. If possible, flip your morning and afternoon schedules for a change of pace.
