Productivity and efficiency in work

Michael over in Swift Accounts has been "mentoring" me a bit on improving productivity & efficiency in my work, which has led me to dwell on the matter a bit of late, and I've put together some of my thoughts on it in a summarised form below.

Overall, in your work, you need to:

  • Set up the right ways / SYSTEMS for doing things
  • Use the best tools
  • Learn self-discipline and maintain it (constant checking of your behaviour & pinching yourself)

For the individual it's about eliminating time wasting; for a group there are many other issues to consider to do with delegation, communication, management etc.

The aspects of productivity that I'm most interested in considering are summarised here...
