Not many people are entertained who are late even if that is being late for a football match or a meeting. We have to learn to become more responsible and more importantly, understand our responsibilities. One is judged by how punctual he or she is. It also reflects a lot on ones upbringing and one can adopt many methods to be punctual if one desires.
Some ways by which one will never be late and will always succeed in meeting a deadline and discussed below.
You should make the deadlines extremely clear to you client as soon as you are involving him with any project. Sometimes it so happens that the client misinterprets what you say hence deadlines are not met. This has to be made clear right in the beginning in any manner that you choose. You could sign a contract with your client as well. This results in proper work in an organization. Due to this the client also becomes more responsible and produces more results.
One thing which shows how inefficient a person can be is a person making false promises. You can fool somebody once, twice, thrice but not all the time. Once your true colors are revealed nobody will trust you. Be honest and if you can do it then say it otherwise don’t say it. Many people let others down just by false commitments. Once a promise is made one works to fulfill it resulting in self satisfaction and a high delivery rate as well.
Do something that will constantly remind you that you have made a promise and you have to fulfill it. You could set a reminder in your mobile or write in on a strip of paper and stick it on your desk. This will remind you after every minute that you have to meet a deadline and you will never fail.
The rate at which you can work can be determined by no one else but you.
Suppose you have to complete 50 articles in a week, you will be able to judge how to divide them equally so you have time for other errands as well. You must learn to give important things importance first. That is what will mold your character and get you a high reputation. If you have some other work tomorrow then try and finish tomorrow’s work today. This is the key to success and is known as time management which is essential for a healthy and growing job.
Times during which an emergency can arise have to be foreseen from before and a separate slot of time should be free for you. This has to be made by you and it is only you who can be the best judge of this. Never make excuses where work is concerned and you will excel in what you do.
For a person who knows what time management is about, meeting deadlines is like a piece of cake for him or her. Take on only so much work that you can complete. Once you master this, you will never have any work pressure on you.
