Time Saving Tips

Learn how to use your time more efficiently.

As professionals, we are all task jugglers. We are always busy, have a lot of activities going on at once and never have enough time to get any of them done.Time management is a learned skill that can help us become more efficient at doing the things that are important. Take a look at some of the ways we can begin to develop time management skills:* Take control - Take an inventory of everything you need to accomplish. Always know exactly what is on your plate. * Learn to say no - Only take on the tasks you will realistically be able to accomplish. Co-workers will appreciate your help if you are able but they will also be thankful for your honesty if you are too busy. * Delegate appropriately - You can't always handle everything by yourself. Keep the jobs that you consider to be most important for yourself and ask for help with the responsibilities that are less important. * Take interruptions in your stride - Control the amount of times you let yourself lose focus. * Prioritize - List your order of business then list the steps you need to take to accomplish each. * Set a timetable to measure how you are doing* Keep tabs on yourself and make good use of your time* Have alternatives for how you will spend your time if you have to wait for someone or something* Don't inundate yourself - Be sure to take some time out for yourself to clear your head and relax. Most of all, try to remember - time management takes time!Article written by Personnel for Non-Destructive Testing http://www.pfndt.cominfo@pfndt.com
