Pace Yourself

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Although we live in a time where technology is reaching higher heights we also must face one of the lowest points in the world’s economy. It’s important to realize that with many businesses falling under the economical strain it is undoubtedly difficult to find work. A vendor may find himself completely busy at one point and empty handed the next so it’s important that work is carefully scheduled out. Some of your clients may want things done as quickly and efficiently as possible which is understandable but an individual works at their own pace. The question you need to ask yourself is will the client sacrifice a couple hours more over the predetermined amount of time or the overall quality of the project they assigned you to complete? People often get caught up in their work and spend long hours into the night in order to finish up some last minute tasks for a project. It’s important that these tactics do not become habits which can lead to negative effects such as sloppy work or staying past your usual schedule of hours. A worker needs to work at a constant pace to ensure things are done right and also to stay consistent so work isn’t rushed or left until the last minute. It’s sometimes better to stay within your safe zone instead of going up and beyond the requirements and stretching yourself too thin to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time.
