Time Is Of The Essence: Manage It Wisely

There is a lot that can be said about the way that you do things in addition to why and when they get done. What does & doesn’t get done in relation to performance & time management, can be critical in business. Performance, productivity & time management go hand in hand, which equates to “time is of the essence”. Your performance stems from your motivation, productivity, time management and behavior. Many times performance n’ time management determine how well your operations are run.

In dealing with time management; you and/or your team, should strategically plan your time and activities throughout your organization. It’s not just what you’re doing for today. It’s also for the days, weeks and months ahead.

You do have a strategic plan don’t you?

Strategic planning & implementation helps to get the job done, improve your performance, your productivity and maintain a better business. Proper performance is imperative in relation to organizational outcomes and success.

Depending on how you define effective performance; your job or business performance can be a poorly defined term. Your performance and your business performance are two different variables. What you do with your time & how you manage it, can be important towards what you want to achieve. It has a lot to do with how well you strategically plan your activities. What you do within an organization leads to better business performance. Sometimes how well you or your team strategically plan and implement your activities, determines what will and won’t get done and your level of success. Which can lead to the failure or success of a business or project.

Performance management isn’t just for employees; it’s for managers, supervisors, ceo’s, entrepreneurs etc… You need to have yourself in check before you correct others. Many times your performance stems from your behavior & motivation. Which leads to proper or improper performance and time management of your daily activities which determines your outcomes/ results.

Outcomes are the results of an individual’s performance & influences. There are more factors that determine outcomes than just behaviors and actions. Performance is more than the observable actions of an individual. It can consist of mental productions such as answers or decisions.

First of all, you need to lay out a strategic plan for the daily,weekly or monthly activities. You can plan this with your team, co-workers or an outside strategy consultant.

Once you have your plans laid out, then there’s the implementation. Within an organization there needs to be effective collaboration to help proceed with effective implementation of your set strategic plans. If you are working by yourself then you have to hold yourself accountable or seek a partner for support. If not, your plans may fall through with little to nothing getting accomplished which leads to little to no success in your business or projects.

If a business or project succeeds or fails, it can be determined by a lot of factors. But your performance and time management plays a big part in the outcomes. But how effective is your performance? First you have performance and second effectiveness; effectiveness of that performance.

Effectiveness is the ratio of outputs to inputs- those inputs being effort, monetary costs, resources, etc… You get what you put in. Your performance should be goal relevant, kept on schedule and directed towards overall business or project goals.~Clerical Business Solutions
