Your Daily Routine Matters
Four Good Working Habits That Will Help Prevent Fatigue and Worry
1. Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand. A person with his desk piled high with papers on various matters will find his work much easier and more accutate if he clears that desk of all but the immediate problem at hand. I call this good housekeeping and it is the number one step toward efficiency.
2. Do things in the order of their importance. Two priceless abilities: first, the ability to think. Second, the ability to do things in the order of their importatnce.
3. When you face a problem, solve it then and there. If you have the facts necessary to make a decision. Don’t keep putting off decisions. Take up one problem at a time and come to a decision. No procrastination-no putting off. The decision might be to ask for additional facts; it might be to do something or to do nothing. But a decision was reached on each problem before passing on to the next.
4. Learn to organize, deputize, and supervise. Many businessmen are driving themselves to premature graves because they have never learned to delegate responsibility to others, insisting on doing everything themselves. Result: details and confussion overwhelm them.
