Many companies are taking advantage of efficiency training classes for their employees. Efficiency is basically getting a job done in as little time as possible with minimal energy output. This training can help you both at work, at home and elsewhere in life. Efficiency will speed things up and free up some time for yourself if it’s done correctly.
One of the first topics discussed in efficiency training was time management. Learning to manage your time can carry over from work to home and back. Learning how to prioritize and delegate tasks can speed up your work production immensely. You don’t have to do everything, you can focus on your job and learn to let go of control on some things and let someone else handle those things.
When preparing for your day you can streamline your tasks if you think about how a typical day goes for you. You get up and brush your teeth, make lunch, decide what to wear etc. Instead of doing it this way, consider making your lunch the night before and laying out your clothes the night before. You will save at least 15 minutes to half an hour by streamlining your day in this fashion.
Track Your Progress
Many people choose to track their progress by journaling. Write down your daily tasks and look at your list and see if there are ways to streamline your day. Can you move things around to speed things up? Can you have someone else do something so that it can free you up to do other tasks? Keep a daily journal and see if you can see a pattern that slows you down in efficiency.
Any company efficiency is going to involve delegation. Have someone else take out the trash. Have someone else make the office coffee. You get the idea, you don’t have to do it all. You just have to focus on your responsibilities and tasks at hand.
Learn To Say No
A lot of time is spent in many companies trying to get someone else to do something. Be responsible and do your job. Say no to the other jobs that someone else is doing. You don’t have to be mean and nasty to do this, you can simply say, no. If they persist tell them you have to do your job.
Efficiency training is a great tool for any one to learn.
