Wonder whether there is really anything wrong with being a paper piler? Think you might be too dependent on e-mail? Not sure if your ability to prioritize is as good as it might be? Wonder if your verbal and written communication skills are good enough? Can’t decide if you are a procrastinator or just work better under pressure?
No matter what your time management, focus, organizing, productivity or communication issue, just ask yourself these three questions…
- Does it work for you?
- Do you like it?
- Does it work for people who matter to you? (Clients, supervisor, support staff, co-workers, family.)
The Answers to the Questions
If you can’t answer “yes” to all three questions you need to make some changes. Maybe small ones, but changes nonetheless.
