There’s no doubt that all of us would welcome a few more hours in the day if it was an option. So much to do, so little time.
And this problem is only exacerbated in any work environment.
Think about your typical team members. Quite often, even your most diligent and dedicated staff members have trouble managing their time. And laziness and carelessness have nothing to do with it at all. Some hardworking people still have a difficult time putting together a proper schedule and changing small bad habits that deprive them of huge chunks of time.
These days your employees have to deal with so much stuff at once. It’s quite rare to see somebody who has only one task and can work uninterrupted for as long as that project takes. An email comes marked “ASAP”; a colleague asks for help with an urgent matter; or, as the manager or business owner, you call everyone in for an unscheduled meeting. Their entire daily plan and general control of their time goes downhill very fast.
The bottom line here is this:
Ensuring that your team members are arranging their schedules, and devoting some time to helping them improve their organizational skills are certainly worthy investments.
If you find these things nearly impossible to accomplish and don’t know where to start, don’t worry. There are some actionable techniques that just might do the trick for you (and you might want to share them with your team members too!)
Our friends at Custom-Writing.org have compiled 15 of them into a neat infographic that will assist you and your employees in your attempts to make yourselves better at managing your time more wisely.
