Time Management And Quality - Take Pride In The Work That You Produce And Deliver

The 80/20 Rule , or the Pareto Principle states that 80% of the time you spend on a work project will result in 20% of the project being completed effectively.

That means that the remaining 20% of your time will be used to complete the 80% of the work left. This is the time honored statistic that is used to reflect the harsh reality of how ineffective we can all be when it comes to managing our time effectively and maximizing our productivity. When it comes to work, although we would like to do it well, often we compromise.

As a result of this imbalance of the use of our time, the work which is completed can often be hurried, and the overall quality can be compromised. This is not good for our own self worth, nor is it providing good value for money to either our employer, or our paying customers.

The effect of all this time being wasted is that when we fail to use our time effectively, we end up rushing our work. If we can complete 80% of the job in 20% of the time we have (a good example is a college student completing his assignment the night before the deadline), imagine what could be achieved if we could learn to use our time more effectively.

Not only could we find ourselves with significantly more time earned after a task is completed, but the overall quality of the work would be improved.

We have to take pride in the quality of work we provide, and go by the motto that “If a task is worth doing, then aim to do it well. "

And now, I'd like to invite you to get your free instant access to a 7-Part eCourse on Secrets To Better Time Management at where you can discover more ways to use time effectively.
