Dear valued visitors,
Recently I have visited several blogs and find that almost everyone of us finding difficulty to cope with daily activities due to time constraints and other reasons known to each individual. Some find it stressful and I see there is a real need to discuss this issue as how to achieve more at the same time working less. This is the day of my discussion.
To kick off this topic, I take this opportunity to share some of my thoughts, which may be useful to you. To make thing easier, I list down some pointers as below:-
Try to establish an orderly system, which is work friendly and easy for you to retrieve your information speedily. No doubt there is more work initially, but it pays handsomely at the later stage.
2. Be precise
Make it a point to make your statement precise. I realize that it is not easy, therefore we need to improve the skill constantly. Most of the time, I find that lots of time are wasted as a result of not sending the message precisely.
3. Making use of the most effective mode of communication
Try to make it a habit to use the most effective mode of communication such as email especially if you have to send the same message to many people. You will be surprised at its outcome as compared to other verbal means.
4. Do Lists
Make it a point to record down the tasks you need to perform. Then schedule them according to their priority. In this manner, you tend to be more efficient and effective.
5. Make use of your idling time
God is fair and has given everyone 24 hours. Don't forget that everyone of us have idle time.
6. Do more than one thing at a time
You can do more than one thing at a time that is you can multi-task. The best example is that you can brush your teeth while making a long call at your toilet bowl.
7. Plan your daily tasks in advance
8. Pray about it
You must believe in it before you pray on it.
9. Don't quit
Most of the time, we are defeated because we have given up. As such, we need to have faith in whatever we are doing and also to constantly reminding ourselves that we can do it.
You need to have patience. Only testing can produce patience. Let patience to complete its work.
11. Leave it and come back to it later
Leave it for a while and do something else. Then you may have inspiration to resume your work with new fresh idea/interest.
12 Do not push yourself unnecessary
Deadline is good, but you need to follow your heart so as to produce a masterpiece. Be flexible is the key.
13. Do not be too anxious
Do not worry unnecessary, but response to it. By acting to it, you will make the thing worse and eventually you may need to spend more time to rectify it. Here, you may use the 90/10 rule.
14. Think positive
When you think positive, everything will turn more rosy and pleasant. You will rest assure that you will have much higher productivity.
15. Work in group
It is undeniable fact that everyone of us has his own talent and skill. By using the strength of each and every member of the group, it will yield more.
16. Find your own work rhythm.
A lot of creative work can be done at odd times and places. So, schedule your work accordingly to your own work rhythm.
The great Canadian physician Sir William Osler, a teacher, medical writer and medical practitioner, set aside only15 minutes every night to compile an annotated bibliography of his huge library. His ambitious Bibliotheca Osleriana contained 7787 entries when he died.
17. Always look out for more efficient and effective way of doing things
Constantly keep your mind open especially when you are doing certain activities which involves lots of repetition. In such instance, keep on asking yourself is there any other way to get the thing done more efficiently and effectively.
Trust the above is of value to you. Please feel free to comment so as to enrich our knowledge.
