Carolina Consulting Explore Time Management Strategies To Boost Achievement
Carolina Consulting has recently taken a deeper look into the importance of time management and the positive effect this has on an individual’s contribution in the workplace.
When observing successful entrepreneurs, Carolina Consulting saw regular tips which focused on managing schedules effectively to dramatically improve performance both professionally and personally. Identifying and implementing these strategies can offer a multitude of benefits including lowered stress levels, increased productivity, and greater quality of work.
Stress is an element commonly associated with the work place and Carolina Consulting looks to time management for a solution to this problem. Key features of time management include planning and preparing each day, setting clear objectives, prioritising these objectives, and putting a plan into action. It’s suggested by Carolina Consulting that this creates a feeling of achievement and allows an individual to mentally be prepared to tackle the day’s tasks. Carolina Consulting say research by the Mayo Clinic, leaders in the medical field and Fortune’s “top 100 companies to work for”, has found that by managing time better, a person minimises stress and improves their quality of life. According to the British Heart Foundation, stress in the workplace has several potential links to heart disease. Amongst these are hardened arteries and elevated blood pressure. In addition to these direct effects, stress in the workplace is also attributed to unhealthy habits such as smoking and unhealthy snacking.
Jack Bertok, Manager of Carolina Consulting, understands the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and its ability to reduce stress and states “Daily exercise is something I value and have only been able to do by mastering great time management. This allows me to have some well-earned personal time and gives me greater satisfaction in both my personal and professional life.”
As continued growth is a priority, Carolina Consulting focus on time management to boost productivity in the work place. Effective time management emphasizes structure which allows individuals to mentally prepare themselves for specific tasks at specific times throughout the day. This structure gives every task direction and allows people to see the bigger picture behind the hard work they invest. An interview of Joe Adkins, a global icon in Real Estate and Property Management, shares his tips on how he ensures that productivity is maximised in his office. Joe keeps his workspace completely clear by shredding documents as he completes the task. “The more folders you have on your desk, the less productive you are because you are looking at all these stacks of things that need to be done.” By creating this visual presentation of work that needs to be completed, nothing gets overlooked and time is allocated to all tasks.
Carolina Consulting comments that reduced stress and improved productivity are only valuable if they accompany an increased quality of work. Once a structure is made to a person’s day, this allows each task to be given individual attention and allows the focus to be on the quality of the work completed. Carolina Consulting report in an interview of Arik Kislin, a leading entrepreneur in sales management, reveals that he structures his staff training in such a way that gives each new member an entire month to learn his schedule and observe the level of commitment he devotes to the quality of work produced by his companies. The focus of this training is always aimed toward zero tolerance of misuse of time. By doing this, Arik looks to minimise excess expenditure and successfully runs his head office with only 12 staff members. Jack Bertok of Carolina Consulting acknowledges the importance of work quality; “focus on proper coaching and structure to an individual’s day is the only way to ensure a quality job gets done and to maximise their professional potential.”
