Welcome to my professional blog on the best practices and tools to save you more time at the office.
My name is Eric Seil, though I prefer to be called Rick in this forum. This platform informs employees, managers, and entrepreneurs to perform their best while running their businesses efficiently. There are posts on some of my time-saving tips, along with product reviews, to increase your productivity. I will do book reviews regarding the most effective methods of time management in the workplace. Additionally, I may have a couple of posts that can help you save time outside the office now and then.
Over the years, I struggled with time management. I am not a procrastinator, but some days flew by and found myself not accomplishing much. If you know what that’s like, you’re not alone. Often, I struggle with managing time during my career. In the jobs I worked in, I prefer to go slower, but I know I have to go faster to meet deadlines at work. It was frustrating, and I learned some valuable lessons with managing my time on the job. Whether you work in a formal office setting with other coworkers, a manager who overlooks a group of associates, or someone who runs a business, we all struggle with time management every once in a while. Fortunately, you can easily change your daily habits and turn them into more productive, time-saving practices.
I have discovered techniques to help me get more done. Whether it’s reading self-help/productivity books, using time-management software and products, all of these resources have helped make my time useful. I am much better at prioritizing tasks on my to-do list. Also, I know how to set limits on what I should or should not be doing at certain times of the day. I still struggle at times, but I am so much better and more focused than I was two-three years ago.
WHY I WANT TO HELP YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS
There are no doubt people (unintentionally) drain a significant amount of time doing meaningless tasks. One of them could continuously be checking your email, a passive job where no real work gets finished. I’ve observed some coworkers and managers practicing bad habits that can harm any company. Moreover, not changing these habits into better ones can result in lower productivity and possibly little revenue down the road. Lower productivity, along with little income, is common fears that no business owner or CEO wants to go through if things turn out for the worst.
We are not perfect, and I acknowledge my flaws and the mistakes I have in the past. We are not designed to be efficient or behave like robots. Still, we can be very creative, coming with new ideas — creativity results in innovation and better approaches to living life. I have the drive and energy to help people identify typical time killers, to reflect on them, and to discover new methods to save time for more meaningful things. Through my own experiences, I want to provide value to others, so they don’t have to feel more frustrated or unsatisfied with where they’re at in life.
My mission is to inform workers to manage their time effectively.
Time can be your best asset, or it can be your worst enemy.
If you’re not using your time wisely, you may find yourself disappointed and unhappy. That’s how I felt in the past, but you don’t have to be that way. We only get to live life once- we won’t live on forever, so make the most out of your career.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below, and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
